Liz and Chris, God bless and comfort you both. Liz was and is surrounded by so much prayer. I will let her tell all of you the delivery story, but just know she did wonderful. God allowed her to have Jedidiah naturally and with what I feel is minimal pain for a vaginal delivery. Jedi was wearing a hand crocheted baptismal bib given by someone special and received blow by oxygen while he was baptized by his uncle Fr. Joe. Fr. Jack assisted him in both this and the sacrament of confirmation. The night has been long for the Chris Liz and Jedi. The sun is up and with it a new day.
I know and feel that all of you out there want to do so much for them. After prayer this morning I feel the following best sums up their immediate need.
Pray that the Holy Spirit comes upon them and the caregivers that are present and brings them:
Wisdom,Understanding(Faith),Counsel,Fortitude(courage),Knowledge,Piety,and Fear of the Lord.
Pray that the nurses, doctors, and other staff at the hospital give them the patience, compassion, gentleness, charity, and nonjudgemental care that God has instilled for all of us to give unconditionally to each other.
They are extremely tired so pray that when they have those brief moments of rest they are rejuvenated and ready for the next hurdles.
Pray and know that your prayers as their extended spiritual family are truly assisting them and their family at this time.
God Bless all of you and thank you from all of us her family!
