      Pete Miller just called and Rebecca gave birth to Andrew Robert Miller around 8 a.m. today.  He is 19 1/4 inches long and weighs 6 lbs. and 9 ozs.  They are at Mercy Hospital.  Rebecca and family were very pleased to have Kathy Anthony for her nurse.  Kathy worked the night shift and Becca had gone in at 7:30 p.m. so she was with her through the night.  They were short-staffed this morning so Kathy worked the morning shift and was there when baby was born.  Thanks, Kathy...Pete told me what a blessing you were to her.
Please pray for Jason.  He is up at Menomonee Falls, WI where he is taking a VERY difficult college course.  If he doesn't take it will be 2 years before it is available again and he has to have the class.  He wants so badly to be here with his wife and new baby and yet if he comes home it is possible he won't be able to keep up the class.  I think he has a couple more weeks.  Becca is a little "trooper" and wants him to get the class finished.  Her sister is also here with her which is a real blessing.  Pray for Jason and Becca as they go through this very happy and yet very difficult time of separation..  May the Lord give him wisdom and peace as he seeks His will as to what he should do.
Congratulations to the Miller family....we are all anxious to see your sweet little boy.
Love in HIm,

Becca at hospital

Elizabeth's 1st Birthday

April 7th, 2011 Elizabeth's first Birthday

It is so amazing how fast a year goes by. It seems like yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital. I know that in what seems like just a few days she will be going to college and then leaving our home. For now she is with us and we love her so much.

She had a good birthday party. When it came to the cake she wasn't so sure about it. She didn't dig into it very much. Grandma and Grandpa gave her a riding toy that she played with until late last night. This morning she went right to the toy and began to climb on it an start pushing its buttons.

As I watched Elizabeth on her toy I thought about how easy it is to make her happy. I then began to think about how easy it is for God to please us with simple things like money, health, houses and so much more. It is so easy to be satisfied with the gifts that God gives instead of being satisfied with the giver. Oh, how short sighted and vain it is to live this way and yet I find that is my own tendency. Lord, today let me be content with you and not just your gifts.

I hope you find this encouraging.
