I wanted to share with everyone this month that my wife and I welcomed our daughter Zoey Grace to Team Darrah on February 4th at 12:31 PM! We are excited, a little sleep deprived and are feeling richly blessed by God to get to begin a parenting journey of both Zoey and her big sister Raelyn Marie. She weighed in at 7 lbs., 12 oz. with a full head of dark hair and beautiful blue eyes. I see that all of my prayers were answered and that she received all of her looks from her mother!
I cannot really compare anything in my life with the experience of watching childbirth. This is only the second time I have experienced it, but it was just as powerful the second time as the first. The miracle of birth truly glorifies God and points to His handiwork. Only God, the Creator of the Universe could have come up with such a beautiful and intimate process. I cried more than my baby when I first saw her because I cannot imagine God blessing me with a blessing of this magnitude. There is nothing that can compare to the blessing of a child and it reveals His love for me beyond any other gift.
As I become a parent of yet another little girl, I learn more and more about the Father and His love for me. It teaches me a little bit more about how much He desires to know me, how much He must hate when I am hurting and how much He enjoys holding me in His arms. It teaches me that He is never too far away and is always available for me no matter what time it is or how busy He is. It teaches me about a love that would sacrifice the life of His only son so that I may be His and it leaves me astonished.
Peace and Love,
