What's Really Important

After a long, difficult pregnancy, our youngest daughter gave birth to a beautiful, red-headed little girl Saturday afternoon at 4:48 PM! Annie Chase Heale came into this world at a healthy 6 lbs., 15 oz. and measured 20" in length. This makes grandchild #13.

I want to thank the many folks that have prayed for my daughter through this time, especially our church and the SCV's Chaplains Corps. Of course, we are most thankful to our gracious God for his care, mercy, and love.

"But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them." ~ Psalms 103:17-18

Great to hear Richard! And praise God for yet another blessing for the Williams clan. Hoping mom and baby are resting well and that grandma and grandpa get some sleep.
