Our 100th Baby Born Celebration

Children are a gift from the Lord, they are a reward from him.  {Psalm 127:3}

Yesterday marked a day of joyous celebration! Embrace Grace celebrated our 100th Embrace Grace Baby!  Mommy Kristen Hastings, delivered Noah Jasiah at 6:39 pm on November 6, 2012.

I love the name that she has given this precious baby boy.  Noah!  Noah was given a sign of God’s promise by the rainbow in the sky. He led the animals 2 by 2 into the boat. God has spoken many promises to us at Embrace Grace.  We are seeing those promises being fulfilled in so many ways. Babies are such a treasure from Heaven above.

I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and all the earth.  {Genesis 9:13}

I love this sweet story and symbolism that Jackie shared with me after watching a little Bible movie with her daughter Brinley about Noah.  She said she was thinking about how Embrace Grace is helping save girls two at a time.  She thought it was neat how the ark was Noah, his family and the animal’s safe haven.  And the animals went on the ark two by two.  And its special how God spoke to you and Amy to “build” Embrace Grace and the girls are coming two by two (them and their little baby bellies). It’s like a safe haven God has given them on Monday nights, to rescue them from the floods outside.  They are able to see their promises coming true.

There is a children’s mother goose rhyme that has been stuck in my head for the past few weeks.  I googled it to see all the words.  Once I read them I thought to myself, I do not really care for the choice of words given on this rhyme.  You may have read this or heard this rhyme before and if so, I wanted to put a new spin on it… The original rhyme was “there was an old lady who lived in a shoe, she had so many kids she did not know what to do…” so, here is the new spin on the rhyme “Embrace Grace style” lol.

There were some sweet ladies who went to Gateway Church, this house was WAY bigger than a shoe.  They have been blessed with so much, they wondered what can we do? The ideas began growing as God began showing His heart and plan for us to welcome with open arms and to embrace the young single and pregnant ladies and babies to an encouraging class in a room that they soon outgrew.  At first there were three and then came three more, and then eight and then lots and lots more.  We fed them and shared with them God’s love and grace, they soon had a big smile on their face. They learned it can be easy to comfort and care for their little ones when they draw near to God above.  He sends down showers of mercy and love.  These ladies have so much joy in their hearts, when at first they didn’t know what they could do… and now they have so many spiritual children they have been blessed with they knew what to do… Spread the word to others so they too can join in the baby celebration.

So today and everyday we celebrate each and every new addition.  Join us in celebrating this monumental fruition.

We would love to collaborate and add baby blessings for each of the mommies to read as special encouragement. We would love to gather these in a special keepsake book to bless them with at their baby shower on 11-11.  Please post a comment of love, blessings, joy or your favorite scripture to share with our mommies and babies God has sent to us in Embrace Grace.
