We are thrilled to welcome the newest member of our family, Davia Lynn Waller. Born today, Nov. 12, 2014 at 10:30am CT and weighs 8Lbs, 10 oz and is 21 inches long.
The name Davia [pronounced deh-VEE-uh] comes from the name David, which means beloved or loved of God. When we recognize God’s love for us, His love casts out all fear. His immense love poured out to us gives us the ability to allow God to love others through us. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
Lynn is Priscilla’s middle name and means tender or beautiful. We pray God would allow our little daughter to have a tender heart towards Him and others. That tender spirit is the internal radiance that reflect’s God’s love and that is the essence of internal beauty. Since Paul shares David’s middle name, we thought it would be special for our first-born girl to share Priscilla’s middle name.
Heavy labor started around 2am this morning and we had the joy of welcoming our first girl into the world at 10:30am. By 2:00 this afternoon, we were most grateful for a good meal brought over by David’s brother Adam, and his wife Valerie.
We are now a family of four and thrilled about the new addition! Children are a gift from God! Someone once asked, “How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers!”[youtube]http://youtu.be/vZ9A5TKaVNs[/youtube]
Listen to the very first message that Davia Lynn Waller gives to her new world. Also captured is her big brother’s very first sight of his sister. He is so cute and had a hard time when someone else wanted to hold her. He kept asking for more time with her. What a sweet beginning to a life-long relationship.
