Gideon Matthew Furlough

Today, words hardly do justice to the blessings that Gideon Matthew Furlough brought into this world on March 31st at 7:47am. He lived here with us for an amazing hour and a half.   The stories are numerous as are the unlimited ways God provided peace and mercy to our little family of six yesterday.

Over the next few weeks I will slowly unpack and share the details of yesterday, and how for one day heaven and earth seemed to have collided.  For now, I am going to let the pictures do all the talking.

Gideon's baptism.  Pastor Mitch baptized sweet baby Gideon with water from the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized so many years ago.  Now Gideon is getting the best shoulder rides from the Lord Himself along streams of peaceful waters.
