"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

Meet Our Newest Addition: Solomon Colorado Heath

Our son, Solomon "Colorado" Heath, has finally arrived! We are so happy today - thanking God for this precious miracle that came into the world this morning at 5:15 a.m. (weighing almost 8 pounds - 19.25 inches long). His brothers and sister were so excited to LOVE on him - as they each held him for the first time. He is named after King David's son in the Bible - Solomon- as we thank God every day for ALL the love and grace that He has shown us....and for forgiving us for all of our many sins. His LOVE amazes us each and every day and our prayer as parents is that He will give us wisdom, as he gave Solomon, to raise our children and follow Him all the days of our lives. Lord, please continue to teach and show us to trust in the words that you gave Solomon in Proverbs 3:5-6, as he tells us to "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."

We are filled with joy to now have our baby Colorado. We love this beautiful state and are naming him after our aunts ~ Cathy Mahaffey- (Crissy's aunt) & Linda Desmond Bourke (Sean's aunt) who have given us a HUGE LOVE for this beautiful part of the country! We have so many wonderful memories with our aunts and our own children over the years - and for this we are so grateful! Thank you all for all the many prayers, encouragement & love that you have given our family as we delivered our first baby here in Peru!

Love~ The Heath Family
