Please welcome Isaiah Michael Kane into the world!

Isaiah Michael Kane

After an 11 hour labor and many hours of pushing meet our new baby BOY! Thank you to the many of you who have been praying for us during this time. It WAS NOT easy but we rejoice in it being over and praise the LORD for this new gift.

Michael - "Who is like God?"

"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool." Isaiah 1:18

"I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: 'Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory." 6:1-4

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the governments will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." 9:6-7

"O LORD, you are my God: I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago." 25:1

"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal." 26:3-4

"Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!" 30:18

"The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever." 40:8

"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak, Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." 40:29-31

"For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear' I will help you." 41:13

"This is what God he LORD says - he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it' 'I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
I am the LORD' that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols." 42:5-8

"I, even I, am ho who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more." 43:25

"And now the LORD says- he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength- he says: 'It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you may be bring my salvation to the ends of the earth." 49:5-6

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." 55:8-9

"Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool." 66:1

And many more....

Welcome to the world, Isaiah! It is a great place. It can get hard at times, but nothing beats living for Jesus and doing God's will here. Its fun.
I pray that you get to know Him as early as possible, but I think that with the family that you landed in, that part will come easily.

I bless you, and I look forward to meeting you someday.
