Our first grandson was born today!

July 14th, 2012 Posted in sermons

My wife, Cathe, and I are happy to report that our fifth grandchild and first grandson was born today.
He is 8 pounds, 8 ounces of pure boy!
He also has blonde hair.
His parents, our son Jonathan and our daughter-in law Brittni Laurie, are naming him in honor of Jonathan’s brother, Christopher David Laurie who, as you know, is with the Lord today.
I love having grandaughters but I must admit I’m looking forward to going again to the boy’s section of the toy store!
So thank all of you for your prayers.
Photos are coming!

    How exciting for you all to have another sweet baby in the family. Even more exciting that you have a little grandson; and that he will carry the name of Christopher David Laurie. I remember little Topher Laurie very well and he was a wonderful little boy full of wonder.

    I am happy for your family. I know you are honored that your grandson was named after his uncle. I have 5 granddaughers, so maybe a grandson is in my future as well.

    Congratulations to you and your family on the bith of your grandson Christopher David! I don’t know if you thought of this, but his birthdate 7/14, reminded me of the upcoming Harvest America event and the verse Chronicles 7:14! Wow! How awesome is that! How appropriate that baby Christopher would be born on that date. I bet your son is smiling down from heaven on all of you! God bless you and your family and God bless your Harvest America Event. May He save every soul for Jesus’ sake! Our prayers are with you!
