God’s miracles happen at all times of the day and night. 

About 3:40 a.m. on April 14 another one happened for us.  Our first grandson was born.  An eight-pound miracle straight from heaven came into our lives. 

He didn’t come easy, but the final results are all that matters. 

Two days later and I think my daughter is beginning to forget the pain, and she is praising our Heavenly Father for the gain.  His name is Boston Robert and he is perfectly beautiful.

I have always thought that babies are God’s way of telling us how much He loves us and that He still has plans for us. 

Of course the Scriptures tell us that His love is eternal, but babies are a great physical reminder of how magnificent His love is. 

“His love endures forever.” (Psalm 136) 

How anyone can behold a newborn child and not see a miracle from God is beyond me.   

If you read this column very often, you may recall the one titled, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”  The article was about a call I received from my daughter telling me that her gynecologist had told her she had a 1-percent chance of ever getting pregnant. 

That 1-percent chance for man became a 100 percent healthy baby boy from the Lord. 

Two weeks after the first call she called again.  She was pregnant. 

As I held Boston I thought about how upset my daughter was after hearing the doctor’s news nine months ago, and how happy she is now. 

We must never stop trusting in the sovereignty of our God. 

And we must never forget these words from Isaiah 30:18, “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.” 

Our family has a healthy, happy baby boy.  He is the answer to many prayers. 

Boston reminds us of God’s grace, His power, His perfection and His boundless love. 

We are all singing, “Boston is awesome.” 

We are all praising, “God is great.” 

“His love endures forever.”
