Alivia Grace

Well, in case you missed the news posted elsewhere, we have a new member in our family! Alivia Grace. I'll post pictures from the last week full of joy at this new addition to our family soon, but I just had to share this picture from seconds ago as she sits next to me as I work on some last minute Christmas gifts from the computer.

Her name, Alivia, has a meaning in Spanish. Combined with her middle name, Grace, her name means "soothing grace" or "relieving grace."

We did just like the name Alivia because is sounded nice and seemed to fit this precious girl. But, we appreciated the meaning that it held as well. We are truly blessed to have the assurance that through our Savior, Jesus Christ, whose birthday we celebrate at this special time of Christmas, we are given the greatest gift - God's grace. His grace truly does relieve and soothe our souls as he wipes away our sin and sets us free from the bonds of death for a joyous life in Him!

It is our prayer as parents that both Alivia AND Jaden (and any other kiddos that may come - no promises or suggestions just yet though!) as well as all that our lives may touch will KNOW and have peace in this precious promise from God.
