Such a joyous occasion – Luke Samuel Rector was born to my son Richard and his wife Laura at 7:44am on Saturday, October 30, 2010. He weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and was 20.5 inches long.
After multiple setbacks the birth of Luke is certainly a miracle and a blessing to us all. He’s been bathed in prayer for the whole nine months and we’re grateful to our sovereign Lord for bringing him into the world. From Laura’s facebook post – “Luke means “light” and Samuel means “God has heard” or “requested of God.”
I’m hoping to do a “newborn” photo session before Luke is two weeks old but for now here’s a quick snap from my iPhone. Congratulations to Laura and Richard!
