Ryder Andrew Chastain
looks healthy and right on target to
arrive mid to late January!
Praise God with us, dear friends, for blessing us with a healthy and beautiful baby boy. We are so thankful to this addition to our family and cannot wait to see his face and hold him close. Seeing him today brought us such joy and excitement. We are thrilled Rigg gets a brother and we, well we, get a SON!
We might have just "met" our son today, but we know that God knew all along "who" Ryder was and "who" Ryder is going to be...Praise and Honor and Glory to Him who deserves nothing less then our all!
Psalm 139 1-16
O LORD, you have searched me
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O LORD.
You hem me in—behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,"
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
