Alright, well last time I had a whole bunch of time during the labor to blog...not so much this time. Melinda wasn't feeling right since about 4am this morning. By the time I got up to go to work we were both pretty convinced that labor was on its way. We got to the hospital around 8:45am, waters broke around 9:45, Melinda rested a bit, then starting at about 11:10 she began to push....3 times....then little Micah Vaughn Flick was born at 11:17am weighing in at 8lbs 3 oz, 21 and 1/2 inches long with lots of dark hair at St. Luke's Hospital.
God has blessed us with 2 wonderful baby boys. Noah born last year on 10/10/07 and reborn at baptism on 11/10/07 and now Micah born on 11/13/08. We truly serve a wonderful and awesome God!
Psalm 139:14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Here's Micah's namesake: Micah 5:2 - "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times."
Soon to come for Micah - 1 Peter 3: 21: and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.
