After 9 months and 8 days, our beautiful daughter Mercy Esther is finally here. We chose the name because the Bible verse that has been impressed on the hearts of Carol and I the most in 2008 was Micah 6:8 "... live justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God." We have seen God show mercy to us in so many different ways and we also saw God give us the opportunity to live out mercy in 2008 ... we just knew that if we had a girl, her name had to be mercy. We will pray the meaning of "mercy" (leniency and compassion shown toward others, a disposition to be kind and forgiving) over our daughter throughout her life.
Welcome to our world and to our family, Mercy.
