It’s a Boy!

It is difficult to imagine an experience that rivals becoming a grandparent. We have had the wonderful opportunity to welcome Nehemiah Paul Barnes into our family. Nehemiah was born on January 22, 2009 at 4:40 p.m. at The Toledo Hospital. His justifiably proud and thankful parents are David and Joy Barnes. If you are interested in viewing photos, David has established a web site at and you are welcome to go there. It goes without saying that Nehemiah instantly and permanently captured our hearts. Diane and I are so proud. Uncle Jonathon dearly loves his new nephew. I have been telling people that Nehemiah "meets and exceeds all possible expectations" for a grandson. It is also very gratifying to watch your kids be parents – and they are doing a GREAT JOB! Since his birth, I have done several readings of the Old Testament Book of Nehemiah. I pray earnestly that this little guy grows into his name, and is always a great servant for Christ.
