Our Joy

This is what I wrote in our family newsletter when Hannah Joy Kurien was born on February 12, 2006.

It seems like yesterday you were in mommy’s tummy and I can’t believe you are here in our hands. You are a treasure we hold with fearful is a wonder that God could trust you to us with for a time. You are our joy and watching you is a pure delight. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 11:5 “As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.” But this we know that what our God has done in our lives bringing you to us is marvelous in our eyes. We can’t stop thanking and praising our Lord Jesus. We named you ‘Hannah’ because Yehovah is gracious to us. Our Prayers are that you be like Hannah and Mary those great women in the Bible who always set their eyes and heart on the Holy One of Israel.

 “Yivarechicha Adonai V’yishmirecha, Ya-Ayr Adonai panav Aylecha v’yichunecha; Yee saw Adonai panav Aylecha v’ya-saym l’cha shalom.” meaning: May the Lord Bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you His peace.
