Duck was introduced to a new reality last week.
However he didn’t exactly come blasting into the world. He came reluctantly and with much convincing. In fact he had to be coaxed by an ambulance trip to the hospital, flashing lights and all. Even then he chose to stay put until the doctors performed an emergency cesarean section on his momma.
Thankfully both he and momma are fine.
He’s adjusting to all of his new surroundings. Flailing his arms and kicking his legs, he learns there is no longer a limit to his space. He’s been kissed by big brothers and licked by the dog.
Duck knows that when he cries, someone will take care of him. He isn’t worried about what he will eat or where he will sleep. If he is cold there will be a blanket. He will never run out of family to hold and cuddle him. (Hmmm…sounds familiar!)
Matthew 6:26 “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”
Seems like big brother aptly named him Duck! But now he has a new name, one that means more than a fine feathered animal, one not decided upon by big brother!
Here’s introducing our fabulously cute nephew, Michael David, meaning “who is like God?” and “beloved”, which he definitely is!
