Day 20: Good News

And the angel said "Fear not, for behold, I bring you GOOD NEWS of great joy..."

GOOD NEWS can be hard to come by. It seems as though the news is full of tragedy and heart ache. Those "fluff" pieces are fewer and farther in between. News of murder, burglary, destruction, and loss top the headlines more often than news of compassion, new life, small acts of kindness, or helpful neighbors. It's become an expectation that when you watch the news, you will be depressed.

But what about all of the GOOD NEWS out there. When was the last time you got really good news. Not just news of a 2hr delay from school or surprise money in your pocket, but really GOOD NEWS?

Ours was just over 2yrs ago. The GOOD NEWS of a baby. Prayers had been answered.

We wanted the GOOD NEWS to be remembered throughout Molley's life. Her middle name is Elizabeth, after Mary's cousin who also received GOOD NEWS. Molley was great news in our life, and we want her to always carry with her what a blessing she is in our lives.
