My father-in-law wrote a lovely post welcoming Morrow into the world. He also scooped us a little bit, by partially explaining his name.

    beautiful – that name is so… wow. perfect. amazing.

    I love it. Thank you for sharing – Look forward to your rendition of choosing his name.

    What version is that Psalm 30:5? I’m sure you’ll explain, or on 22 words.

    I read that last night after I asked you what it meant : ) I was laying in bed last night thinking about it and in awe of how perfect and beautiful his name choice is. Love it. Morrow. And now, it’s what I’ll always think of when I think of him! I also love how John mentions missiong Felicity in the post. I felt it was very tender and sensitive, compassionate. I loved it.

    I love that verse, and I love his name.
    And Grandad’s post was beautiful.

    Praising the Lord that joy comes in the morning, and that Morrow has made it safely into your arms.

    I had a feeling this is where it came from, and of course I’m blubbering over how beautiful and beautifully appropriate it is.

    I’m ELATED for you! Praise God!

    What a perfect perfect name choice. Love it!

    What a beautiful name for a precious boy and a lovely poem to boot. WOW.

    Great poem for a great baby!

    So, who came up with the poem? (based on Ps 30:5)


    Which came first–the poem or the name?

    P.S. I had a co-worker friend who recently had a child after losing a 3 month old infant. In my naivete I asked if the new child helped ease the pain or even somehow took the place of the deceased. She replied that no, the pain and hurt were still there, but there is a new sense of joy. Maybe a different kind of joy then typically experienced by parents who have never lost a child.

    So special! Thinking warm thoughts of all of you. Love the poem.

    Possibly the most beautiful meaning behind a name… ever. Congratulations again!

    Absolutely beautiful story of God’s love and faithfulness. Congratulations on the birth of precious Morrow.

    Morrow (and Orison) are blessed to have a granddaddy that is so committed to pointing them to Christ. What a beautiful heritage!

    Molly, I can’t tell you how much your post on subsequent pregnancy and posts on grief have helped me. It is comforting in a way to know that others are feeling and have gone through the same exact feelings that I have felt after losing my son, Eli.
    I loved what you said about fear, and that really challenged me. Congratulations on Morrow!
