Circle of Life....

River Liliana Head.jpg
Tonight....a new soul came forth into this world....Her name is River Liliana Head...and we rejoice with her mother and father, Josh and Sophia Rose....Barbara's 15th grandchild and from Nathan and Jasmine soon to follow # 16. In the Circle of Life we get to rejoice with the celebration of a new life and the promise she brings while still crossing our sea of grief and mourning. I know Barbara is smiling and that Our Father's Hand lies on this dear little girl He has brought to us.
They had kept her name a secret and only Barbara knew it. Sophia told me tonight that after they had decided on the name...they had been talking to me after a prenatal visit where they had listened to River through ultra sound, that I had said, "Doesn't her heart beat sound like the River of Life?" They took that as confirmation.   Our Father is so good to us.....Count your blessings tonight...for we are surely counting ours!
This song is for you River Liliana......May you bring the River of Life to all you meet....and may Our Father guide your course for all your days!
Love always,
Papa Tripp
