Melanie’s in Labor!

Contractions are five minutes apart and getting intense. It is exciting to see that Baby Maxwell is on his/her way–really! As it stands now, it appears Baby will come on the official due date, TODAY! Please be praying for Melanie and Baby as they progress through labor.


“A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.”

John 16:21

    He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
    he will gather the lambs in his arms;
    he will carry them in his bosom,
    and gently lead those that are with young.
    (Isaiah 40:11)
