Jordan Christine Scott

Jordan made a grand and quick entrance into the world today to the delight of her parents, Jeff & Joy, and her brother, Joshua. Jordan was 7 pounds, 4 ounces and 1'9". She's pretty darn beautiful.

I've spent an hour or so reflecting on her short life. What a beautiful thing.

I confess that I don't understand a lot about life. I've had several friends recently who've either lost a baby prior to birth or just can't even get pregnant. And here Meghan and I are with a wonderful 19-month old boy and two girls on the way. I can quite surely tell you that I am no more righteous than my friends. I don't understand the distribution of joy via children at this point. But blessed be the name of the Lord.

Here's a video I made for Jordan's arrival. Some might find the choice of music interesting for a baby video. I think the words of the song are quite poignant in light of what you're watching.
