This past Sunday was a remarkable day - a day for celebrating the gift of life. The older I get the more I am deeply touched by the birth of each new child. On this January 6th I turned one year older, my grandson Caleb would have turned eight-years-old if he was still alive, and Daniel was given a name and a blessing by his father Jordan.
As I watched all the men in our family gently encircle this tiny child I thought about the eternal circle of life. Part of that circle is death.
