Yes, woe to those who bring about the days of Isaiah 5:20-24!
And someday, woe to those who are pregnant or nursing child...but these are not those days, not yet. These are still the days to dedicate the fruit of one's womb to the Most High God.
FROM FAITHFUL, LOVING PARENTS
We are happy and thankful that our Abba entrusted us with another son. He was born on December 9th 2014, exactly one year after our firstborn son Jeasseyah was robbed out of the arms of my wife, while she was in the children's home after the first raid on September 5, 2013.
On the morning of our son's birth, I looked out of the window and I witnessed the most beautiful sunrise upon the valley. It deeply touched my heart.
The first name of our son is Zerach, which means: rising of the light, or sunrise. Zerach is also used in the Bible in the context of the rising of the glory of God.
The full name of our son is Zerach Chosah -- to trust that there will be a sunrise, even for us as a people. It's darkest just before the dawn. We are learning to not neglect the minchot (our gatherings each morning and evening) and to turn our hearts to our children and to one another. We want to trust together with you.
We love you,
Your friends Tamim and Keziah.
P.S. Thank you for your prayers and all your sweet letters.
