Feeling Like One of the Shepherds

In Luke chapter two a few shepherds are out tending their flocks when they receive some good news. The entire host of heaven comes to tell them that the Savior of the world has been born in Bethlehem and that they need to go check it out. The shepherds go and discover things exactly how the angels had told them. They found baby Jesus lying in a manger and they got excited. After all, this baby was going to grow up and rescue the world from sin. This was good news for everyone so, "they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them."
The McPherson have some good news to announce to the world, too. It's not the kind of news that is going to save the world from sin, but it is the kind that needs to be shared with all. On 25 FEB 2009 at 1718 (or 5:18PM) Alaska time, Molly Frances McPherson came into the world. Ashley and baby are doing well. The name "Molly Frances" means "freedom from sorrow" and thus far Molly has lived up to her name. She hardly cries and she is so patient with Daddy as he learns how to change diapers.
Spread the news far and wide, Molly is born. And if you did not know, two thousand years ago God sent his son Jesus into the world to save you from sin because he loves you very much. Enjoy the pictures below.
