Our newest son:
Silas Creed Rickstrew
This morning we went out to a large oak tree that overlooks the farm and surrounding area to bury Silas' placenta, officially name him, and pray over him.
Our prayer for our son, Silas, is that he would live a life like Silas in the Bible. It is said of him, "Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsabbas, and Silas, leading men among the brothers." Acts 15:22. We see in the book of Acts that Silas was a faithful companion to Paul and was used of God to start the early church of Jesus Christ. He is referred to as a prophet, a leader, a teacher, a preacher, a worshiper, and one who is called faithful.
May our very own Silas live such a life before our Lord!
Creed means "I believe" and our prayer is that Silas Creed will grow up knowing what he believes and live a life that is a courageous and faithful statement of belief to others.
May God bless this precious little boy.
