Chloe Rae Kiser

We introduce to you Chloe Rae Kiser. Chloe – for the house church leader in the church of Corinth (1 Corinthians 1:11). Rae – for my Grandmother’s middle name – Geneva Rae Kiser – a woman of great faith and perseverance.

Chloe was born at 12:29 p.m., Friday, October 2. She weighed 8 lbs. flat and was 19.5 inches long.

I giggled and cried off and on for several hours after she was born. It was a magical thing.

What once was thin air is now flesh and bone and ligaments.

What once was nothing is now someone.

What once was a dream in the mind of God, as one of my friends would say, is now body, soul and spirit.

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth….from the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise…. (Psalm 8:1-2)
