After putting up a fight, Cana JoyAnn entered into the world this morning at 7:58 am. She was not happy about her new environment. It wasn’t until late afternoon that she settled down to rest.
She has great hair. Her older sister, Eden, had similar hair when she was born; it is now white blonde.
It is cool to think that we are a complete family now. How can we be used by God now that we couldn’t do before Cana’s arrival? It is amazing to consider the impact that one more person can have in a family and in the world.
We chose the name Cana for a few reasons: 1.) We think that it is a pretty sounding name and other people seem to agree; 2.) We’ve never met anyone named Cana; 3.) We like the story of the “Wedding of Cana” in John 2 when he fills ordinary vessels with something extraordinary. We hope the same will be true for our Cana.
The middle name is created from two obvious words: “Joy,” which is also a pretty name and “Ann,” which is my mother’s middle name.
