Introducing Ace Joseph Cahill

Ace Joseph Cahill

The first initials of our children form an acronym. We started with the intent to spell “Life is good” but changed that when our first “O” became an “R” with our 8th child Ryder. With a “GR” to go on, we finished out the acronym out with Ace’s name to make “Life is Grace.”

Ace: Ace means Unity. In card games, the ace is sometimes the highest and other times the lowest. Jesus came from Heaven to earth to bring unity between God (the highest) and man (the lowest). We pray that Ace’s life will be used of God to bring unity between God and mankind.

Joseph: He is named in honor of his Uncle Joseph. We are grateful for the investment Joseph and Stacie have made in our lives and hope he grows up to be a man of God like both his uncle and Joseph in the Bible.

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” Titus 2:11-14

Hymn: Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
‘Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.
