Children are a gift of the Lord...

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. - Psalm 127:3

Not every baby at Clearnote Church, Bloomington gets his pic broadcast to the world within minutes of his birth. It's largely a function of whether or not my dear wife, Mary Lee, is present and sends me a pic. Which she did just now of our latest addition to the known and seen children of the church: here is Abraham Knox Menzel, son of Pastor Jacob (Jake) and Amanda Menzel. Mother and son are doing well--for which we give thanks to God.

Tim serves Clearnote Church, Bloomington, Indiana. He and Mary Lee have five children and fifteen grandchildren.


Amen! Thank the Lord.

Looks like he's trying out for the choir already!  Congratulations!

I'm the father of an 'Abraham' too and a great nickname - my older son coined it - is 'Abo' - long 'o' sound.  

Blessings to you, Pastor.


Our Joseph's middle name is Abraham. It's great to see it used as a first name. Praise God for His gift of this little man!

Great news. Praise Jesus!
