Edmund MacLeod Keister

Edmund 1Our son Edmund MacLeod Keister was born today at 4:46 PM. He is 8lb. 10oz. He is 21 1/4.” Will update on that when we have it. Edmund is named after the character in Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe (we want him always to remember God’s grace in converting traitors to Himself by the death and resurrection of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah). MacLeod is our Scottish clan name.

    Congratulations! Used to be able to say praise God for another covenant child, until the FV guys mucked things up ;) But praise God for another covenant child anyway. Just got back from the skate park with my son. You’re in for a lot of fun.

    Yay, yay, YAY! Congratulations :-). The Garrisons are all very excited and rejoicing with you. And I think the name you chose is lovely. Edmund is indeed a good reminder of God’s grace.

    Congratulations, Lane!
    May little Edmund be saved by grace through faith,
    Live by faith,
    Feel the joy of faith,
    Do the work of faith,
    Perceiving nothing in himself, may he find in Christ
    wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, redemption.

    woot! congratulations!

    I was sure that this latest addition to the Keister clan would have the initials ‘B.B.’ Maybe the next one, or the one after that. Congratulations.

    I plan on getting at least one good picture up on this post when I have the chance (as in, getting home from the hospital and getting to the office!). So, stay tuned for a picture. Thanks to all of you for your well-wishing. I greatly appreciate it. Gary, I will consider B.B. for a future child! ;-)

    Congratulations! Boy, have you got a lot to look forward to. My oldest is 22, and my youngest just turned 16. I can’t remember what it’s like to not have children. May God richly bless your family as it grows in His grace.

    Way to go, guys! Congratulations. Many blessings to the Keister family!!

  22. July 26, 2007 at 1:58 pm

    Nice to hear it, Lane! Congrats.

  23. July 26, 2007 at 2:22 pm

    May the Lord bless your family Lane. I commend your use of your Scottish clan name. Faith and heritage go hand-in-hand.

    Congrats! Great name. If you have another, will it be Eustace?

    Praise the Lord!

    How many children does that make it now?

  26. July 26, 2007 at 10:06 pm

    Congratulations, Lane,

    I like the name Edmund, and I like your reason for choosing it. I may be the only one here who would recognize that MacLeod was the name of the character in the TV series “The Highlander,” Duncan MacLeod of the clan MacLeod. Are you related?

    God’ blessings upon you and your family,

  27. July 27, 2007 at 7:07 am

    Congratulations Lane, the Lord has certainly blessed you.

  28. July 27, 2007 at 9:38 am

    Awww. He is just too cute :-). Thank you for posting a picture!

    Love your son’s name!! Somehow I was thinking of Edmond as in Dantes (as in your favorite novel, Lane!) No wonder you like the name– two amazing books using it! We are so happy for you! Congratulations on cousin #37!!! Rachel

    Dear Lane and Sarah,

    Congratulations on your new arrival! May God give you wisdom, grace, and strength for each new day with your three children. Great to see a picture of the new arrival, and I like his meaningful name as well.

    God’s blessings to all of you!
