Ode to the Morning Star

Today our family was blessed with the birth of a very healthy 8.1 lb baby-Emery Rae Gutierrez. There was much anticipation, excitement and tears of joy. She's the first great grandchild for my parents, the first grandchild for my brother Arnold and his wife Theresa, and the first child for my niece Erika & her husband Rey. My beloved nephews-Martin & Greg are now uncles and will get to experience the joy of spoiling their niece just as I spoiled mine & them.  Next month the matriarch of our family-Guadalupe Rivera turns 80. Thank you God for your continued blessings upon our family. As night is turning into early morning, I will look out my window to the sky and bow my head in grace with an Ode to the Morning Star. 

Title & music inspired by Ottmar Liebert-In the Arms of Love
