Babies, babies, and more babies! This June saw a massive baby boom throughout the Houston Zoo, with the biggest baby yet to come when later this summer, the zoo will welcome a 250-300-pound Asian elephant calf.

A California sea lion pup was born to first-time mother, Cali, on June 26 after a three-hour labor. The pup and Cali began to bond immediately, and nursing was spotted within hours. The sex of the pup has not yet been determined, and the mother and pup will spend a while behind the scenes strengthening their bond before they are ready to make their first public appearance.

Verse 6 of 1 Corinthians 13 is important when we are working on developing and strengthening the love we have for God and for each other. I have always loved the verse that says so clearly that we love Him because He first loved us. How true that is in earthly relationships, too. It is much easier to love someone who loved us first or loved us best. When you walk into a new situation, the mind quickly focuses on the first person who reached out to welcome you or to be your friend.
