Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him
Twenty years ago today, I gave birth to my son in Homer, Alaska. Since he was my little Alaskan baby, I decorated his nursery in a whale theme. The nostalgia associated with the whale music box tugs at my heart, because I played it every time I rocked him in my arms. It plays the song, Love Makes the World Go Round. I still remember singing along with the tune like it was yesterday.
Children really do grow up in a blink.
The following verse is a special promise God gave to me years ago about my son, and one that I have watched Him fulfill:
I was cast upon Thee from the womb: Thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
I pray blessings over you, my son, and for many more years on this earth. You are a gift from God.
P.S. Happy Birthday, my no-longer-little Alaskan!
