Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic ~ Alaskan Birth

Whales Music Box

Whale Music Box

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him
Psalm 127:3

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.
Psalm 22:10

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!
