The other half, I held my new son in my arms.
What a sweet joy. He has the most heart-melting smile and has changed our world forever. He likes to grab my hair a lot (as if I wasn't shedding enough already) and reaches out to touch Powers now. I have a feeling that they are going to be getting really well acquainted within the next few months as Henry becomes more a mover and a shaker everyday.
He squeals when his Papa lifts him up and makes this noise "Mwamwamwaaaaa" a lot. I like to pretend that he's saying "Mama." He's a nugget and a half and I hope that I always have a grateful heart, knowing that he is a gift.
Henry, praying this for you today from 2 Corinthians chapter 5. That you would, at the earliest possible age, know your Creator and long to be with him, to please him, to be near to him. That you would have an eternal mindset. That you would, in short, love God best.
Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling...Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
Thank you, Lord.
