Jaxton Isaac: One Month

"God made a world out of his dreams, 
Of wondrous mountains, oceans, and streams,
Prairies and plains and wooded land,
Then paused and thought, 'I need someone to stand
On top of the mountains, to conquer the seas,
Explore the plains and climb the trees,
Someone to start small and grow
Sturdy, strong like a tree.'

He created boys, full of spirit and fun,
To explore and conquer, to romp and run,
With dirty faces, banged up chins,
With courageous hears and boyish grins.
When He had completed the task He'd begun,
He said, 'That's a job well done.'"
- Art Knight 
 "Everything on earth, shout with joy to God!
Sing about his glory! Make his praise glorious!"
- Psalm 66:1-2

"He has put his angels in charge of you
to watch over you wherever you go."
- Psalm 91:11
"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the skies
announce what his hands have made."
- Psalm 19:1
"I praise you because you made me
in an amazing and wonderful way.
What you have done is wonderful.
I know this very well."
- Psalm 139:14
Jaxton, little man, you're one month old already. One month full of sleepy days, endless cuddles, and tender cradles. You've had lots of visitors since you arrived - many greeting you in the hospital, many stopping by our home to meet you, and many sending packages and love from faraway places. I'm thankful for family and friends that celebrate you - the gift of life, the wonder of birth, and the joy of your arrival.

In one short month, you've grown so much! Your toes almost reach the end of your newborn sleepers. Your fingers stretch out of your sleeve without needing to be cuffed. Your eyes are open more and more. Sleeping or awake, you are beautiful. Tender and tiny and precious.

I love you, Jax, and I praise God for gifting me with the joy and privilege of being your mom.
