little life


Aiden Gray…

courageous little fire…

sweet son of mine

i met you today, wiggling about inside my womb,

flesh of my flesh, you remind me of your daddy the way you move

constant motion, curious about the world you’re in.

i’ll embrace you and let you go–into the Father’s arms…

He who designed your precious toes–

your beating heart, tiny ventricles pulsating blood

i stand


bow humbly at the wonder of it all

little life, i love you.

    Aiden Gray, we wave, smile, anxiously await! Oh, to hold you!
    But we do… in prayers.

    Marveling with you, Emily!
    All’s grace,

    Em, how beautifully put into words .. that intimately remind me of my own feelings of my first son, Joel, in my womb. Sweet son of mine … yes, it was like yesterday! Thanks for bringing those thoughts back so clearly and for surprising me by bringing tears to my eyes! Take each new day and just treasure every moment of this new tiny life that is Aiden Gray. What a blessing.
