He sang this song first.

March 22, 2012

There’s a little song I sing to Adlai at bedtime, one I wrote just for him.

It’s nothing fancy, but it’s a song about the boy he is, and about the man I know he’ll grow up to be.

The last line goes like this:

“…you’re all I have wanted, my sweet little boy.”

And I sing it every night.

But last night I was singing it, and I thought, “You really are all I’ve wanted.”

And as I thought on that, I felt God say, “So are you.”

I’ve tried for a long time to understand what the Bible tells me – that God loves me like a child.

Like his own dear son.

And I don’t know if I ever could have understood it had I not held my own baby in my arms, and known that there is not one ounce of me that goes wanting – that needs him to be anything more than he is.

    This is why we miss you, Simon and Adlai so much every day. Forgive me for stating the obvious, again.
