Little Souls

Psalm 139:15-16
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

I sit here beside a sleeping baby and I can't help, but to look at him and his brother and I think about these little Souls in these beautifully made little bodies and I wonder what will you become. Are we doing a good job with you? Do you feel love like you deserve to feel? Are we teaching you how much God loves you? Will your little Soul cry out to Him all the days of your life? What will you be when you grow up Little Soul?

Will you cure cancer?
Will you invent a new toy?
Will you drive a school bus?
Will you have your own boys?
Will you become a preacher?
Will you teach others good?
Will you be an example?
Will you live as you should?
Will you be kind to others?
Will you give to the poor?
Will you love without question?
What do you have in store?
Do you know that we love you?
That you bring us such joy?
Even more do you know He loves you?
That you're His little boy?
So we commit to you sons,
we'll try with all our might
to raise you to know Him
so you'll live your life right.
