Precious Child

They are idols of hearts and households;
They are angels of God in disguise;
The sunlight still sleeps in their tresses,
His glory still gleams in their eyes,
These truants from home and from Heaven,
They have made me more manly and mild;
And I know now how Jesus could liken
The Kingdom of God to a child.

– Charles M. Dickenson

Yesterday, I got to see something truly amazing, an ultrasound of my child. My wife is 16 weeks pregnant. While this will be my first child, I can’t help but feel great love for this child already. Just the thought of this child brings a smile to my face. I can’t wait to start this next adventure.

The mornings being woken up by a child jumping on me.
Running around the house as we dream of a faraway place.
The bedtime stories.
I can’t wait to show them the world, and to teach them everything I know.

I thank Heavenly Father for trusting me with one of his children. We will be having a gender reveal later next week. I will make sure and share the news next week.
