Oh, little boy, my tiny miracle, I love you more than I know how to say. Last night as I was cradling you in my arms, marveling at the wonder of you, I stole a peek at your daddy. He had your baby book open and he was writing a letter to you. I watched him from the dim light of the bedroom as he wrote, and I saw such love on his face. He smiled as he wrote to you. And he cried. Tears of the deepest love and happiness.
He wrote to you of the things he hopes to teach you as you grow. Things of this world, like baseball and meteorology. And things not of this world. Things of God. His love. His mercy. His grace. Because, my little one, we cherish you with all our hearts. But God. God cherishes you with a love so deep, so wide, and so pure, that we can’t imagine the wonder of even just one thread. Revel in that, baby boy. Learn to bask in His presence and His light. Learn to worship at His throne. There is no greater love than His.
