Jonah is One Month Old!

I cannot believe it was one month ago that Jonah entered into our lives. It seems like we have known him for a lot longer than that. He has already taught me so much about life and God. I often wonder if he has taught me more than I have taught him to this point. I am wondering if that ratio will ever reverse itself. One of the things that crossed my mind the other day was when he was fussing and carrying on when he was supposed to be sleeping. So I watched him from a distance to make sure everything was okay. He kept carrying on and started to cry as if the whole world were coming to an end. Little did he know his dad was right there making sure everything was alright. I think he is a lot like me in that I fuss and whine and act like an immature infant at times when all the while God is looking over me making sure I am safe. When I am looking over Jonah as he is sleeping there is not a thing in the world that could hurt him without getting past me first. It makes me wonder why I make so much of a fuss before God at times in my own immature way when all I really need to do is realize He is watching over me and that everything is going to be alright.

  1. This blog entry got a shout-out in my sermon last night, Matt. The worship leader led “Blessed Jesus Hold My Hand” to lead into the sermon. I commented on how that song is us singing a prayer to God that He does indeed answer. And then I told the story you told, with the obvious correlation to our relationship with God. You should have seen the “A Ha!” expressions on their faces when they realized the point of the story.

    Thanks for sharing that. It was a blessing to me & your readers, and who knows how many other church families.
