Pretty soon now, our little Emmerson will make her debut into the world, daughter of Nicholas and Taylor Jordan, granddaughter of Chris and Kristy Leab and Larry and Sharon Jordan, niece of Rocky and Jay Jordan and Chandler Leab, great-granddaughter of. . .well, you get the point. She is one blessed little girl to have a heritage of parents, grandparents, aunt and uncles, great-grandparents and beyond, all who have made Jesus Lord of their lives and who will be praying for her, encouraging, supporting, teaching, and loving her. Here’s a few words I will soon say to her. You can listen in if you like.
“Hey sweetie, you are so beautiful! You are perfect in every way. The first time I laid eyes on you, my heart did a flip. I loved you long before you took your first breath. You have such an amazing future ahead of you. There is so much in you that the world needs. Your precious smile, your wisdom, your gifts and talents, all are going to make the world a better place. The world has been waiting for you to make an appearance. Everyone who knows you will be a better person. You are truly amazing. You are beautiful, smart, kind, wise, and fun, and I love you so much, much more than you can imagine. Whenever you need something, anything at all, please let me know. I will always be here for you and nothing would please me more than to make you smile!”
Don’t you think that one day your Heavenly Father looked at you, as your parents held you for the first time, and said something just like that about you. I am sure he did! And I’m sure if you listen very carefully, you will hear Him say that to you right now. Believe it!
