The arrival of a newborn life,
A treasure to behold.
The beginning moments of your time
Have worth tenfold in gold.
You've just begun your very own
Path within this bustling world.
What better place to spend these days
Than feeling warm and gently curled
In the firmly protective and oh, so loving
Arms of Mom and Dad.
Into a family of Kings, you're born!
Being dealt that hand's not bad.
We all welcome you happily,
You're quite a sight to see.
May you now and forever be
A bundle of wonder,
A boy we joyfully call Mordy!
One of my closest friends, Jacobey King, recently helped introduce his son, Mordecai, into the world. I was absolutely delighted for him and his wife, Alexis. I visited them in the hospital just recently and was stricken with awe at this infant, this source of life not only born but a few hours ago. I even had the privilege of holding him, and I felt the warmest and most comforting sensation of energy radiating from him. He was such a peaceful baby. He made no cries, he didn't fuss. He was such a calm and docile baby. As I held him, he only relaxed and dozed sleepily. It was a beautiful moment for me. I can't even imagine how powerfully moving it might be for his parents!
Also, he's already been given a fitting nickname: Mordy.
