Liam is Born

Life is precious. It is valuable. It is worth every moment. This moment, or rather series of moments, is the third most impactful and important moment of my life.

The first was when I first knew of God’s love and trusted in Him as my King and Redeemer. I was finally truly alive. The second was marrying my wife, Kelcie. Our two formerly separate lives were bound together as one. This is the third. It was the first time I experienced the forming of new physical human life. Yes, I’ve known pregnant women and have been around many babies and have even visited family just after their delivery. None of them compare to this though. This is different. He is mine and my wife’s son. He is made up of me. This is miraculous.

Life often boggles my mind. I don’t fully comprehend it and doubt I ever will. I understand many things, but I am never running low on curiosity. One thing I do know is the undeniable and irrefutably intrinsic value of human life. I am so honored to have been given the gift of a son. I am so humbled that I have been entrusted with his life. I will be held responsible for the the growth of my son into adulthood. This is scary. This is exciting. He is my son and I am his father.

Psalm 139:13-16
