Christmas Eve (12/24/11)
First Born, A Son
After all this time, he’s here,
Your first born, in your arms.
What are your dreams for him?
Will he follow in his father’s footsteps?
How are you going to keep him safe?
Do you wonder what life has in store for him?
Will he live his own life?
Will he become the man he is meant to be?
Find his own way, walk his own path?
Do you have doubts, fears for him?
God gave him to you.
This child shares your vulnerability.
He is imperfect, hardwired to struggle.
Can you love him unconditionally?
Can you let him be himself?
What will he bring to the world?
