FLAMES and GAMES

He is my son. He is a human. He has a heartbeat. He has a soul. He has a sinful nature. He already bears my name: James Walker Thompson V. He already has my prayers, my thoughts, my heart. 



I was giddy watching him dance in mama's belly. It was incredible. Read Sara's account of our gender-revealing day here. At the end of June we will finally let him come out of his womb and play.

Blessed is the name of YHWH. He gives life and He takes away [1 Sam 2.6, Job 1.21].

Congratulations. What a blessing. Even at 4 in the morning when they will not sleep. If you can get the 4-D ultrasound. Its kinda creepy at first but still the most amazing thing you have ever seen, well until the child is born.

Again congratulations

Jake
