One year in my arms!

It’s been one year since I held my youngest son in my arms for the first time. What a blessed and wonderful year it has been! We had a troublesome road to meet, but through God’s grace our family is complete!
This song is dedicated to my beautiful son!
Mother’s Prayer
Words by Rachel Aldous
Music by John Mandeville
My sweet baby on loan from above. 
No better treasure could I more love. 
I stand here beside your bed as I pray 
Ilay my hand on your head and I say: 
May you grow up to serve Him 
all of your days. 
May He lead you and guide you 
in all of your ways. 
May His hand bless your future with 
friendships that last. 
May you cherish your youth 
and not grow up too fast 
I stare in wonder at your tiny frame. 
Just to think that God knows you by name. 
He knows every hair on your beautiful head. 
He knows your thoughts before they are said. 
May you grow up to serve Him 
all of your days 
May He lead you and guide you 
in all of your ways. 
May His Hand bless your future with 
friendships that last. 
May you cherish your youth 
and not grow up too fast. 
May God grant you peace 
in the midst of a storm. 
May God give you strength even 
when you’re forlorn. 
May you answer the door when 
Jesus comes knocking. 
May wisdom guide when 
your mouth is talking. 
May discretion protect you 
and keep you pure. 
May you never stumble 
or fall for a lure. 
May your heart remain humble 
to the very end. 
May uprightness and truth 
be what you defend. 
May the world not ensnare 
or change who you are. 
May the light that’s within you 
shine like the stars. 
May angels surround you 
body, spirit, mind. 
May favor and peace be yours to find. 
May rejection and pain 
never reach you. 
May your spirit grow bold 
for what you’re called to. 
May you grow up to serve Him 
all of your days 
May He lead you and guide you 
in all of your ways 
May His Hand bless your future with 
friendships that last. 
May you cherish your youth 
and not grow up too fast. 
As you rest in God’s care I will rest, too. 
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you. 
Amen
