Marshal James born February 19, 2016…my 7th grandchild.
What an amazingly extraordinary and emotional thing it is to be born unto this world. The beginning of life. Tears flowed at my first sight of this precious little sweetheart. So fragile and helpless. I am instantly in LOVE.
And so it begins…Day 1
We (Marshal’s family) get to protect and guide and love this little guy as long as we can. In a short time he’ll begin to experience some independence and then more and more until the time that he’s on his own. We want to protect him from the difficulties of life but we know that it’s often the hard times that build our strength and character. We also know that he’s going to make up ‘stupid crap’ in his head that just isn’t true. But maybe…just maybe, if we teach him about the power of the world within, and the power of his thinking, he can steer clear of some of that.
So I will teach him to greet each day with love in his heart, to persist until he succeeds and to live each day to the fullest. I will teach him to master his emotions, to laugh at the world, to be of value and to give value. I will teach him to be in action and to know that he is nature’s greatest miracle. I will teach him to be kind and loving to all others and that “In HIM we live and move and have our being”, so always keep God, the universal mind, first and foremost.
I will remind him that he is whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.
And the most powerful way for me to do that is to live it myself. And so I shall.
