Heaven on Earth

Last night, on his 2 week birthday, I finally got to hold my sweet baby boy. I don't know a lot about Heaven, but I know it will be glorious, and that was how last night felt. Glorious. 2 sweet, blissful hours of holding my son, singing to him, thanking Jesus that He had preserved this small child and sustained him through so much.

The David Crowder band has a song, "Glorious". Some of the words are:
"You make everything glorious, You make everything glorious, You make everything glorious, and I am Your's, what does that make me?"

My little boy is truly glorious ~ a miracle and my hero. I praise God for each day He has blessed us with this special little blessing, and the wonderful people He has brought into our lives because of Jethro's heart. We have seen His care and provision in mighty ways this last 2 weeks, and we lift our hands to Him and say, "You are glorious!"

I added a prayer request in the afternoon, to yesterday's post, but I will repeat it here.
**Jethro has developed a clot above the Tricuspid patch. They placed him on blood thinner to try and encourage his body to absorb the clot. He's too little for "clot buster" meds. This morning, the Dr told us that Jethro appears to be at least somewhat resistant to the blood thinner. They don't know why. So, please continue praying that the blood thinner will work, and that his body will just absorb this clot. If it comes loose, it would go to his brain, which would be a very bad thing.

Thanks so much. You are all dear to my heart.


  1. Aww.. I'm so happy for you that you got to hold him! He is the sweetest little baby! I will pray for him!

  2. I've looked at that picture several times and it makes me teary each time. Holding Jethro must be glorious, I know that watching you walk through this ordeal has made me hold Asa (5 months) tighter and longer than before. Thank you for making me realize how precious these little ones are moreso than I did before.

    Our littles say a prayer that makes me think of Jethro.

    Dear Father hear and bless thy beasts and singing birds,
    And guard with tenderness small things that have no words.

  3. I'm with Mrs. G...I get teary every time I see your picture. Truly a gift!

    Praying for the blood clot as well.

    Lots of love,

  4. Praying for your baby. May God help you to be strong for him!!
