Dear Heavenly Father I want to offer you a praise offering for this precious gift. I want to dedicate this baby to you and for your service. I pray you grant me and her mother great grace and wisdom to be the proper parents to raise her in a manner pleasing to you. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
I remember some 35 years ago when Ma Pura, that great woman of God, also known as a prophetess, told me in San Juan, Puerto Rico, I'd have a child born to represent something very special in God's service and her birth would mark an event that I can't recall exactly. I was only about 22 years old at the time and quite overwhelmed by her words. She was quite old, in her 80's perhaps, but Ma Pura died shortly after on the 21st of April. I recall her death because there was something said at the time that was rather significant.
Truly God is a God of second chances. I was young and had my issues when raising my 3 wonderful adult children, but I was never able to forge much of a bond for a myriad of reasons I will take the blame for. But now, here now, God has given me a second chance and I'm so overwhelmed with joy. Thank you Jesus again and again.
If someone would have told me that someday I'd be a father again at my age when I have grandchildren years older than Samey, I'd tell them they're crazy. But, who can say how God directs our lives. To my detractors, pundits, critics and the like I 'd say, three things: 1. Live and Let Live. 2. Who can know the mind of God. and 3. I'm not going to cast my pearls before the swine trying to explain how wonderful this is. To my supporters and true friends, This is the happiest moment in my life, much more than I would have ever thought. To anyone else: Never doubt what God can do in your life. You may have a dream that has died, but revive it and believe in the God of miracles.
In life, never be afraid of reaching out beyond your grasp. Trust God to take care of you never let go of the plow, but stay the course and who knows where God will lead and direct you.
In His Love,
