Happy Birthday Finnshallah

25 Jan

Happy 2nd Birthday, little buddy. When you joined us two years ago, we were terrified of you. You seemed so fragile, so not of this world. We wanted you to grow fat and happy and filled with love, in spite of our inexperience.

Now you’re two years old, dabbling occasionally into the “terrible” phase, but mostly just discovering your own will and abilities. We lay awake in the morning and listen to you sing the ABC’s in your crib (R is your favorite letter), laugh when you gasp with delight at the sight of Elmo or a train, and roll our eyes when you resist us by saying “no no no” while shaking your head in exasperation.

We had no idea, not even a smidge,  of how much joy you would bring into our lives. We are smitten.

Hope you enjoyed your train cake!

    Child of wonder, child of grace,
    love comes dancing round your face.
    child of water, child of earth,
    gentle flower come to birth.
    You shall be God’s joyous singer,
    you shall be Life’s joyous song.

    Child of evening, child of night,
    child of morning, child of light.
    Bring the daybreak and the sun,
    God’s own peace when day is done.
    You shall be God’s joyful dancer,
    dance the moon and stars to sleep.

    Child of Dreams and our tomorrows,
    come to share our joys and sorrows.
    Child so helpless and so weak,
    such a power still you speak.
    You shall be God’s loving promise,
    hope of life amid our doubt.
    You shall be God’s joyful prophet,
    voice of life’s resounding shout.
    You shall be God’s joyful singer,
    let your song be lifted high.
    You shall be God’s joyful dancer,
    dance our joy across the sky.

    Happy Birthday our very precious Finn Javier Mason.
