We now have a son, Deacon Clayton:
Not a bad looking critter, all things considered.
We're just, well. It's wonderful. Although wonderful doesn't quite cut it. I now know how much my parents love me and I could never known before. It's so fun to see a PERSON with my little monkey toes and Jenny's lips and who knows what else is who's...it's all Deacon's, though.
This whole experience has given me just a tiny glimpse into the love God has for people. I love Jenny like mad but it is a love from which I receive something in return. That's not (thankfully) always my motivation, but if she does not reciprocate I get upset. Deacon on the other hand is pretty much incapable of reciprocating much at this point. But the love i have for him is no less powerful than the love I have for Jenny. It's entirely different - something I have never experienced before. A love with such depth and no romantic anything in the mix. Whew. And to think God loves us so very much more than this. How great is His love that He would give His only Son.
I cannot get my brain around that.
