To Read on the Journey

Tuesday, March 15, 2011


I wonder if the Spirit whispered in my almost 4 month old curly ear, 
"He's here!" 
on 3/15/74.
I believe He did. 

I am certain that at 
5:15 p.m. 
on March 15th, 1974 
this baby girl 
squealed with delight
"it's a boy!" 
was announced in a hospital room 50 miles away. 

my most-treasured friend, 
the one I would most intimately share my 
and Savior with,
was here. 
 So today
Michael Alexander Jones,
I celebrate you,
and the Author of life 
Who so generously 
 wrote you
for me.

was a very happy day indeed!  
Happy Birthday!!
