The Blessing

Filed under: Uncategorized — cabenelson @ 12:17 am

A few weeks ago we had a baby blessing in our church for Wyatt. In our religion the father issues a blessing to the baby during our church services on Sunday. It’s not a set wording that you say or anything (which my nerves would have been a lot more happy about) instead it’s more along the lines of a prayer.

It was a wonderful Sunday and besides being nervous, it went great! Getting baby Wyatt prepared and in his blessing outfit was a fun occasion.

Wyatt was an absolute angel the entire day.

My wife hates this picture… It brings a small smile to my face as it shows the “real life” version of taking pictures.
“I SAID SMILE SON!”

Words can’t express how much love I have for my son. It amazes me how immediate that love was the minute I saw him. Kim and I were talking the other night how we can’t imagine our lives without him and what an amazing change in responsibility this has been.

We are incredibly blessed.

  3. Cabe – These are such beautiful pictures. Thank you for capturing this special time and sharing it with us. I have tears in my eyes just remembering my love for my two sons and what you are talking about.

    You know, I and my sons have always ending our conversations on the phone with “love you very much,” but neither of them could fully understand what depth I had in my heart with these words until their children came along. Now you know how your mother and father feel when they say “I love you.”

  5. Sheila- He really is just so mellow and sweet. We got lucky with this one… we may not get so lucky with the next one 🙂

    Nana- How true that is! There’s nothing like walking into the house after work and just spending time holding Wyatt.

    Kathleen- I can’t believe how immediate and how much love you can have for someone. It really is amazing.

    Sugar! So sweet (get it?) okay that was lame. Do you have a Blog because I can’t see your url anywhere! I’d like to get to know you better!

  6. Cabe – Yes, it is amazing this immediate and strong bond and love with your child. It is the first time I experienced a “selfless love.” And this love never, ever changes. I still feel the same about my grown sons with their children too.

    You know, this was what really helped me become the strong Christian I had always been lacking in. I think of God as “Daddy God (a term a friend uses),” and relate His love for me to my love for my children. This is when I realize what an amazing Father in Heaven I truly have.
