|One day old Micah - 16th October 2012|
5 months ago today, Micah was born to us at 06:00hrs, making us very proud parents. He was small, he was young, fragile, he was innocent and yet very active and very adorable. We were so grateful for the gift that was bestowed on us on that blessed day we will live to remember and be thankful for. We instantly fell in love with him even though another part of us was scared and uneasy that this little delicate human being was in every way depending on us to be providers and good parents to him and we were so determined to be the best parents we could be even though we knew very little about what that entailed being first time parents. We had picked his name which means ‘Who is like Yahweh’, several months before he was born.

By Yahweh’s grace, he has always been an easy child, he rarely cries, he is very friendly and extremely lovable. It’s been a journey of learning, mistakes, uncertainty, joy, patience and so much happiness. Micah brought a lot of happiness into our lives. He is Yahweh’s perfect gift to us. Seeing him accomplish his milestones is so fulfilling and rewarding. Seeing the once frail baby discover his hands, chomp on his fingers and palm, kick and play with his feet, roll, sit, babble and sing in his own language is just so warming to us. When he laughs and smiles you can’t help but reciprocate, it’s so contagious and heartwarming.
Yes being parents comes with a lot of responsibilities and it can be a bit tiring but rewarding; the middle of the night changing and feedings, the under five clinics, establishing good nap and sleep time routines, the pain to see your little one in pain (after injections), etc but Yahweh has been very faithful in providing us with a network of knowledgeable and experienced people in this regard who are always on hand to help and advise. The last 5 months have been a great period of change upon change as the newborn grows and progresses to where he is now. We give Yahweh the glory.

In a world full of pain, uncertainty, suffering, hunger, hatred, sin, etc, we have a lot to be thankful for. We are grateful for what Yahweh has done in our lives and for what He has shown us through the miracle he granted us-our lovely baby boy.
Micah as you turn 5 months old today, we choose to give Yahweh the glory for your life, we choose to thank Him for showing us how faithful and mighty He is through you, we choose to acknowledge Him as Yahweh Ebenezer-The God who has brought us this far. We choose to thank Him for showing us that no matter how complete and fulfilling our lives may seem, He alone has the ability to show us that He always wants to bless us in an even mightier way and we will be eternally grateful to Him for having given you to us our dear boy.

May He continue to show Himself strong in our lives and may He help you to grow up in His way and to teach you more about Himself as you grow. May He give us the wisdom necessary to bring you up in a way that is pleasing in His eyes, may He help us with the nurturing tools necessary to help you live up to your name so that the world may indeed ask, “WHO IS LIKE YAHWEH”

We continue to pray for you each day as you grow older. May Yahweh show Himself mighty through you, may He set you apart for His will, may you grow up to one day declare – How great is our God! May you always know His love, joy, justice, peace, foundation, strength, power, beauty and understanding. Micah, thank you for filling our lives with so much joy, laughter, happiness and so much learning. Its good to see Yahweh’s beauty revealed to us through you.
Loving you always,
Mom and Dad
