Welcome, Baby Alexander!

We are rejoicing to here that new baby Hampson has safely and healthily made it into this world. Much love to the Hampson family!

"O Lord my God, shed the light of your love on my child. Keep him safe from all illness and all injury. Enter his tiny soul, and comfort him with your peace and joy. He is too young to speak to me, and to my ears his cries and gurgles are meaningless nonsense... Let him as a child learn the way of your commandments. As an adult let him live the full span of life, serving your kingdom on earth. And finally in his old age, let him die in the sure and certain knowledge of your salvation. I do not ask that he be wealthy, powerful, or famous. Rather I ask that he be poor in spirit, humble in action, and devout in worship. Dear Lord, smile upon him."

~Johann Starck, 1680-1756

The above prayer is at the top of Jenn's blog, and is one I'm going to print out to keep above my kitchen sink.
