Happy Birthday Logan: I Wish You Peace

Today is Logan's birthday.

He came into this world
a year ago today,
birthed in a room full
of joyous celebration
after months of anxious anticipation.

He was born into a circle of love,
to parents and grandparents who adore him,
as it should be.

and all children everywhere
deserve to grow up
taking for granted
abundant love, adequate food,
clean water, shelter from the elements,
a safe and peaceful home.

It has to start
with conscious intent,
with a realization that there is no other,
just pieces of the same Divine
held in separate containers.

We must hold a prayer in our hearts:

Let there be peace on earth
and let it begin with me.

So be it.

Hi Meri
thanks for that lovely blessing-prayer. I just love children's faces, I try to imagine how they will look as they grow up.

Best wishes to your grandson too and his family. He looked a good sized baby.
Happy Days
