Piece of Heaven

Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory  ~Douglass MacArthur

I love this little guy so much!

When I am tired of being sick & tired, of disciplining or pleading with my estrogen americans for the fifty-seventh time to share nicely, I get lost in his little (or big) world and he helps me bring my focus right back to where it should be!

My little piece of Heaven!

  1. Well, finally I get some time home to respond to these most profound reflections of you Marisa through your son. It truly speaks to your wisdom, seeing with spiritual eyes the existence and awe of God’s world in all things. Naturally through your son and at other times through your daughters. I am so lifted by the eyes of your SOUL expressing all they see and experience.Your wholesome and Godly centered intellect captures the essence of all GOD is showing you about HIS awesome power in your most ordinary of lives events and your role as a MOTHER. You are open, humble, obedient, and your wisdom I see shinning through most situations because of your solid and firm conviction with your GOD who is POWER, MIGHT, JUST, MERCIFUL, yet VERY NEAR to those who BELIEVE.You are very BLESSED especially having a HUSBAND who VALUES AND HONORS these attributes in YOU.WELL, HANDSOME LOVE CAPTIVATING SOREN, also is connected to GOD’S POWER for HE is in the World but not of the WORLD!Love, Mom

  2. Wonderful quote by the general and so applicable. He indeed has his own personality. From the same “stock” as his sisters, yet so different and unique! I’m so enjoying witnessing and being part of his development as he expresses his boyhood! Thank you for saying yes to the Lord and bringing little Soren into the world for all of our enjoyment! Love you, Dad
