Hayden's Baby blessing
Once upon a time Linz and I only had 1 kid. Little Kennedy. Now our family has tripled in size with 3 kids! Little baby Hayden came into our life on October 1, 2014. He is a sweet little baby that hardly cries and loves to smile and talk to you. On December 7th we brought him before the Lord to give him a blessing in Church. It was a special day for our family. Each child you bless is special and a moment that you always remember.
It’s very interesting as the Father who gets a chance to bless the baby that each time you have certain feelings. It is like you get a glimpse of what Heavenly Father can see for that child. It is a special moment when the heavens open and you know how much love God has for that baby. I’ll try to describe the feelings I had because I won’t be able to remember the exact words that I had.
I felt that Hayden is going to be a good person. That he is going to be the type of person that people could always count on to be kind and gentle. He is going to be the person that people trusted with the feelings and things that they kept inside. He is going to be a person that would bring a calmness and confidence to those around him because he would be quiet and confident. He is going to know who he is in God’s plan and be steady and sure in his obedience never looking back.
Grandpa with Grandkids
We were blessed to have both the Grandfathers there for the blessing. Grandpa Goble flew in from Utah and we spent a day with him. Grandpa Torres is working in Washington DC for a few weeks and was able to make it down for the blessing. It is a wonderful thing to have good grandparents who are willing to touch into their lives.
Lastly I have to say something about Hayden’s mother, my lovely wife, Lindsey. She is such a good mom and loves her kids so much. I love to see her face light up when she sees Hayden smile at her or laugh at her. She is always so worried and concerned for her kids. She wants to give them the very best the world has to offer.
