The Firstborn


Reuben Paul - FamilyReuben, our firstborn turned 10 on January 20, 2016 and we penned a poem (actually prayer) for him.
Our prayer for you and your loved ones is this as well. Read and be blessed.

Reuben Paul, our firstborn, today, you turn ten
and while we have over a myriad things to pen
we’d like you to know that for the first time, when
we held you in our arms, we knew, you were a special gift for us from heaven

As our firstborn, we can most assuredly say, ‘We couldn’t ask for more.’
‘A loving son & a wonderful brother that you are!’, we see as your core
‘An example of loving God, to whom, you desire all men to restore.’
‘Be ye always steadfast looking on God’s firstborn’, we implore.

You remind us each day that, to us, you are the Father’s gift
and in every public address, his Name and his Son you lift
so in the years to come, we pray, God’ Spiritual armor, ye fit
fighting the good fight, keeping the faith and to God’s will, ye submit.

God sent his Firstborn to save all mankind
for this generation was, and is, perverse and ignorantly blind
‘Beware of the pleasures of this world’, our son, ‘that would subtly you entwine’
and run to the Lord and only to him, bind.

Reuben Paul, our firstborn, today you turn ten
and while we have over a myriad things to pen
we’d like you to know that for the first time, when
we held you in our arms, we knew, your were God’s gift for us and to all from heaven.
