Chance comes home

I was blessed to be able to stay in the hospital with my wife from the time she went into labor to when she was discharged.   I will not capture those 57 hour in paragraphs but that wonderful experience will be capture in video and photographs at a later time.  At this time I want to focus on when we came home from the hospital and I had a moment alone with my son Chance.  Besides the background sounds of children laughing and have fun outside in our neighborhood, behind the closed windows and doors of our home there was no noise.  My son and I laid side by side, he was so calm and poised.  I stared at Chance as he slept.  They say take a picture it last longer but the image of this precious moment in my photographic memory will last forever.    Surely it was an O.M.G moment when Chance slowly opened his beedie eyes and smiled. In the hospital my wife’s friend Jennyifer had asked did I cry when Chance was born?  I replied no but in my o.m.g moment I cried tears of joy.  As I gazed into Chances eyes in complete admiration, I thought how long I had hoped and prayed for God to bless me with a child.  Hope deferred makes the heart sick but a longing fulfilled is like  cold water in a hot and dry dessert.  My longing fulfilled,… my dream was realized.

moment 4 life

God you are glorified!!

My son was right before my eyes, side by side looking into each others eyes.  I was mesmerized and falling deep in love with my child.  I sensed a greater love for God.  I also sensed and beheld another level of respect and love for my wife.  My God you are glorified right now and forever.  I love you in all your ways.  My God I am in awe how you have divinely design such a strong, magnificent bond between yourself, man, woman and child.

Today is march 27th, 2011.  My wife Michaelle Smith is 37 weeks pregnant with my first son Chance Amir Smith.  We are expecting Chance Amir Smith to be born on April 17th, 2011.  I have decided to blog about my experience with my first child.  I will begin with the meaning and reason of his name.  Chance is opportunity.  Chance is possibility.  Chance in essence is faith.  Amir means proclaimed and powerful.  Smith is simply an excellent breed passed on from my ambitious grandfather.   The reason I named him chance is because on March of the year 2000 in my son’s name Chance whom I looked forward in faith of having as my child in the future.  I took a chance in other words a step of faith to follow Jesus Christ.  In my 11 years of walking in faith I’ve sought God’s kingdom and righteousness in other words, His word, thoughts and way.  Now I am established on God’s word.  Michaelle and I are building our investors club and financial movement on the foundation of God’s word to become financially established.  Therefore when Chance is born, as he grows older, he will be taught the way of God’s kingdom and righteousness.  Surely he will not have to be socially influenced or force to choose the way of the world or the American system which is to 1st seek after money, education, houses, cars, and material possessions.
