He’s Here

What's up
It doesn't quite seem possible and at the same time I can't remember life without him.

He's Here. In My Arms. Safe. Alive. Breathing. Nursing. Pooping. Peeing. Growing. Grunting and Cooing. Wearing his clothes. Sleeping on my tummy. Making his Daddy fall madly in love with him. Meeting his brothers. Keeping us up at night. Making all our dreams come true. Filling our hearts with love. and Gratitude. 

So Much Gratitude. all the things Joshua never did, seem like miracles now.

Jeremiah Asher McKeeman

born three weeks early at 5:53 on September 7, 2010. brought into the world through an emergency c-section in the midst of circumstances that threatened both our lives… 

but Thank God He's Here! nestled on me while I pray for a life together – a life spent teaching him, loving him, helping him grow, learning to be the mother he needs… 

He's Here, Healing my Heart. 

I don't know why God didn't let my Joshua stay with me but I am so thankful He has given me Jeremiah.

The recovery has been difficult, but as I spend time healing physically I see that I don't want to just heal emotionally, I want to be transformed. Transformation that comes from walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Transformation that brings true life to every beautiful moment in this journey. Transformation that teaches me how to love and nurture these precious gifts God has given, my children.

Jeremiah means sent by God

McKeeman means he has been entrusted to our family

and Asher is the part of his name that brings the tears fast and full

      and provide for those who grieve in Zion— 
       to bestow on them a crown of beauty 
       instead of ashes, 
       the oil of gladness 
       instead of mourning, 
       a garment of praise 
       instead of a spirit of despair. 
       They will be called oaks of righteousness, 
       a planting of the LORD 
       for the display of his splendor.

       Isaiah 61:3

  • Rita - Sharon, Jeremiah is a precious baby boy. Blessings to your family. Years ago my Dad was concerned about the “valley of the shadow of death” until he heard our young minister talk about that one Sunday…his point being that to have a shadow you MUST HAVE LIGHT…that settled my Father and gave him such comfort….I pray comfort and sweet joyful days for you….Rita
