Children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children born in one's youth. Blessed are they whose quivers are full. They will never be shamed contending with foes at the gate. ~Psalm 127:3-5

The Beauty of James XAVIER

My sister and her hubby named their first son James Xavier and I was so excited!  I have always loved the name Xavier.

Baby James Xavier (whom I love to call Jax) has two doting older sisters. I'm sure they will take wonderful care of him.  He is very blessed to have been born into the family he was.  His bright eyes and cute little face melt your heart every.single.time. 

Part of the reason for my sister and her hubby giving him that middle name was to honor St. Francis Xavier.  Information on St. Francis Xavier's life can be found here, but to to summarize it: he spent much of his life traveling to many countries, preaching the gospel and converting people to Christianity. James Xavier will hopefully grow up to one day become a servant as St. Francis Xavier did, telling people of God's Word and bringing them to Christ.

Love the fists these cousins are making.  Perhaps they're starting early -            Serve God.... or else!  :-)
