letters to jackson

I started writing to Jackson after a 20 week ultrasound that changed everything and nothing. It taught us that every beginning has a thousand beginnings hidden away inside it. These are some of those letters.

dear jackson: when it has been 20 weeks

dear jackson: what i am waiting for

dear jackson: it will be better

dear jackson: the gift of breath

dear jackson: you show me Jesus

dear jackson: about your dad’s second book

dear jackson: the work on the ground

dear jack: one

dear jackson: on daring, and prayer

 

There is so much you can never write down. These are just glimpses, snapshots, but they tell a story of glory. And I’m so grateful.

But now he can grab leaves off the ground and run away from you while trying to eat them!
