This is Jacob with Emma the day she came home from the hospital. He has the love of Christ shining through him when it comes to his little sister.
How you ask...well tonight he wasn't feeling well. He'd came out of his bedroom about 9:45 red faced, all blotchy from crying. I asked him what was wrong and he said his stomach hurt and he felt like he was going to get sick. I took him to the bathroom, wiped his face down, made sure he wasn't going to get sick right then, grabbed the trash can took it to his room, then he asked if he could lay on the couch, when it was determined Daddy would be running to the shoppette (like a convience store) for some sprite.
Emma was fussing and he asked if he could hold her. I told him, "No, because if you are really sick I don't want Emma to get it too." He said ok and continued to lay there quietly. A few minutes later I'm on the floor changing Emma's diaper and he tells me "You know Mom, I love Emma more than I feel sorry for myself". I was of course a little taken back and said "really, how's that" and he replied "well I love Emma so much and I don't want her to get sick, she shouldn't ever have to feel like this".
Let me tell you...this little boy is smart, handsome, and so compassionate. He shines Jesus's Love. I strive to be so loving and compassionate as he is to his baby sister! What a precious moment and he shared it with me!!! Oh what a blessing he is to our family! What a testimony he is to Christ! That little boy DOES love Jesus and it shows!
Just some pictures of Jacob and Emma...the love he has for her is already so intense! What a blessing, what a blessing!
