Bubba Jones


The night before Bubba Jones was born, there was the most incredible thunder storm I had ever heard or witnessed. The thunder was so loud and so low that it awoke not only us but it set off all of the car alarms in the neighborhood. It kept an anxiuous mother to be (again), awake most of the night. I listened to the beautiful sounds of Gods blessings. The weather was miserable the enitre day that he was born. It even snow that September 22nd. The day of his birth was not only the first day of fall but it was also the start of Rosh Hashanah and the anniversary of Joseph Smith recieving the Gold Plate from Moroni. I can't help but think that the storm was Heaven was of ushering in the birth of my son.
We just celebrated his 3rd birthday. He is a testimony of miracles. He is a joy to our lives and we would not be complete without him.
Born at the Right time
By Paul Simon
Down among the reeds and rushes
A baby boy was found
His eyes as clear as centuries
His silky hair was brown
Never been lonely
Never been lied to
Never had to scuffle in fear
Nothing denied to
Born at the instant
The church bells chime
And the whole world whispering
Born at the right time
....
Too many people on the bus from the airport
Too many holes in the crust of the earth
The planet groans
Every time it registers another birth
....
Born at the instant
The church bells chime
And the whole world whispering
Born at the right time
