Pride and Joy

Tomorrow Douglass 'Ali will be four weeks old! We will be marking this milestone with a little cupcake for mom and dad and bottle of breast milk for the little guy (with a bow on it). Enjoy some recent photos of him doing his thing and the song Pride and Joy. Just click on the link and turn up the volume on your computer.

"The education and training of children is among the most meritorious acts of humankind and draweth down the grace and favour of the All-Merciful, for education is the indispensable foundation of all human excellence and alloweth man to work his way to the heights of abiding glory. If a child be trained from his infancy, he will, through the loving care of the Holy Gardener, drink in the crystal waters of the spirit and of knowledge, like a young tree amid the rilling brooks. And certainly he will gather to himself the bright rays of the Sun of Truth, and through light and heat will grow ever fresh and fair in the garden of life."
(Abdu'l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu'l-Baha, p. 129)
