From Small Bump To Sweet Child

On the Feast of the Annunciation today, we also celebrate International Day of the Unborn Child. The Feast of the Annunciation commemorates the day the Lord Jesus Christ became a tiny infant in his mother’s womb. It is a day of celebration and remembrance of the dignity of the unborn. It also a day to remember the millions of unborn children whose lives have been lost to the violence of abortion.
Since the day is dedicated to the child, I thought it would be a good idea to post songs dedicated to the child. And the first song is aptly addressed by Ed Sheeran to the unborn child - Small Bump. 

My favorite dedication to a newborn and part of my set has the lyrics "...less than one minute old". Isn't She Lovely is sung by Stevie Wonder to his newborn daughter Aisha. Managed to find a nice version coupled with another beautiful song that is sometimes also attributed as a similar dedication - Sunshine of My Life.

She is lovely, and He is beautiful. John Lennon dedicated a song to his son Sean - Beautiful Boy. 

Her six-week old baby Millie inpired the lyrics of Amy Grant's Baby Baby. However the song is pictured as a romance song between adults. 

Any of us who have children would definitely have sung them lullabies to put them to sleep. (One of my sisters who put her kids to sleep with "Frosty the Snowman"). I've got a couple of colleagues at work who are new parents, and an important thing for them is to have their child sleeping through at night. Don't we all love to see the Sleeping Child.

A more recent DJ hit has a comforting message for the child. Swedish House Mafia sings Don't You Worry Child.

The message of the day is to respect life in whatever form it may be. Audrey Hepburn, the famous British actress of the 50s and 60s has share some simple wisdom about life. "The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters."
