Our new baby, Phoenix Arthur, has arrived! I share his birth story in today's episode!
Phoenix's birth announcement poem:
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home
