It just occured to me when Baby gets born, he won't have a religion.
Whoa. Information overload. How weird is that?
When Baby is born, he will be without a religion. I've never thought of it that way before. I don't know why. It's strange, but I always assumed that Baby will be Christian. But the truth is, he won't be.
We'll take Baby for prayers. We'll try to bring him up with whatever values we gather from the Good Book. But ultimately, Baby will have to make that choice on his own - whether to be a Christian or otherwise. It will be one of the most important decision in his life and unfortunately, one which we cannot make for him. It feels strange in a surreal kind of way, that we have no part in this part of his life.
It is Baby's birthright to worship God. But whether or not he chooses to, has got to come from him when he is able (read: mature enough) to make a conscious decision. Otherwise it would be without meaning.
Man, what a burden that must be. Mae and I can only pray that he does well.
Choose well, my son. *ahem* I always wanted to say that!
