Our Elijah Samuel


Our Elijah Samuel is on my heart tonight.

What do you have in mind for him, Lord? What grand plans do you have in store?

What will you do with his musical talents? His creativity? His imagination? His love of performance?!


I am pondering these things and marveling at the very nature of my boy. He is artistic. He is an actor. He is a dancer. These things are undeniable about him. I look forward 10 years and I can honestly see him on So You Think You Can Dance!! I can see him on the stage. I can see him behind a camera. I can see him writing music, playing music, video editing, taking photographs, and dancing. So so different from his younger brother. Introspective. Thoughtful. Musical genius. :) And not at all interested in mowers and machinery!!!

This week he asked me to teach him to finger knit, like Saraya. So I did! And he did quite well. He is loving learning his letters and sounds. He loves to be read to. He loves to draw. He loves cuddles and kisses and time with Mama. He is precious. :)

And here, for your viewing pleasure, is his first film! He wrote the script, directed the camera work (by Stuart), came up with his own 'special effects' and decided on the music during the editing process. I think it's wonderful! Click here to see "Jack's Adventure"!

And if you would like to leave a comment letting him know what you think of his movie, I'll pass them on to him! :) Enjoy.

I sure adore my Elijah. :) He is one of a kind and I love him just the way he is.

That was great Saminda. Had my two boys riveted. They said "oh no is it finished?" Elijah you are very talented.

Oh my Saminda! How proud you must be. Please tell Elijah that I thoroughly enjoyed his short film. Favorite parts: The way he scooched his toes as he/Jack put on his flip-flops, the way he walked through the jungle, the look he gave when the narrator said he was LOST, and the lovely song he sang to get back home. My oh my what a talented young soul you have in your midst. Looking forward to future releases from him and being able to say, "I knew him when..."
Lovely job. Most definitely a thumbs up!!

Oh wow Elijah! That was fantastic. It was really well thought out and the music really helped to make things more dramatic. I wish you all the very best in your future productions.
I love that Saraya was your assistant and William is your biggest fan. Well done!
