Listen to all the music of trumpets,
of harps, of lutes.
With harmony they announce a joyous birth.
Her namesake a river whose banks
of fertile soil caress the ripples of its
vital waters. Her life full of wonder,
to flow endlessly, yet willingly,
into larger seas with unknown boundaries
and infinite depths.
For as the river flows out from the wilderness,
so from our bodies her life began;
with love and hope,
our angelic daughter, Jordan.
