A Thanksgiving Reflection
It’s been some time since I have published a post. Our little bundle of love is a month old and has been the most amazing thing that has happened to our lives. There is plenty to blog about and share with the world and I have been definitely been writing it all down. I will share it at some point but right now we are so focused on pouring our lives into this little guy and each other. The house is quiet and I sit in the rocking chair holding my sweet little boy. Cuddling him in my arms and staring at his face and taking in all his tiny features. Watching his chest rise and fall, imagining the sound of his beating heart like we heard so many times when he was in my belly. I sit here breathing in his little baby scent and I am so in love. Beyond the love, bigger than this love, something more stirs inside of me. It is the sheer amazement of the God we serve. For two years Hubbz and I prayed for a baby. We prayed for a sweet little one that we could call our own. Through our infertility journey, we turned to God-led medicine and science to help our miracle along. In God’s perfect timing he granted us our hearts desire. I am in awe.
For this child I have prayed and the Lord has given me that which I asked of him.
1 Samuel 1:27
I feel a hot tear leak out of my eyehole and start to run down my cheek. A tear that symbolizes joy. This God we serve and the things he is capable of leave me astounded. This is the human God picked just for us. This is the little life that we prayed for. This is the little boy God entrusted us with. A tiny human He knit together in my womb but knew all about long before He created the world. On that beautiful fall day in October, God’s love came down from Heaven and he placed a miracle in our arms.
This Thanksgiving we reflect with hearts full of gratitude. We think back to a year ago and how far our story has come. All of the things that have changed and all of the things that stay the same. The hurts that have been healed and the joys God has given life to. The God we serve is mighty and He works all things for good for those who love Jesus.
With a heart so full, I wish you more blessings in your life than you can ask for and very Happy Thanksgiving Week!
