This has been my view everytime I plan to log on and blog.
I love it.
In fact, I'm in love.
I love being a mommy.
I love looking at her and trying to figure out who she looks like more.
I love spending time cuddling her.
I love knowing that this awesome gift from God was given to me to protect and care for.
I love how close me and A are becoming because of it.
I love how she is motivation to conquer the world.
I love how I snap a new photo of her each day and pick out the differences from the day before.
I love how I can hold her to my chest, and she just knows I'm Mama.
The other night Jesus led me into John chapters 15 & 16. I believe He led me there for a few different reasons. He continued to let it ring in my heart, whatsoever I shall ask in my Father's name He will give it to me. It brought me back to before baby L was born, and how I really did want a family. It was something that was hidden in my heart that I had asked for, and God allowed it to become a reality for us. Oh, how He is faithful!
He also showed me another verse that resonated with me, based on the recent events. Jesus was explaining to His disciples that He was going to leave, and that they would experience sorrow when He died, but their sorrow would turn to joy when He rose and lived!
He compares it to a woman who goes into labor and has sorrow, but as soon as the baby is delivered she forgets about the suffering and is filled with joy for the new life that has come into the world! This seems to be the norm for most mommies, as it always seems like no one really tells you how things will be - perhaps we truly forget the pain we endured because we are filled with joy and love as soon as we see the new baby!!
Baby L's birth story was no simple task, but it could have been worse. I was unsure about sharing the story, but after hearing a few of you ask for it - it seems you are interested enough for me to share! So, look forward to seeing that sometime this week :)
So, what do you think?
Any mommies out there relate to this scripture?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
