Mother's Day Moments...

I am so blessed.

I am blessed to be a mommy.  I used to wonder a few years back if I would ever get to type that sentence.  When we were first married, I was naive enough to think that conception, pregnancy, and child-bearing was all in our hands.  I know better now.  After two miscarriages and three losses, one little girl and another on the way, I have learned that each life is a gift direct from God.  After two surgeries and a lot of hormones later, I understand that gratification is much sweeter when seasoned with tears, prayer, and heart cries.  I do not take for granted the blessed dream of a life that I live each day.

I'm so thankful that He has entrusted us with children.

Happy Mother's Day!

I promise you; this picture was not posed.

Isn't she cute?  I love her.  She gives the best hugs.

A little horticulture lesson.

27 weeks! Only 13 left.  Please ignore the flabby arm.  Ugh.  Pregnancy mutates my body, but I love it.

"He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children.  Praise ye the Lord."  -Psalm 113:9

You look lovely!! You are so right -- never take the future for granted. When we are in His hands, so are our one day at a time, sufficient grace is given to us, too.
