Every tiny bud carries the promise of new life...a miracle within itself. Wow! New life!
Yesterday I kept Maylena for a few hours and studied each of her tiny features as I rocked her in my arms. Each tiny fingernail, each delicate eyelash...this remarkable combination of our daughter-in-law and our son... I was in awe; quietly savoring each moment of this precious new life. Did I become weepy...a bit! There's something about holding "miracles" in your hands, watching them with your eyes. Love, thanksgiving, happiness, joy...sheer delight overflows from a heart of gratitude.
What an amazing, wonderful Father God we serve! How amazing that we are the recipients of his generous blessings!
