letter to my little one


Dear Baby Mine,


I feel your flutters, your kicks, your persistent reminders that you are anxious to meet your family.  Little hands press against my belly and little kisses assure you that you will be received with much love and anticipation.
Eight more weeks and I'll hold you; a masterpiece still wet from The Painter's handiwork.  Straight from the arms of Heaven into my own.



There's just something so miraculous about holding one who has been so close to Jesus.  I'll kiss you, smell the lingering scent of heaven, and trace the fingerprints of God on your soft skin.  Know this, my little one, that God, the One who forms you, is with you.  He takes great delight in you, he quiets you with his love, he rejoices over you with singing. {Zeph. 3: 17}


You are not an accident.  Never doubt that it's  for God's pleasure you exist and were created.  {Rev. 4: 11}  He loves you with an "everlasting love" {Jeremiah 31: 3}.  God dreamed your life into being.  The plans He has for you are full of wonder, limitless, brimming with hope and good measure {Psalm 139: 13-18, Jeremiah 29:11}.


You are His.  
We will treasure the brief time on this earth God has seen fit to loan you to us.


With a heart full of love and arms restless to hold you,


Your mommy

Oh my how my breath is taken away with such beauty, such precious words. God's gift of life is truly a miracle formed by His hand. You my sweet mommy have filled my heart so much today not only as a mother of two grown children but as a grandmother to four little ones.

Again...absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. Your sweet precious unborn baby is so lucky to have such a wonderful loving mommy such as you!

Hugs,

You have twins! Having twins is such an amazing blessing! I noticed you're considering the name Abel for your baby. That is the name of my 3 year old son. :-)
