Today I felt a complete sense of peace....and I wanted to spend part of my day in Church praising God who provided this for me.
We began a series on prayer and I felt challenged by our lesson . Do I pray to God to ask Him to fulfill my needs, or do I pray to honor God and seek a real relationship.
When our children were born I was in complete awe. When Clare was born I had more time to reflect on the miracle that was provided.
It is hard to explain....but as I gazed at perfect toes and fingers, a sweet button nose and eyes that shyly peeked at me today, I knew that I had experienced something transforming. I felt I was touched by the hand of God and I am humbled by the experience.
So today we went back to share the joy of this small bundle that has changed us all....as little as she is.
We feel the blessings of a little life that moves us to a new generation....
They joyful responsibility we all feel to care and nurture this small child.
We reflect that once we were young parents holding our miracle....
....and how this new miracle will continue to change and transform us.
I leave tomorrow to help a very sweet young couple as they bring home their new baby. I will cook, clean and cuddle ( a LOT of cuddling) and hopefully provide enough free time so that Jonathan and Jill can do nothing but continue to enjoy this blessing in their lives.
I am sure I will have lots of pictures to share when I am back. Everyone told me that being a Grandmother is amazing.....I just couldn't imagine it could be as wonderful as this.
