  1. Emily,

    Keep writing, girl! While this mothering role is still so fresh and your emotions still so raw. He has so much for you to *See* in this process of adjusting to this newness…so much of His heart He wants you to know more fully. It’s an amazing gift–how we think having a child is about parenting and giving, and yet it’s about Him fathering us and growing us. How He uses a child…it’s incredible.

    Praying you rich blessings as He continues to speak to your heart through the child that He’s grown in you.

  2. Isn’t it just amazing how something so small can have so much meaning and can teach us so much? My teachers are 5 and 5 months. Welcome to this journey!

    I think you’re right about relaxing into God’s grace. We think that we have some role or control over what we want and need. Thanks for your insight into being a child of God.

  3. This is beautiful, Emily. Keep your heart open to His teachings. Believe it or not, one day your daughter may speak words of wisdom directly to you, from God’s own heart. I have had the experience of hearing the wisdom of a child, from their innocent faith and belief, speak straight to my heart. Motherhood is an amazing journey. We are always learning.

  4. Being a mother is the most precious gift God can ever give us. My babies are now 14 and 20. I thank God for allowing me the privilege of this continuing journey. As I read your words, I yearn to be held in His arms, to lay my head upon his chest, to feel his touch against my cheek. If I’m still enough, I can feel it. Oh how glorious, to be a daughter of Christ.
