There is not a day that goes by that I am not amazed at God's goodness to us. He blesses us in so many ways - both seen and unseen. I look at my children and I realize the blessing of each one. I am still in awe that He brought us a baby. My mind wonders off sometimes dreaming about that day coming soon when we will stand in a court room and have her declared officially ours. I hold her as she drinks her bottle and find myself still amazed that God brought me a baby. I just can't believe that we have a baby now!! What a wonderful God we have.
Our newest little one is busy getting around from place to place. She finds the funniest things on the floor as she explores her new little world. There seems to be a growing discontentment to not be able to get up and run with the rest of the children in the house. She is trying to get up on her feet - and I do not thinking her days of toddling around are too far from here! I find every day with her an absolute joy.
The other kids are enjoying God's gift to our family. She is never without a playmate, a giggle or a squeeze. Babies truly bring out the special parts of life. I was talking to Rob the other day and told him that having the younger kids brought to us through adoption is like dinner with dessert! It is rich and enjoyable - special in every way! Our entire family is enjoying having this precious gift from God. Babies have a way of changing the entire atmosphere of the home. You stop a little more and enjoy the small things in life. There are days I will find myself sitting on the couch just watching her explore; taking to heart the wonderfully complex creation that is sitting before me. Yes, babies are a blessing and an absolutely beautiful creation from the Creator of all things. I am in awe as I look at His gift to us!Trust you are taking time to notice His blessings in your life. What an awesome God we serve!
