Tiny Miracles 4/27/2008

Our little Asher is due in about two weeks. It’s hard to imagine exactly all that will transpire in the next few weeks, though, I do have an idea. Bringing a baby into the world is a great emotional and spiritual experience. There is nothing like carrying and protecting a baby in your womb for nine months, laboring to give birth for 20+ hours, and than having a tiny miracle--forever.

The thought of bringing a child into the world makes me very emotional. I remember when I was pregnant with Brooklynn, crying in my rocking chair while listening to Celine Dion’s Miracle CD, and being so overwhelmed and nervous to bring such a tiny and fragile life into this chaotic world. Suddenly everything that I would never want for my child to see or experience filled my mind and I sat there wondering. . . is it worth it? And is it worth it to have more than one child to worry about and pray for every night--and lose lots of sleep over the next coming years? But luckily, the trade-off is an enormous amount of unexplainable love that occurs that is nothing like anything ever felt before, and then you realize that having a child of your own is just one more gift that God has given us, which is ours to cherish and nurture. It’s an endless cycle of giving and receiving. Nothing compares to the blessing of children.


“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
