Some days are easier than others. And on those long days it's even more important to hunt for His gifts. He is always a good Giver- some days it's easier to see! Sweet Elizabeth reached 1 month on Sunday. It has been a joy to watch her grow these past four weeks- crazy how much they change!
when all she wants to do is be held- it's easy to focus on all I've given up to be mama to a small one again. the long hours of productivity, the ease of getting through a day, a full nights' rest... but God wants me to focus on Himself, gaze in His eyes, and open my hands to receive His gifts:
7551. Jesus carrying me as I hold this baby
7552. Your Word that gives life
7553. Joseph's words of blessing to his brothers
7554. snacks you can eat with one hand
7555. finally being able to put her down for a nap.
7556. getting some work done on the newsletter
7557. her wild woman hair
7558. the soft spot to nestle into her neck
7559. her tiny fingers and toes
7560. her sweet rosebud lips
7561. her blueberry eyes
7562. this tiny person, handcrafted by God
7563. here. this place I can worship You.
