O God. Praise the Lord. 3 months of refining, learning, being challenged, experiencing a joy I have never known. Loving someone so much it almost hurts. Thats how I feel about my little man. Praise the Lord. You God have helped me through times of sheer exhaustion. Times I had no clue what to do. You have strengthened me thourgh hours of hours of no sleep, painful nursing. God the gift of Alex is unexplainable. I can't explain how much I love being a mommy. Taking care of Alex, singing to him, loving on him, worshipping You with him, these are some of the best things sI have ever done. Watching him smile at me when I read a Bible story to him. when his little hand grasps mine. Watching his eyes get heavy right before he falls asleep. Watching him play with his hands. what a fun age this is. God you have been my rock. My dwelling place. Your word has een my food. I have loved every part of this journey of being a mom. I feel so blessed and so undeserving. getting ready to be in Shawna's wedding brings it all full circle. WE both struggled with trusting God with our deepest desires, and here I am with 3 month Alex in my arms, and her wedding on Sat. Of course It wasn't in our timing. God thank you that your timing is so much better than ours!Not only that but I am in my promised land. I trusted you to stay at home with Alex. That is beyond my wildest dream. Thanks isnot enough. I have so much to be thankful for. O God my cup overflows!
