A Year Ago Today

Last year, on March 27th, I found myself sitting on the floor of our bathroom, staring at a stick. Brayden was in my arms, crying for some reason (who knows why), and I was starting to join in with him. For you see, that stick I was staring at was a little smiley face, with the word "pregnant" on it. How humorous of God to have us try so hard to get pregnant with Brayden for close to a year, and then have a miraculous mistake happen with Connor. Ofcourse, Connor is no mistake. God knew my son's days before we had yet to know he would even exist. Such is the miracle of life. I smile thinking how God has intricately woven together the story of our family. Life is an amazing, precious gift. My little Connor man is living breathing proof of that fact.

So this year, on March 27th, I am taking the time to reflect on God's promise that He is enough. That His grace will cover the (many) inadequacies I have as a mom, and that He will provide what I need to get through each and every day. His promises have remained true through this past year as I have many times felt as though I couldn't get through it on my own. And His promises will never fail. Thank you God for the precious gifts that are my sons. May I always hold them lightly, for they were never mine to begin with, but Yours on loan to me and Drew.

 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
         Wonderful are Your works,
         And my soul knows it very well.
Psalm 139:14
