She’s here! She’s here!

We have been anticipating this little girl’s arrival for what seems like forever… and she’s here!

Meet Emily Rose, the newest addition to our little family. She came into the world in a hurry this Sunday, April 26th, and is so precious to us!

The way God chooses to create life is breathtaking. This person, my Emily, was in my body just this morning, and now I hold her. The miraculousness of new life astounds me as I see and experience it.

 

_D4B6701And despite the fact that I’ve been referring to myself as such for months, I still can’t quite get over the fact that I’m a mom of three now. …Three amazing, beautiful, joy-filled, sweet children.

And I’ve got the minivan to prove it!

My heart’s desire for each of these three little ones is that they would grow to love Jesus, to know God and make Him known with their lives. I pray that His Spirit would dwell in them mightily and His word, abundantly, and that their roots would grow down deeply into the soil of His marvelous love!

What a high calling it is to mother people. Souls. What a weighty yet privileged task!

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Emily Rose! We love you already.

And THANK YOU God for this blessing of new life!

      They almost shared a birthday! That’s fun. It’s also so encouraging to hear you successfully raised a God honouring child. It feels like an almost impossible task most of the time because it’s just too important. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, the minivan was a baby 3 acquisition. I was all in for having it, but it was honestly a slight identity shock. I never saw myself being a 28 year-old, minivan-driving mom of 3! But seriously, these things are amazing in terms of practicality. I emphatically love it. 🙂

      Having these three children, all of them climbing up on my lap together, has to be the richest feeling in the world. God IS so good! Glad to be in the club. 😉
