Bold, inquisitive, confident…..

I found this today, something I had written when I was pregnant with Micah:

I found this today, something I had written when I was pregnant with Micah:

I hope that baby will know how much we love him/her from day one and grow to love, respect and appreciate us in return. I pray that he/she will be a bold, disciplined, inquisitive, loving, sincere, assured, content/positive and confident person who, alas, will not have to grapple with some of mom’s less attractive character traits (such as negativity!) No matter what though, God knows what He is doing as he creates this little one so I will just trust and fully embrace whoever he is forming baby to be! I’m so thankful that He is control, He is creating this child specifically for us and He knows what we need!!!”

How incredible that though I wrote these words with feeble faith, God was so faithful to answer as Micah is truly all these things. He knew what we needed-what character traits would grow and challenge Rick and I as parents. I pray the same thing for our baby #2…that his/her character would be in our hearts even before his/her arrival. No matter what, we know, even from tangible experience as I attest to in this post, that God is so true and faithful when we call to Him. And each growing baby in the womb is a unique work of art to Him!

    Aren’t journals a blessing? They remind us of where we were at months, years, decades ago!I find, with new babies coming all the time, I don’t have much time top reflect back, but one day I will. And I will be amazed at God’s hand in it all.Love, Jo
