The miracle of life that happens in the holy delivery room still has me in awe. Life brought forth - in creation with God and my best friend. A baby who breathed and cried! Safety and good health for both mommy and baby. Transferring from delivery to mommy baby floor. Then leaving the hospital WITH my baby. I am familiar and know so many others who have left without their baby. Mothers who have left without their uterus. Lives changed with the complete unexpected happening. I can hardly walk through these first days of new life with Goldie without thinking about where we have been and where so many of my You Made Me Mom friends have been/currently are. Our perspective forever changed and I am grateful for our story of life, loss and our great Savior who sacrificed and reigns. Goldie doesn't replace our losses in any way but certainly feels like a kiss on the forehead from our Lord.
Lord, Thank you for this life. I see your fingerprints all over my life and I can't believe the gifts you've entrusted me with. Use my life to reflect your Light which consistently points back to you. Let Goldie know you and trust her life with you. Amen.
