Last year, on this very day, I wrote This Post about the difficulty of waiting. About longing.
I didn't even suspect that--fast-forwarding into the future a year--I would have those feelings again.
I never imagined what would have transpired in the past year.
But it doesn't really matter, because I wouldn't have believed you if you had told me anyways.
I have mentioned before that sometimes I like to go back through old posts to see where I was in years past.
It's a reminder of the power of the written word.
Of personal growth.
And of the faithfulness of God.
This prayer was on my heart a year ago and somehow, God knew I would need the reminder of these words-- Right now. today. where I sit.
And I am so thankful for the small reminders in our lives.
"Father, thank you. Thank you for loving my child more than even I could comprehend (and I am Mommy, after all). Thank you for pursuing your favorite one with so much zeal, as to send two unsuspecting Americans from halfway around the world. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your redeeming love. Thank you for directing our path and guiding our steps. Thank you for loving me so completely. Thank you for trusting me with your most precious creation. Thank you for telling me that I am your most precious creation, too. Thank you for teaching me to wait on you... as I wait for my child. I will forever be humbled, and honored to understand how desperately you pursue your children with love and comfort. I pray that I will always be an example of You to the world. Comfort, protect, and watch over my baby until I can get there...Amen and amen."
Clane in charge.
