Glimpses of God's love

Here are just a few pictures of our precious miracle from the Lord.

It's funny.
People always say how much you love your children.
But really, you don't understand the depth of that love until you hold them in your arms.

When I look at my son, I see so many things.
I see God's hand.
I see myself.
I see my husband.
I see a new creation!
I see a miracle.
I see LOVE.
I see wonder.
I see a new, tender, growing heart.

I see so many things.
And I am in awe.
What an experience parenthood is.
I can't believe how much that love grows.

Don't get me wrong...when he was born, I fell in love instantly.
But that love continues to grow, and it seems it grows stronger each day.
I am so excited to see who he turns out to be.

There are no words for this love.
I know it's just a tiny, tiny glimpse of the Lord's love for his children.

But I'm so thankful he allows us to experience it.
What a joy!

Parenthood is an awesome journey.
