This is a totally “mom” photo.
I had brief emotional moment at the kids’ annual physicals yesterday as the pediatrician declared them all healthy.
How incredible is that?!!!
I wanted to whoop, dance, and holler all at once but settled for a picture, one for which John was non-too-thrilled to pose. What an amazing thing to behold, this stark examination table lined with blue bath towel and three squirming miracles.
After all that we’ve been through, it’s incredible to me that some days pass without a thought to the gaping wounds we’d once experienced daily. The full impact of the miraculous-ness of their existence often takes my breath away, and I find myself in complete awe of the God Who has healed them. To think that each one of them nearly died but now lives, physically strong and running around the yard with smiles and sunshine.
O Father, thank You!
We celebrated the good report at IKEA with chicken meatball platters and chocolate cake. I bought two desks, one for myself, the other for Christian. I hope to sit at mine often, writing posts about these sweet gifts and the Awesome God Who’s allowed me the privilege to be their mother.
Please help me, Lord, to steward these three peas wisely and well. May I trust You to carry and keep them, both today – and beyond.
