exactly six months ago today, our lives were forever changed. i remember jon calling me in tears that our sweet girl had made her grand entrance. i was in shock and disbelief-- could this be the day? is this really happening? and now, just six months later, i can't remember life without haven.
Psalm 91 says,
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High,
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." (emphasis, my own)
this is our daughter's namesake, our prayer that she will find her haven in God alone and trust Him with even the tiniest details of her days. we are so blessed by the Giver of good gifts-- especially one sooner-than-expected, babbling, joyous gift in particular. God, you know our hearts better than we know them ourselves. Thank you for so richly blessing us with more than what we knew to ask for.
