Newborns amaze me. One day they’re in their mommy’s belly squirming about and the next day they’re born and charming the world. They’re fragile yet resilient. They’re tiny yet powerful. Newborns turn adults on their heads and flip their hearts inside out. And what could be more precious than baby feet? They make my eyes turn into hearts and make me swoon.
Tomorrow we get to meet the newest baby in our extended family, and I know my heart is going to burst when I hold her in my arms. She has been long awaited for, and her birth, her life, is like the first blossom that pops up after a hard winter. It’s the sweetest, most promising sight you’ve ever seen, and you know that a new season of life is here because of it.
I started singing this song as I thought of her and her parents tonight.
You’re a good, good Father
It’s who You are, it’s who You are, it’s who You are
And I am loved by You
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am
Her new little life reminds me that we have a good, good Father- a Father who is for life and redemption and who loves us so much it makes His heart burst.
