Humble Moments

On Monday, I sat on an uncomfortable exam table with tears welling up in my eyes as I watched a tiny heartbeat pulse on a screen. The ultrasound technician lingered and allowed Doug and I to enjoy a sweet moment watching our newest son’s heart beat steadily. In that moment, I felt so small and out of control. Normally the feeling of being out of control terrifies me, but as I watched my tiny baby’s heart beat away I felt overwhelming gratitude that God was sustaining his life, that God made my body to carry him and that Luke’s heart is happily beating. New life is miraculous and humbling.

  1. Praise Yahweh for the gift of bearing children. Thank you for sharing your little blessing…

    Pss 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of יהוה: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

    Yahweh bless
