tomorrow…the 25th of January she will be 17 years old. she is 5’9″ tall, a cheerleader, a photographer, a teenager with a messy room….and 17 years ago she came into the world at 3#14oz, not a peep from her, teeny tiny fingers and toes ~ 2 months premature…..who could have ever known? what does God do to us when He gives us a child? i remember bringing our son home from the adoption agency ~ 7 months old, cute fat cheeks, crying in the carseat with his new big sister patting him ~ saying it’s okay you are going to live in our home and i am your big sister. and then there is the oldest ~ we had been told we couldn’t have children after trying for almost five years….and then we were pregnant. and 3 weeks overdue we had the first one ~ a beautiful girl….21″ ; 8’4oz……blue eyes….so what does Man know? God knew best and i am grateful for all three no matter what the difficulties or heartache. none of it compares to what God my Father has gone through for me. blessings and peace.
