I sat at my desk and wrote a card to my mom for her birthday. After thoughtful words were written, I mindlessly signed the names I’ve signed for the last five and a half years: “With Love, Mike and Brandee.”
But this time, God filled my mind with an impressionable message: someone’s missing. It caught me by surprise but I couldn’t ignore its meaning. Is our family incomplete? Is it not supposed to be just the two of us anymore?
OK, this was a big deal – and might I mention – a deal outside of our previous plans to wait another year. I couldn’t tell Mike the details right away, but when I saw him the next day, he shared a strange dream he had. About what? Oh, just about us having a BABY.
Ever get the idea God is trying to tell you something?
So we prayed about it and decided to wait a few more months…and then three weeks later, we were pregnant. I’m thankful God’s plans always prevail. And now we wait joyously for the arrival of our baby in mid June!!
Dear baby, As your life begins May your eyes be opened to the grace of God. May you know Him, even now, As the Creator who came to give you life. Oh sweet baby, we love you, Just as He created you. His hand covers your life, Look to Him for purpose. For He created you with divine wisdom. And this we know for sure is true, That sweet baby, someone was missing, And that someone was you.
We can’t wait to meet you, baby!!
