Today’s blog challenge from Liv, Laugh, Love is on the topic of faith.
I immediately thought of a conversation I had with my mom while rocking Eleanor in her nursery. I had tears in my eyes looking down at my perfect little girl, and my mom asked me what I was thinking. I couldn’t say anything. That’s when my mom put my feelings perfectly into words…
“Being a mom makes it impossible not to believe in something bigger than yourself.”
And she’s right. The idea that two people can come together to create a new life is just miraculous. It’s impossible for me not to have faith. I gaze into her bright eyes, watch her smack her lips when she’s hungry, feel her grasp my finger in her fist, kiss her tiny little toes, and I’m just amazed.
God is good.
I’ve been entrusted with this little life – a job that I do not take lightly. There are so many joys and challenges ahead of Nora and I, but I have faith that we will get through it together.
