The day I found out I was pregnant with my son was also the day before one of my dear friends got married. We gathered together with her family and closest friends, to celebrate the love she and her soon to be husband had found.
After a lovely brunch, she handed out gifts to everyone. I opened up a beautiful print of one of my favorite verses:
"Because of the Lord's Great love, we are not consumed. His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23
Overwhelmed by this thoughtful gift, and touched to be a part of her special day, I made this verse mine and by baby's verse for the rest of our lives.
My husband and I had prayed for this child for close to two years.
-At times we felt overwhelmed with doubt but Lamentations says not consumed!
-During my pregnancy when I felt sick or fearful I would remember His compassions never fail.
- When my baby was born I was overcome with the feeling of God's faithfulness in giving us such a gift.
-And as a mom I can't thank Him enough for mercies new every morning.
No matter how late the night, & how much sleep was been missed something happens in the morning time. Whether its the coffee or a just awakened babe, with sleeps lines on his toddler face--God's mercies truly are new!
