Right now you are still so small – not even half a pound! Part of me wants to keep you with me like this forever, safe and sound, but that’s not how this works: soon you are going to be in this world and subject to all the wonderful and not-so-wonderful things that come with it. It’s going to be such a wonderful, exciting, and terrifying journey raising you, Little One, and Daddy and I can’t wait.
I pray that you see love in our household everyday, that you see Daddy and I love each other and love you with the love of Jesus.
I pray that you always choose to see the best in people, despite what others may be saying, and that you always have a kind word to offer.
I pray that you always find that you can come to Daddy or me with anything, knowing that we will always be here for you.
I pray that you always find it in your heart to extend grace and mercy.
I pray that you always see people as people, not as their problems.
I pray that you remember that it is okay to make mistakes and to be wrong because that is how we grow and learn.
I pray that you remember that just because you don’t always see God actively working in your life that it doesn’t mean that He isn’t working in the background.
And I pray that you never doubt how much your Daddy and I love you, because it already cannot be put into words how much we do.
You are such a blessing, Little One, and I can’t wait to meet you.
