meeting macie kate...

I had a surprise visitor at work the other day...


She is seven months old, happy, beautiful, and she has been officially theirs since just before Valentine's Day. And to hold her in my arms, bounce her on my lap and watch her legs wiggle and hear her sweet giggle is pure joy.  It makes me remember the days when my kiddos were that small, and the way you cannot suppress a smile or an out-and-out gale of laughter at their reactions to the world.

But this was not our first meeting... last fall, when I was {thankfully} on an upswing of health, and she was just six weeks old, I got to see this tiny miracle face to face, heart to heart.  Her Mama placed her in my arms and quietly said You prayed her here... and as I was humbly brushing off the statement, I fell more in love holding sweet Macie Kate in my arms.  Who could not?


I was certainly one of many who prayed this little miracle into our lives, into her full-of-faith family.  Together our prayers roared through the heavens, heard.  And I can only imagine that the YES! God had planned was given with a smile and a chorus of angels singing all around Him.  This story, Macie Kate's story, authored by the One who made heaven and earth, is one of the most beautiful love stories I have even been witness to... and it goes on.  It goes on as she grows, as her family grows, as her brave Mommy & Daddy navigate the newness of each and every day.  I am truly amazed by these two... their faith, and their willingness to step out and bare their hearts to this tough world.  But most of all, I am thankful... for the blessing this sweet bundle of joy is to her Mommy & Daddy, her family, and the rest of us who have fallen in love along the way...


i love you, macie kate!!!
