Take great joy in the Eternal! His gifts are coming, and they are all your heart desires.
-Psalm 37:4, The Voice translation
So, both Bonnie and Luke (the baby I keep during the week) are sleeping at the same time right now. This is something that almost never happens. I know I should be emptying the dishwasher, or folding laundry, or maybe taking a shower, but instead, I am sitting in Bonnie’s room watching her nap peacefully in her crib, and resisting the urge to pick her up and snuggle.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’ve been so sentimental and emotional lately, specifically when it comes to Bonnie. I simply cannot get over her. I want to grab hold of each moment and put it in a time capsule or something. I don’t know if it’s hormonal, or if this is just the new normal.
Is this how all moms feel all the time?
I am just amazed by her, still.
In the midst of the uncertainty of our futures, as Andrew is about 18 months away from finishing school, and in the midst of my apprehension and excitement over what’s to come when he graduates, and in the midst of us being away from home and separated from family, life is so sweet right now. This season is so, incredibly special. Each time I do feel overcome with worry, or all-out fear over the future, I look at Bonnie. She is completely happy living in the right now. She has absolute trust in me providing for her every need and desire. The faith of a child is really powerful.
And aside from her childlike faith, she is my living, breathing reminder that God holds us in the palm of His hand. He desires to give us good gifts. Now that is powerful.
