Precious Girl

Our new precious girl holds up tiny brown fingers and counts all the people who love her- naming the multiple brothers and mamas and daddies and aunts and uncles and grandparents. If I'm not listening closely, the little sing-song voice can be mistaken as reciting a nursery rhyme or her ABCs. Her heart is trying to make sense. By God's grace, she knows she is dearly loved. She spent nearly 2 years in a loving home where she was taught of her Father's love and how very precious she is to Him. Children are resilient and God is forever gracious. Without His hope, His redemption, His heart, we could never enter into hard places. He heals. He redeems. He is everything. This year we have an extra stocking hanging from our mantle- monogrammed with this sweet girl's name. And you bet it will be filled with all kinds of sweet treasures tomorrow morning.
