I Wonder...

Photobucket

I wonder, as she sits there and smiles at me...

Does she realize my view and understanding of perfection is clearer than it ever has been?

Does she realize that God has taught me a deeper beauty about wholeness and contentment?

Does she realize my life is beautiful, it always has been, but it's never been quite this enhanced before?

Does she realize, that she is the stepping stone that God laid before me to guide my path to a place of greater peace and joy than I ever known?

I wonder, does Cayman realize she is fearfully and wonderfully made, exactly how she is?

I will praise You,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
-Pslam 139:14
(New King James Version)

There are no words to even describe my heart when I look at this picture. I remember talking with you on the phone with you for over 2 hours one night when you were pregnant - and how your heart hurt for your baby. You could have taken the easy way out but you didn't you loved Cayman so much and you trusted God... and God has blessed you with this amazing little girl that with her smile she lights up the room... with her laugh your heart just melts... Cayman has taught me so much and she isn't even 2 yet!! This little girl is so loved and that love is what makes her come further then any doctor would have thought she would. Cayman knows she is loved - you can tell by the way she looks at you and Mike and the way she smiles... You can see the love in her eyes! She is so amazing and I can't wait to see what else God has planned for Cayman... it's going to be great things - greater then we have already seen!

Your posts always make my day.
