A close friend of ours just gave birth to a precious baby girl. Her name is Quinn Ivory... all babies are great, but baby girls hold a special place in my heart... maybe it is because I am a girly girl. Here is the card I created for her:
A happy hello Baby Quinn!
I just have another thought to share... I just saw a famous person on TV talking about IVF and infertility. What she said was that giving birth to a child is the greatest opportunity to truly touch another human's life. I guess I understand what she means, but it made me think... as a follower of Christ I have an opportunity to truly touch another human's life... if I follow God's calling and share Christ with those I have in my life. This verse came to mind as I was contemplating this:
God makes the childless woman to be a homemaker and a joyful mother of spiritual children.
Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! Psalm 113:9
It has not always been easy to here statements like that, but because I know who I am in Christ Jesus there is freedom from any pain that use to cause me! I praise Him for what He has done in and through me and for what He is going to do!
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
