The Miracle of Life
Seeing the miracle of life changes you…changes your perspective. I always knew that life is something that God gives us, but I had never FULLY made sense to me as a miracle, until I saw it first hand.
Seeing my baby girl open her eyes for the first time, hearing her cry for the first time. Watching her little chest rise and fall, and knowing that God put that breath in her lungs, I finally understand the miracle of life.
Cadence Caroline Brothers was born Monday, March 22, 2010.
She weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 21 ¼ inches long. At one week, she had already regained her birth weight, was 90th percentile in her height and meeting all her milestones (trust me, it’s a big deal when you’re a dad). She is 4 weeks old today and I can’t believe it. She has my eyes, her mama’s hair color and chin.
Waiting nine months for this little miracle, it’s true what they say: Good things come to those who wait! Our little girl was definitely worth the wait. I can lie with her on my chest for hours, just staring at her. She gazes back at me, as she falls in and out of sleep. She can’t communicate with me through words, but there is a bond, an understanding between us that surpasses words. This deep love that I have for her, she already knows it, I know it. It makes me realize more and more how God the father loves each and every one of his children and wants all of us to be in relationship with Him.
I wouldn’t give up Cadence for the world, and to know that our God gave up his only Son for me. Wow, what a new meaning it has on my life.
Amazing love, how can it be? That you my King would die for me.
Amazing love, I know it’s true. It’s my joy to honor You.
In all I do, let me honor You.
