New Life


The word prompt for this week's Five Minute Friday is NEW.  Perfect!

Ready.  Set.  Go.

NEW LIFE!

I keep dreaming...of what he or she will-

look like.

smell like.

be like.

Carrying a baby in your womb changes you as a person.  I wonder God's purpose for allowing such a miracle to grow for 9 months within a mother's tummy.  Is it to change the growing baby or change the woman?  I think both. 

Even though I can picture that wonderful baby smell,

feel soft baby skin against my cheeks,  

hear their little cooing,

{since I've birthed 2 other children}...

It is always so NEW!  So special!  

Looking forward to meeting our little blessing any day now.  Stay tuned...

  11. What a beautiful post, Traci. So much to look forward to. I'm amazed at how much God teaches us through children. I don't have any of my own, but I am learning so much just from hearing the hearts of women like you. Congratulations!

  14. Oh, Traci, yes ... always new. :) "Is it to change the growing baby or change the woman?" What a wonderful question, and I think it's both. Nothing in life has changed more more (aside from my salvation) than becoming a mom. :)

  16. Loved your thoughts on pregnancy, especially "I wonder God's purpose for allowing such a miracle to grow for 9 months within a mother's tummy. Is it to change the growing baby or change the woman? I think both." Such wonderful observation! Thanks!

  21. I do believe each pregnancy is different.. just like each child is.. each one a special little blessing in his/her own way. Praying for a safe delivery for you and little one Traci.
