Can’t Stop

I randomly found this photo by Amelia Lyon a few months ago and have been obsessed with it ever since! Seriously, it’s been on my desktop for the last few months and I cannot stop staring at it.

It has truly captured me.

As we await the birth of our little bundle of joy I can’t help but hope that I’ll look something as beautiful as this new momma. It’s like she knows a secret that I desperately long to not just know, but to understand. I want to gaze upon my baby with that much awe and wonder. To love with more than I know how to contain and yet feel a since of protection and care unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before.

I know technically I’m already a momma, but oh to hold him. To gaze upon him and to know that this baby, this baby is what love has made. What God has made out of my marriage with my husband. I want to know what that is like.

When Cale and I first met being a mom was not the first thing on my radar. It’s not that I didn’t think it was a “cool” job or something I was just focused on other things. But, now that we are here, about to step into parenthood, it’s already been one of the scariest and most beautiful journeys we have embarked on thus far. It may not be climbing mountains or starting a new business, but it’s shaping a life.

Forever.

I heard someone say recently;

“Marriage teaches you about yourself, while parenthood teaches you about God”.

With everything I have learned about myself in our four years of marriage, both the pretty and the ugly, I can’t imagine how much we’ll learn in parenthood. I’m looking forward to the journey.

This song has recently become my prayer for our future as we count down the days (literally) until we meet our baby. I just can’t stop thinking about it’s simple words and how the simple beauty of a moment (the photo above) has captured me forever.

 ”I give it all to you God. Trusting that you’ll make something beautiful out me (us)“.

40 weeks (does this mean I can stop counting?)! :)
