A Hopeful Bookworm

fullsizerender-8Have you ever pictured your future? Have you ever imagined specific moments that you might have?

This right here, is one of mine.

I have always loved to read. Trips to the library are a part of my favorite memories. I spent hours upon hours in the library, absorbing the stories and soaking up the smell. If you’ve never picked up an old book and smelled it, you don’t know what you’re missing.

But this moment right here, sharing something I love with someone I love, I have pictured thousands of times. My daughter is extra observant, just like her Daddy. She sits and stares at the pages, enthralled with the colors and the flipping of the pages. The moment the book opens, her eyes are locked. And my heart is full.

I always knew & believed that I would be a Mom, and I hoped that it would be like this. I am so grateful that I was able to brave the waters of loss and then get to embark on this new journey.

Whatever “hope” you have this season, if it is a hope that you have prayed for, a hope that you believe God has given you, don’t lose heart. He is a PERFECT Father, and what Dad promises a gift that he does not intend to give?

Pray. Petition. Knock down doors. But do not give up. The same God that rescued His people over and over is the same God who will rescue you.

“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.”  – Exodus 14:13
