For some reason, the due dates of my children always end up burned into my memory. Even my living children; I sometimes get their birthdays mixed up with their due dates. The due dates of my lost babies, they are hard to get through. They are reminders of the special people I love so much but don’t get to have in this life. March 19th, June 15th and July 2nd…my sweet babies who never took a breath. Today is such a day of rejoicing, though. Nora’s due date is today, August 3rd, and instead of mourning and begging God to just get me through the day, I get to spend the day cuddling her, breastfeeding her and putting cute girly clothes on her. Thank you, Lord! I just can’t seem to be able to stop rejoicing in this tiny life that I’ve been given.
Jeremiah 31:13 I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them and give them gladness for sorrow.
Psalm 100:5 For the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations!
