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!
Happy Due Date Nora!
I feel the same ways about due dates! Two of my living children were born on their due dates! All of my loss due dates are difficult. I am so very very grateful that this date in the future will not be one of mourning.
She’s adorable, God is awesome! Happy due date day Nora Juliet! And the happy mama is glowing too!
She is so beautiful. I know you are all enjoying her to the fullest. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!!
Rejoicing with you! She is so cute in that outfit and you look beautiful as always. I’m amazed when people look good in white jeans 🙂
Haha, the white jeans are actually maternity pants! I l’ll probably be in the maternity clothes for a while 😭
