Today is my daughter Lucy’s due date, and she is already a week old.
Allow me to indulge in some pictures of my beautiful girl.
I am so thankful for this little life. She has already made our family richer. My other children are as much in love with her as her daddy and I are.
She sneezes a lot.
I wonder if it’s allergies or just getting adjusted to the world around her.
It reminds me of the prolific pollen that will descend on us here in East Texas in the spring–the distinct yellow of pine pollen. When I am tempted to be annoyed by it, the Lord reminds me how passionate He is for life, so much so that He has the humble pine tree spread its seed far and wide so that we can have more of these towering, beautiful trees in our natural home.
Being open to new life, like the East Texas soil is to the showering of yellow pixie dust, is not always convenient or pleasant, but it is so worth it.
