After a bit of a blogging break, I am back today with Five Minute Friday. The rules are easy; one word...five minutes...no editing. Today's word is Small.
It was a simple text really, only four words long."Here is your grandbaby!" Along with those words my daughter included a picture of her 20 week ultrasound. I have honestly never seen a more beautiful picture in my life. That picture turned my heart to mush and my eyes began to leak. I fell in love with that little face instantly.
This reminds me of my favorite Dr. Seuss quote. A person's a person not matter how small. This little one waving at us in his/her ultrasound picture is a person, a person that I already love so much.
How could a baby I haven't even met yet, cause such profound feelings of love? This little one is truly a little one right now, yet my love for him/her is huge. I have been thinking a lot about Psalm 139,(my favorite Psalm) how God sees us when we are hidden. He doesn't need an ultrasound to see that little baby. He has seen it since it was conceived, He loved it before any of us even knew there was a baby growing there. My prayer for this little one is that he/she will one day understand just how much God loves him/her!
Can't wait to meet you little one...I have so much to tell you...
