For as long I have had the privilege of knowing and serving with Amanda, she has always shared her deep love of being a mother. And for many years, I have watched her and her husband faithfully ask God to grant their family another addition. We have joined them in these prayers and one Friday evening not long ago, while at our Community Group, Amanda and Wayne Skyped in to share their incredible news. I could barely see the tiny sonogram picture she was holding up, for the tears that were flowing down my cheeks.
What an incredibly wonderful blessing!
What an answer to prayer!
What a gift from God!
Today, I challenge you- just as I know Amanda would- to look deeply into the eyes of your children and see them as the precious treasures that they are- take a moment and lean in to their tiny faces, kiss their cheeks, give them bear hugs, hold their hands, tell them how much you love them. It doesn’t matter if they are 5 or 15! Then, thank God that He has blessed you with such a gift!
And today, while we’re at it- let’s just celebrate that this awesome family of 3 is growing into a fabulous family of 4!
Congratulations Phillips Family!
We rejoice with you!
Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
This sweet girl is going to be the best big sister!
