I looked into her big brown eyes the other day, and this is what I said:
It was worth it…
-Every sleepless night
-Every worrisome day that passed by
-Every phone call that wasn’t our agency
-Every time I closed the nursery door
-Every time I rocked an invisible baby
-Every time I looked at others in envy
-Every journal entry
-Every painful step of hope God led us on
It was all worth it. You are worth it.
And God says the same thing to me. Every day. You were worth it all.
“Thus says the LORD: ‘The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you’.” (Jeremiah 31:2,3)
