It is incredible to me that this tree that is so large and has branches that spread out so far draws it strength from a root system so deep, reaching even farther then what is seen.
“let your roots grow down into him and let you lives be built on him. then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” colossians 2:7
it is so easy to say we want to grow or or make a impact in the world around us. but the part that isn’t so easy is developing the root system to be able to actually live out what we say.
i continue to be reminded that any outward impact or growth starts much deeper in the place that i draw my strength and source of life.
i pray that i will develop deep roots in him that spread much deeper and farther then what is ever seen on the outside.
🖤🖤i do a double take when i look at her lately! how can she be three next month? the conversations we have and the compassion she shows make me feel like she’s a threenager, but when i hold her on my shoulder and her head fits by my neck, i feel my baby again and that will never change. she truly brings so much laughter, so much joy, and so much hope to our lives. these terrific twos have been amazing and i’ll enjoy them for these last coming weeks for sure! 🖤🖤#hooeallegra#terrifictwos#myhope#alwaysmybaby@gymboree
It became very clear to me, call it clairvoyant foresight, earlier this year that i have a daughter waiting for me to be her mother. this little girl, my little hope exists right now as a spirit and one day she will be my baby girl. i feel connected to my daughter already and feel her spirit.
and it is because of her i choose to get up everyday and fight, because one day she will need me.
i had a bit of a rough patch tonight, felt lost but her strong fighting spirit saying 'you got this mama' brought me back because the day that i get to hold her precious little self in my arms, i'll know everything was worth it to get to love her.
so i'll smile through my tears, be brave through my fears and remember the time will come when i get to meet my precious girl and give her my everything.
