Mother's Day

Sunday, May 12, 2013

I wanted to make an eloquent post about what being a Mother means to me, but it wasn't there.  What was there, were three pictures of three beautifully precious girls.  Girls that God has blessed and entrusted to John and myself.  There is no greater job.  There is no greater joy than Parenting the A team.  None.  I have no words how wonderfully but exhausting every single day is with them.  And I wouldn't change it for the world.  I pray my eyes, ears, head, and heart are always in tune to where God leads me in leading them.  
Anna Claire
Anna is of Hebrew origin and the meaning is "God has favored me." 

Claire is of Latin decent and the meaning is "bright." 
My first baby.  My first everything.  Every single thing you do, will be my first.  Nothing in this life compares to you.  You made me a Mama.  My very own good and perfect gift from above (James 1:17).  You, my sweet girl, taught me what true unconditional love feels like.  You are always my little buddy.  My right arm.  My mini-me.  Our families bright and shining star.  I adore and love you to the Heaven's and back times infinity.
Ava Elizabeth
Ava is of Hebrew origin and the meaning is "life." 

Elizabeth is Hebrew decent and the meaning is "God's promise." 
Life and God's promise.  So true.  You, my sweet Ava Liz, taught me how to pray.  God used you to prepare and strengthen me.  He has set you on fire with so much joy.   I prayed for you and God granted me what I asked (1 Samuel 1:27).  You breathe so much life into our family, little Ava E.  Our little light.  I adore and love you to the Heaven's and back times infinity.
Allison Grace
Allison is of German origin and the meaning is "noble, exalted." 

Grace is of Latin decent and the meaning is "favor, blessing." 
Watching God raise you from death to life has strengthened my faith.  There are more life lessons than can be counted that have come flooding out of our journey with you.  You have made me a better Mama.  You have taught me that I can't do it all.  Because of you, I know complete surrender and trust.  I know what it means and feels like to truly Be still and allow God to be God (Psalm 46:10).  I adore and love you to the Heaven's and back times infinity.
