Life is Precious

She had been put on bedrest till her due date.

               The doctor said, no stress, till baby comes.
                         But on this special day, he gave special permission. 
                                    Her day . . . their day!
The joy on her face. . .
                            The excitement in her voice. . .
                                             The energy in her walk. . .

It was a day to celebrate the joy of life. . .
                          A day to show our support 
                                                    and love to the momma-to-be.
 And to this little one. . .  
I'm going to be a great aunt. once again, but she will be the first on my side of the family.
To rejoice in new life!  
 Pink was the color of the day!  
In the decorations, the cake, the presents!
 Already, preparations were being made for this little girl!                                This little life, not yet born, but forthcoming. 
Already, she's a precious life, to her parents and family,
                To extended friends and loved ones. 

Most importantly, to her Creator.
              To all, she is a princess. .
                   To the King, she is a member of His Royal family! 

     Already, she has a name. . .                  Cards were presented, with congratulations and love.
 Gifts were opened.Sweet, girl-y things were shared. 
The waiting is almost over. The anticipation has been intense at times, especially lately.  
 Only 7 weeks to go (or maybe sooner) and another little life will enter the world!

                                        Then we will say . . . 
Oh, how precious life is.
                  Even before she leaves the safe and comfortable womb,
                                   she is adored, embraced, and loved! 

 That is how our Lord sees each of us. . .

                  We are all precious to Him!!! 
                                  Thanks be to God, our Lord and Saviour!!! 

Giving thanks today, as I continue to count my blessings, and joining others at  "Multitude on Mondays"

  1. Dear Ann
    What a blessing it is to be expecting parents! I pray that everything will go fine with the rest of your pregnancy and that your big day will be easy!
    Blessings to you and your little princess

    1. Actually, it's my niece who's expecting, but it truly is a blessing, Mia! Thanks for your prayers and wishes!

  2. What a beautiful shower and kind doctor to grant permission to celebrate! Those cupcakes look yummy, too.

    May the Lord grant your niece and Ellie protection and health for the remainder of the pregnancy. May Ellie's birth be at just the right time and free of complications. May her life be accompanied by the joy and love her birth brings.
