Today I felt the sun on my face as I walked my dog along the nature trail by our apartment. I felt the sun touch my skin. I felt God brush my cheek. You’ve got this, my daughter, He seemed to say. You’ve got this, mama, because I’ve got you.
I trust you, Lord. I give myself permission to rest fully into you. I’m okay with not being in control. I’m not afraid. I smile with thankfulness for this opportunity. I relax my shoulders, I unclench my jaw, and fill my lungs with your love. This is what it is to create somebody else. A privilege, the most important work I’ll ever do. To be a mother. A glimpse into His love for us.
