Back when we were waiting upon the Lord for a child, my niece Kaelyn was like my “first child”. She was such a sweetie-pie, ever obliging and teachable, and she brought the family so much joy with her silly antics and cheerful disposition. The 5 years of waiting and waiting…not knowing when exactly our child will come, was made a lot better because of her.
So whenever I see Kaelyn and Ellie interacting these days, I’m brought back to the past, and am reminded again on how sweet God’s faithfulness is. ❤️ Kaelyn is so caring towards Ellie, and Ellie shrieks with excitement each time she sees Kaelyn. It’s super cute.
This was taken at Macs, when they were just chatting and playing. I love it.
The wait is hard, and the infertility journey seems never-ending. Some days, clinging on to hope just seems so impossible. You may get discouraged, get upset and wonder what’s wrong with your body, and get envious of other mums who seem to conceive so easily….it’s alright, I was right there too.
On days when all else fails, I pray you’ll cling on to the unfailing Word of God. Leviticus 26:9 was what I held on to, and I hope it ministers to you too: “I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers and I will keep my covenant with you.”
God’s plans are truly perfect, and His timing – always just right. 🙂
