38 Weeks - It's been 9 months tomorrow

9 months since I held you 
in my arms for the first and last time here on this earth.

Your baby brother Sam 
has been much gentler on mommy's belly than you were ;)
Still, I was so grateful for every move you made!
Mommy always knew you were alive and well;
each kick, jab and belly roll...tiny blessings 
from the biggest soul I have ever known.
We miss you so very much baby girl.

It has been raining a lot here lately. 
Just like last year at this time, when you were safe in my tummy.
I think of you each time it rains and I smile 
knowing where you are 
there are no more tears,
no cloudy days,
only His glorious light.

Love you sweet girl!


Psalm 139
written with love for all 
and for you, sweet Amelia Grace

 7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
   Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
   if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
   if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
   your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
   and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
   the night will shine like the day,
   for darkness is as light to you.
 13 For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
   How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
   they would outnumber the grains of sand—
   when I awake, I am still with you.

Time goes by so fast and so slow at the same time. Both fast and slow seem painful when it comes to our babies. I cannot believe it's been almost 10 months. Thank you for sharing Amelia with us. love you!

You always have the most perfect and profound way of stating things!

Been thinking of you so much this month and sweet Amelia as well! Have you ever heard the song, "there's holes in the floor to heaven" ? I know its about a grandmother but I like the chorus and the thought it brings. *hugs*
