A Blessing

by Ernestine

I can listen to your racing heartbeats inside my womb all day, every single day.

Time flies. I still remember when your father and I had just gratefully announced you to our family and friends. Now, being able to hold you in our arms will just be a few weeks, or heck, days ahead.

I hope we get to raise you with love and grace, just like how we patiently wait to see your face. As you grow up, I pray that your faith in God strengthens, and so you’ll learn to trust His ways.
