I am realizing once again how very blessed I am to be an aunt….
This morning, as I run around the house and pick out clothes, clean up, wipe noses and change britches….. I recognize that I have a unique and blessed life. Not unique, necessarily because I get to care for children. Unique, Because I get to enjoy the opportunity of playing “small” and “insignificant” parts in raising up, and encouraging children in the Lord, without actually even having been a mama yet myself.
I can remember being five years old when my little sis Callie and first niece Mahala were born. I was so excited! And looked at them thinking “Ah!!! I can’t wait to snatch them up! Thank you, Mommy and Janelle for my new babies”.
Little did I know that was just the beginning. By the time I was in my twenties, I would have 19 nieces and nephews with another one on the way!!
What a true, true blessing and gift each one of them is.
I can’t even imagine how different and boring things would be without every one of them in my life. In the last recent months, 3 new little friends have been welcomed into our brood! Babies Lorretta Ruth, Jude Elliott, and Miles Gideon, welcome to our family!
We have been waiting for you! Before you even entered the world you were already so loved by us. I know that God has made you each uniquely, and to be the perfect fit to our family. I know the Lord already has created you to be gifted, set apart individuels for His glory. There is a specific plan and purpose for your lives . I’m praying you will be world changers, soul winners…and difference makers.
I Can’t wait to meet those still yet to come <3 So , so thankful to Jesus .~
