my lighthouse

Retracing our steps on this beautiful hike.  Completed once while 41 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and now with our sweet babe in my arms and my love by my side.

To reminisce brings me so much joy.  To think back on my thoughts and feelings, and relive them if only for a moment more.  My photographic memory immediately floods the forefront of my mind with waves of memories, vivid as the day they happened.

I find myself reminiscing on God's goodness, His ever loving grace, and mercy.  In all the ways He has blessed me and my family I cannot repay.  In the way He brought us a beautiful, healthy child who loves life as much as her dada and I do.  His way of always looking out for our own good, even when we question.  He says, "trust me, my child."

This hike pushed me into labor and 1 day later, Brent and I welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world, 8 months ago.

I know this gift that He has given us, she is a glimpse of The Father's Heart.  My heart now beats outside of my body in her, just as our Father's heart beats inside all of us, His children.

If you find yourself hopeless, wandering in darkness, feeling lost amidst the deep blue ocean, put your trust in Him.  I promise you, just as He has promised me, He will carry you safe to shore.

In the silence, You won't let go
In my questions, Your truth will hold
Your great love will lead me through

You are the peace in my troubled sea
You are the peace in my troubled sea

My Lighthouse, my lighthouse
Shining in the darkness, I will follow You

My Lighthouse, my Lighthouse
I will trust the promise,
You will carry me safe to shore
