Hi friends, just wanted to share our eggciting news!!!! On Tuesday, March 13th we welcomed 9 little new lives into our family!!!!!!
We all watch with anticipation, eager to see the first pip in the shell. Right as they are getting ready to hatch, you can even hear them chirping inside!!
It's an amazing picture of the process that we all go through in life, we struggle to fight our way through the hard times, only to come out and find our place and our strength. Like I said, it can sometimes take one chick hours to finally break through. It's such exhausting work and as a mom, it's hard for me not to reach in and give them a little help. But I can't do that, it would ruin the process for them. They must go through the hard times to gain their strength.
I'd like to reach in and help my children get through their struggles. Eventhough I am here to love, support and encourage them, I cannot save them from their trials. They must be allowed to fight and work through their hard stuff. For only after the fight, do we find our peace. I am thankful for my Heavenly Father, who is there with them and us through every struggle and storm. We learn to rely heavily on Him to see us through. What a gift of true life!!
