The Baby Bed

As an expectant parent, one of the most exciting things to do is put together the crib, wash the bedding and imagine how adorable your little bundle of joy will be as he/she lays in there.

I will NEVER again take this small, exciting task for granted.  When we were pregnant with Faith, I didn’t set up a nursery because we knew that even if the Lord chose to spare her life, she would spend some time in the hospital before coming home.

We set up Emmy’s crib Tuesday night, and it literally took my breath away.  I am so immeasurably grateful for the chance to do something as small as set up a crib.

As I tied the bows on the bumper, I thanked God with each bow for giving us this gift in Emmy.  I was reminded of the verse, Psalm 30: 5 “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

Just as we were promised, our joy has come, and it keeps on coming.  Sometimes it feels as though we have wept longer than a night, but in a way, it is good to know that Faith isn’t forgotten.

If you are walking through a trial in your life, just know that God’s Word is true.  He keeps His promises.  If you turn your eyes to Him, your joy will come in the morning!
