precious angel

I have come to realize something in the last couple of days.  Getting an answer to prayer isn't exactly the end of the road.  I honestly thought it would be.  I confidently believed there would be a moment when God brought something to pass that we had prayed would happen for years.  A minute of time when I realized this prayer has been answered.  Check. 

You see, when God answers a committed prayer it isn't really over.  The surrender to God's will on the topic continues.  It isn't fulfilled in a single moment.  It just changes. 

I never doubted that they would be parents.  I believed.  I prayed.  Many prayed.  It was a long hard road for them in ways I am sure I can't imagine.  But every tear cried, every prayer lifted, every day that passed was not in vain.  It brought them to this moment in time when a baby girl needed them and God brought them together.

It is with great joy that I introduce to you Baby H.  She might just be the most prayed-over little girl I will ever know.  She is a gift to her faithful parents and I can't wait to meet her.  To meet the precious angel who made our dear friends her Mommy and Daddy.

Her arrival was perfectly timed.  Not a moment too soon.

And so our prayers continue.  For her parents.  For her little life.  That she would grow up to know how much her Heavenly Father loves her.  That He chose from the beginning of time to place her in the arms of two godly parents.  That she would always feel loved and prayed for because we can't hardly stand to stop now.

Oh yesOur commitment to praying for this sweet family continues.  How blessed we are to know El Roi, the God Who Sees.  Congratulations friends!  We love you so much.

As I met her last night, I was struck with the enormity of this prayer being answered! And realized, the real journey is just beginning. What a wonderful blessing Miss H is!
