Little Miracles

My little miracles!

“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.” – Pablo Casals

Children are miraculous indeed.  Through bringing in and caring for a new little one, I’ve been so incredibly blessed these past few weeks by rediscovering the innocent beauty of children.  Sometimes I think I take them for granted.  Other times I think I expect too much, or maybe too little.  Most of the time though, I continually try to figure them out.  I will never get all their quirks or  habits, or any of the things that make them human.  I will never be able to put my finger on what exactly makes them tick.  One thing I do know is that the knowledge of God’s love of children, and the mercy He shows us through them, makes my heart swell with contentment and peace.

Yes, I’ve been incredibly blessed these past few weeks to add another child into our home.  I don’t know any other way to handle it all except with the wisdom that our Father in Heaven has called us to be the hands and feet that meet the needs of this little one.  Welcome, little miracle, welcome.
