a dream came true. I became a mother when Elijah Caleb was born. For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a wife and mother. My family truly is my sweet spot in life.
We sadly lost our first baby to miscarriage. I can remember being in prayer one day after the miscarriage looking for some comfort from my heavenly Father. I opened my bible and saw this verse:
"...about this time next year you will hold a son in your arms."
2 Kings 4:16
Needless to say I was filled with hope that this was a word for me. I happen to be an emotional person so I waited expectantly to see. I wrote the date down in my bible next to the verse. That was December 29th, 1994 and Elijah was in my arms on December 27th, 1995.
I love to tell this story. I love being a mother. I love Elijah who is such a wonderful son who makes his family proud! Thank you Father for this precious gift! Happy Birthday Elijah!
