Next Adventure: Motherhood

Our son was born on October 20! Two weeks have passed since in a whirl. I still remember how my husband and I had tears welling up at the same time while we heard the baby cry for the first time as he was being delivered through C-section. Life has never been the same then.

Having been a professional writer/communications consultant, I have had my fair share of achievement. However, truth be told, I have never felt prouder in my life than when I first successfully burped my
newborn son. And my heart swells with great pride as he nurses at my breasts, and my heart is filled with so much joy when I see my husband and son together. Every moment is so precious.

Being a mother is such an adventure. My husband and I believe that when we obey God, we live our life to the full- joys become real joys, and sorrows become real sorrows. We have laughed, cried, and hugged so much in the past two weeks since this little one has come into our life. Our responsibility has increase, but so do our faith and the graces we receive from God. It is so amazing that once we obey God and become open to life, how our life has ripened since.

I trust that God will guide us through, helping us to be wise each step we take, and giving us enough grace every day.

Psalm 131

Song of Quiet Trust

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

Lord, my heart is not lifted up,
    my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
    too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
    like a weaned child with its mother;
    my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.[a]
O Israel, hope in the Lord
    from this time on and forevermore.
