My Third Mother’s Day

Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us 

At church, I stood singing in the back row (for easy stroller exit). I held my 6-week-old baby girl; my 2-year-old boy clung to my knees.

Kneeling on this battleground
Seeing just how much You’ve done

Knowing every victory
Is Your power in us

Combined, the moment and the music poignantly pointed to the redemption of Mother’s Day, my former infertility battleground.

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say

Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did you leave us on our own

You are faithful, God, You are faithful

He would still be faithful, even if this had been my eighth infertile Mother’s Day rather than my third as a mom. What a privilege that my story got a happy ending twice over.

    I thought of you on Mother’s Day. I proudly showed pictures of Brandt and Gwenny to some friends at church. Our family is blessed!!
