"You shall be called by a new name,
Which the mouth of the LORD will name."
Many things have changed in my life recently. Our beautiful daughter was born last week and she is a joy to our lives.
I started a journal for her. I don't want to write in it every day but I do want to capture some of the most important moments and let her know how we felt. I want her to be able to see her life through our eyes. And as she gets older, when we may not even be around any more, I want her to always have proof of how loved she was.
While at the hospital I started writing the very first entry in that journal... welcoming my daughter into the world, letting her know how loved and wanted she is and how long we've waited and how blessed we feel. At the end of my entry I signed with a new word - MAMA.
I have a new name now. I have a new calling. I am a mother now.
That changes my life drastically - but I am ok with that :)
