Praise Ye the Lord

He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
-Psalms 113:9

This is one of my very favorite verses. I used to hold it as a promise, now, I look at it there on the side of my blog, right above the pictures of my children, and I am filled with amazement and gratitude. Through the long years of waiting, I cried over the stories of Hannah and Elizabeth and Sariah, and yearned for children. Now I have three little angles to hold. What a blessing. Praise seems like such a tame word for what I'm feeling.

I've cried over some of those same stories. I remember a conference talk a few years back about Rachel and whoever the speaker was said that some of the most beautiful words in scriptures are, "And God remembered Rachel." I can't remember the reference, but I do remember what comfort those words gave me when we were waiting and longing for our little E.

I'm so excited for you to have a girl! We're still waiting for a girl at this house.
