tuesday, april 4th 2017.  sitting in a circle with sisters tonight, holding hands, telling secrets, and my nine year old whispered her story.  she decided this morning to trust in God.  she put her hands in water and put a ring on her finger as a reminder and told God she was ready to trust him.  through her tears she told us that she had felt his presence all day.

i held her face in my hands, both of us crying, and told her the truth.  that her heart is now sealed for God alone and that he will never leave her or forsake her.  it is done.

best. day. ever.

As someone who stalked the Bump for news of her "first" birth in the delivery room.... man. That pales in comparison to reading this today about her birth "again." Rejoicing with you guys from Ohio.
