Just because you're mine

My sweet baby girl,























This weekend in the peaceful quiet of the night, I held you, fed you, rocked you and looked adoringly at you. I said over and over, "I love you so much baby girl. I love you so so so much. Just because you're mine, I love you."


Sometimes I look at you and can't believe you're really mine. My baby GIRL. It is so precious to have a girl!

I love the moment before I lay you back down to sleep, when I sway with you ever-so-gently and you go back to sleep, all swaddled and warm, and I get to kiss your soft cheek and stare at your face in the soft light. I am often overcome with emotion that I have the privilege of loving you, my sweet baby girl.

On Friday, in the quiet of the night, the Lord spoke clearly to my heart. After I whispered those sweet words into your ear, the Lord whispered into my ear: "I love you too Stacy. Just because you're mine."

Just as I love you simply because you're mine, the Lord loves me simply because I'm His. And He loves you too sweet baby girl. He loves you too.
