I can be such a dreamer! I wanted to do so much more to my webstore over the summer but I just ran out of time... I know that never happens to any of you, does it? But I finally decided... after a few very encouraging emails... that it was time to put out the welcome mat and hang the OPEN sign once again. Even though I don't have everything in stock that I had wanted... I do have most of the books and I will be adding to the selections as product comes in.
But for now... can you hear the drumrolll? I am thrilled to introduce to you... my newest book... HeavenSent Baby!
Every baby is a heaven sent gift from God... and I know you would agree. I remember holding my own newborn baby and my grandbabies and just gazing at their tiny little fingers and toes... stroking the softness of their skin... and being in awe of the beauty of God's handiwork in such a small package. But I can also remember all the questions that came with motherhood... mostly questions about my own ability to be a mom to this tiny little gift from God.
There is always a part of me in every book I write and illustrate and I know that I was thinking of that mom with questions... the kind of questions I had... as I penned the pages. This little book was created to be a warm and gentle hug to the heart of every new mom... whether they are a first-time mom or experienced, whether the baby is adopted or was born from her own womb... a reminder to them that they are not alone.
I love that God is the most perfect matchmaker and He sovereignly chooses which babies go to which moms... because remember... there are no accidents in God's glorious plan for our lives... or the lives of our babies! Here's a poem from the book...
with thankfulness and love
as you ponder this miraculous
gift from God above.
this sweet little treasure
to give your life purpose
and fill it with pure pleasure.
if you're qualified to mother...
know this child is God's gift to you...
not given to another!
Your Word says that "every good and every perfect gift is from above." Thank You for the heavensent gift of new life and new beginnings and Your promise to be with us always and in all circumstances. Amen.
