happy, happy birthday.

this week’s
picture me {im}perfectly
post has been cancelled
(feel free to still link up though)
it’s my sweet little L’s 3rd birthday!
(and mine, too!)


three years ago, today
i was in a different state of mind.
a very different state of mind.
actually, we weren’t even sure
if our little L would make it.
and B and i were learning a new medical vocabulary.
one that no person really wants to learn.


but today?
today we can see
God’s grace and light
so beautifully illuminated in our little guy.
and for that, we are so forever grateful to God.


i mean, seriously.
how can you not smile at that face?
it’s impossible.


we have come so far
(and there’s plenty more to go through – this, i am sure of)
but we know that
we are not stronger
for having gone through all of this.
no, in fact, we are recognizing
more and more, daily
how weak we really are.
but, oh how strong God is.
and how fiercely He loves and adores us all.


happy, happy birthday
to my little boy
who has taught me so very much about Jesus
through these chromosomal and brain abnormalities.


But he said to me,
“My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
