No words...

I had a friend email me today and tell me that I needed to update my blog because the last thing she read was that I said it was a terrible day.

Things have actually not gotten better. They have steadily gotten worse.  Tomorrow I go to the doctor to hopefully get some answers about the chronic pain I've been having. 

And that is just the bad news about me...physically.

Trust me when I tell you that I am learning to welcome the things that keep me close to my Father.  No matter how bad things are right now, our family is together and I'm enjoying a deeper level of intimacy with the Creator of all things good.

I'm currently breathing and resting in the following verse:
"...I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you." (Is 46:4 NIV)
That brings me so much peace.

But the title of this post is "No words..."

Why? The reason is because I am completely speechless over what tomorrow indeed brings.  Although I may be getting bad news about my health tomorrow, our family will also be welcoming a new member.

Babies always brings with it so much hope and joy.

I'll spare you the details of my emotions and share with you some maternity pictures I took of our daughter.














Aren't they both glowing?

There are no words to describe how I feel at this very moment.  Even in the silence of the photographs, you can feel it. The anticipation. The vigil we've been keeping. Waiting and waiting...with no hurry to rush what takes time.

There is such a thing as a love that can never be expressed with words because to try would cause it to lose its deepness and mystery.  You simply know it when you see it.

I cannot wait for tomorrow to put a face to the love I feel for the life resting inside our daughter tonight.

Absolutely, without a doubt...I am without words.

Blessings for your day,


  1. Beautiful pictures, Lisa! They look so happy, so in love. Their baby will be loved by so many.

  3. I didn't know you were in pain. Praying for you, sweet lady. Congrats on your grandbaby. :)

  4. I know I'm late, but I've been off the computer. Again, can I just tell you how glad I am that you are sharing your photos? So, so glad!

    I am sorry about the pain. How did I not know about this? I am going to start praying.

    Love to you...
