Be still, and know that I am God.
My daughter told me that she can feel the baby moving now, and invited me to experience the small little flutters.
As I placed my hands on her belly, God whispered to me, “I yearn to be known. My love projects itself into form so that it can be recognized and made real,” God said.
“And we are happy recipients of that love, grateful that you want to be known,” I thought.
My daughter looked up at me, her eyes brimming with the promise of new life growing within her. I rested my hands upon her soft belly for a moment more and said a prayer for the newest member of our family as he or she continues to grow because of God’s immense love for us, and His yearning to be known through that love.
