I've had this song streaming through my head for over a week now. It's so fitting, as I was privileged to be a part of last week's birth story, and then document the homecoming of baby Holland. Isn't it truly amazing that before we ever even see the light of day, the Creator of the Universe knows our name? Before anyone else knows who we are, He has already crafted our being. Gives me chills!
That couldn't be any more true for this boy. As his parents waited and prayed and agonized over when he would arrive, God was already orchestrating his life. Long before Allie and Andrew knew they would be traveling to Nebraska to embark on a long, incredible journey, God was breathing life into August. The preparation can be so painstaking at times! Yet so necessary, as we walk into the calling that God lays out for each of us. The story, the long road and sometimes painful shaping of our character that occurs is worth noting.
Being there to watch this particular adoption story unfold as they finally got to bring August home to meet his family was such a blessing. He will certainly be loved beyond measure! Thank you, Andrew and Allie, for trusting me with recording these precious memories for you! Our God is so cool. ;)
