stu will sing "i am a child of God" to baby milne in portugese sometimes before bedtime. he wants her to know, even now, that she is special, a daughter of God. i can't help but get choked up every time i hear him sing it so tenderly to my belly... it is so sweet.
it's funny how quickly i forget that i am a child of God too. it's easy to feel insignificant when i think of all the other millions of people in this world. but when i think about how much i already love this baby girl of mine, and how much i want in this world for her, how much i think about her... my child... that is the way He thinks of each and every one of us. we are His children.
remember, you are precious.
