Faith as Big as A Poppy Seed

It was a year ago today my stomach held butterflies as I sat in my car in a CVS parking lot contemplating wether I should really go buy the test. (Was it wishful thinking?) It was a year ago today my heart pounded as the longest three minutes of my life went by waiting for the test results. (Am I ready for whatever the result is?) It was a year ago today that my hands were shaking so bad I could barley see that bright blue cross screaming my baby's existence. (Can you really describe the emotions?) It was a year ago today tears streamed down my face as I sat against my bathroom wall and prayed my first prayer for my baby. (I Praised God for His creation of this new life!) It was a year ago today our little Clark first let us know he was ours, it was a year ago today we knew life was about to change for the better, it was a year ago today our faith grew in new ways, it was year ago today Harrison was the size of a poppy seed... "For thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Thy works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from Thee, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Thy book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious are Thy thoughts to me O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with Thee.
Psalm 139:13-18
