First Christmas

March 7, 2014

Today I was looking at old pictures from the summer.

I saw the pictures from our Christmas in July up at Ute.

And then I got teary eyed. And a smile spread across my face. Because all this time I thought about how our sweet baby girl never got to spend a Christmas with us, not while we were pregnant, not in this world.

And then I realized that she did.

Our Christmas at Ute was her first and only Christmas with us. Surrounded by people we love, people that loved her. A dear friend even made up a gift that morning for all three of us. A sweet handmade frame just for our little family.

Today that made me smile.

Oh how the Lord surprises us. Sometimes with tears, sometimes with smiles, but always with joy.
