First big family outing this past Sunday. We all headed to church, where Ice Cream did NOT sleep, so I walked around with her nearly the whole time, and don’t really even know what the sermon was about, lol! But it was still great to get out of the house (plus we ate lunch at a park afterward and the older girls played and played, and I enjoyed the beautiful weather!!!).
During worship, which I was able to be a part of, we sang the most perfectly fitting song…Matt Redman’s “Never Once.” Here it is if you’ve never heard it.
As we sang:
“Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us…
Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say…
Never once did we ever walk alone.”
I couldn’t help thinking about the struggles we had as we tried for a baby, and the losses that left us a little scarred, but the amazing, incredible, perfect blessing that little Ice Cream is, and the beautiful reality that God was with us every step of the way as we hoped and prayed for her!!!
