Our Daughter: God’s Idea of a Blessing

Our Daughter: God’s Idea of a Blessing

My idea of blessing used to be so different.

I used to think that blessing was the good things that happened to us, but now I know that blessing is ANYTHING that brings us closer to God.

Even the hard things.

Especially the hard things.

Lyndi has been a blessing to us in the truest sense of the word. She was a blessing when I held her in my arms for the first time 3 years ago (her birthday is tomorrow), and she was a blessing two weeks later when I found out she had special needs.

I am not the same person I was before Lyndi. When God gave her to me, he also mercifully gave me himself; and there were months when I could do nothing but cling to him as I grieved the life I thought my daughter would have.

My old heart was broken and torn apart.

The world grew dim, and Jesus grew brighter.

Tomorrow, I will write a proper birthday post for Lyn girl, (she deserves to be celebrated in the biggest way) but on the eve of her birthday I am reminded that 3 years ago God began transforming my heart, and that her birthday marks the anniversary of the kindest thing God has ever done for me.
