In my arms

Heart to heart as I could feel his heartbeat. He was protected and fully covered, surrounded and nourished with everything he would need as he was being fashioned and formed inside me. God’s loving arms were creating, tending, and designing every little feature that this precious body would become. Inside and out was given delicate attention and creativity as his cells, DNA, skin, facial features, personality traits, and all that he would become were forming. I could not transparently see all that was taking place inside my womb, but I knew that my Creator, my God cared about every little detail from the top of his head to the bottom of his toes.  Psalm 139 tells me so.

     When he was born they laid him on my chest and our eyes met for the first time. I held him so closely in my arms. I looked into those precious eyes that had just met mine and the love and adoration and tenderness of all that had been building up inside of me was finally here for me to embrace. Rivers of tears and thankfulness that had been shed for this tiny little life. This long awaited miracle. This precious 9 lb, blonde hair, blue eyed baby boy filled my heart with so much joy! 

     We watched in amazement with each new day as he would grow, develop, and learn something new. Every moment seemed to be a celebration of some sort. Recording the precious details. Rolling over, smiling, crawling, first teeth, first birthday, so many milestones and much more. Each day holding memories and building the sweetest moments and recollections within my heart. 

    A song by Plumb In My Arms came out shortly after he was born. I would always sing this over him and dedicated this song to him. It became words of life, hope and faith sprang forth from the words of this song. I still to this day sing this song over him and declare the words to him. 

   My baby boy is now 7 years old and growing rapidly every day. He is so energetic and life giving and shines the love of Jesus with everyone he meets. He has this precious glow about him. Something so special. I awoke him this morning singing the words over him. He was nestled and cuddled up so sweetly and peacefully. His little eyes met mine and the memories of his first moments of his life flooded my eyes with tears of joy. Wonder and awe as I watch him breathing, living and loving life. The love that is shared around him is beautiful! I whispered the sweetest prayer of thanks for this little gift of life. 

    As you hold your baby in your womb or in your arms know that he/she is safe in your arms. As you treasure and cherish each and every memory and milestone shared with them; capture the moments. As they grow, always know that no matter how old they become, they will always be your baby. Forever and always. Whisper those prayers of thankfulness, peace and safety over their lives. Speak life, love and share loads of laughter and silliness. Enjoy the playtime, wonder and amazement of a little child. 

You can sing this song over them too: 

Your baby blues, so full of wonder
Your curly cues, your contagious smile
And as I watch, you start to grow up
All I can do is hold you tight

Knowing clouds will rage
And storms will race in but you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down, waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Story books full of fairy tales
Of kings and queens and the bluest skies
My heart is torn just in knowing
You’ll someday see the truth from lies

Castles they might crumble
Dreams may not come true
But you are never all alone
Because I will always, always love you
Hey I, Hey I

When the clouds will rage
And storms will race in but you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down, waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms, in my arms

 Plumb – In My Arms Lyrics
