The Journey

I just wanted to share something from a blog I read today.  Beth, from Walking the Journey, wrote a beautiful letter to all waiting mothers and I wanted to share a couple of things that really spoke to me.

“Your joy is just around the corner, and that the wait- well the wait is worth it and the journey- the journey is what makes the joy that much sweeter!”

“There will come a point where you look back over your journey and you will be at peace with every step, every tear, and every loss. You will still grieve, it will still hurt, and the scar will remain but the joy you will have will heal in a way that is beyond comprehension. I just want you to know that the journey will be worth it, I can promise you that your joy will come in the morning and although there seems to be no end to the darkness in sight, it will end.”

I like what she said a lot…as hard as this journey is, think about how much we will appreciate the joy that comes at the end!  The journey is part of what will make finally having a child in our arms that much better/sweeter/special/amazing!  We will really be able to understand that this blessing is from the Lord and from the Lord only.  He knew what He was doing all along! :)


  1. Thank you so much for posting this- it was exactly what I needed to hear today!!

  2. Lisa-
    Thank you so much. God is so good, they are really words from him- I am so overcome that he chose me to write them! Praying for you right this minute as you continue your journey!

  3. You're right - all good things come from God. He gives, takes away, heals and comforts, gives hope and joy - and he knows the pain of being human. How could we worship anyone/anything else? Praise God! :)
