A new journey with Him…

It seems like a long time ago now that this photo was taken. It was taken the day before Noah was born, the day before I was officially a “mother”. The desire in my heart had been there a long time before and I’m so thankful to God for blessing me with this journey of motherhood.

The hand and foot picture of my breech Noah…I knew from when he was growing inside me that this little one would grow to be determined…

bring so much joy….

wonder at the world surrounding him…

travel and enjoy a cafe or two (this is Noah in Amsterdam soaking up the cafe culture:)

enjoy sweet treats over veggies any day…

one day pack his backpack and go on adventures without Dan and I (but thankfully not just yet!)…

learn to spread his own wings…

check out the surf…

enjoy being “silly”…

love being a big brother (mostly…apart from when he needs alone time without Byron following his every move:)…

enjoy taking risks, particularly on his scooter….

and have a vivid imagination!

When I embarked on this journey of motherhood I had no idea what the journey would involve. I’m thankful that every step of the way I have had God’s constant guidance to help me make the many and varied decisions that this ministry of motherhood entails.

Tomorrow, I start a new journey with Noah….that of being teacher. But, you know that journey started when he was born and is just continuing now in another form. Noah is keen to get started on his “school” work. He has asked many times when am I going to finally teach him to read and write….sneakily I have been teaching him how to read since the first time I read him a book :) I’m looking forward to starting this journey. I’m thankful for God’s guidance and strength and looking forward to where these uncharted waters will take us.Bon voyage!
