A Moment with Faith

Our little daughter was born yesterday morning.  We named her Faith.

Faith entered this world for a very short time before going to spend eternity in Heaven.  She is in God’s arms and, as I told her when I held her afterwards, I am a bit jealous she could be there before me.  I would have loved to raise her and spend my lifetime getting to know her, but God had a different plan.  And while I don’t claim to understand it, I am still confident in His sovereignty.

We held Faith for quite a while, taking the time to make some special memories with our baby girl.  We prayed together as a family and eventually we said goodbye, knowing that the tiny body we held was just that… her soul was already in Heaven.  Our sweet little girl never has to feel the pain or struggles of this earth.  All she knows, and ever will know, is the eternal joy found in the presence of God.

Spending just a moment with our beautiful first child here on earth won’t ever feel like long enough.  My little Faith, I can’t wait to spend forever with you in Heaven.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1
