i was gifted this book by my high school english teacher. this sweet gesture spoke volumes to me. not many people can say that their high school teachers care about them after high school let alone get them gifts when they find out that they are expecting.
the card read 'children are such precious gifts. i've been so thankful for the gift of being a mommy. i'll be thinking and praying for you and your little one though this special time.'
i was beyond blessed when i opened up two books
(what do you expect from an english teacher?)
both centered on prayer for your child.
i am loving this book

my prayer for sweet peanut
Lord, thank you for paying attention to the smallest of details like a smirk, grin and smile.
I pray that my sweet peanut will have a smile that lights up the room and
radiates your love to everyone they meet.
I pray that you would shine through my sweet babe as they grow from a babe to child, teen and adult. I pray that Clint and I would be Godly examples of what true joy is
and where it comes from.
Lord, I pray that this sweet child would be know for their happiness and joyfulness
everywhere they go.
