WFW: Works of God... On Loan from God

"I will put my trust in Him. I and my children whom God has given me."
Hebrews 2:13

I never fail to be amazed. God creates perfect tiny beautiful little babies and then trusts us to raise them. These beautiful babies in this picture are my one week old twin nieces. They arrived a little early so they are still in the NICU. They are wonderfully perfect and just need to gain some weight and be able to maintain their body temperature. Since they arrived I have been reminded of one of the Scriptures that I claimed when my Big Guy was born.

"I will put my trust in Him." Those days of being a new mom. You are tired and trying to take care of a new baby. You are learning to communicate with each other. Every family member, friend and stranger has advice for you and all of it conflicts. I just decided I would cling to this simple verse before I fell into a clump of emotional weepiness.

As I look back on what the last eleven years with Big Guy and seven years with Little Guy has held, I know that this verse has brought us all through some amazingly tough times.

Welcome to our family, Morgan and Kennedy. We have loved you before we even knew you, but no matter how much we love you always remember this... God loves you more!

Oh, they are so adorable! I remember the days when my twins were in born. They were born at 34wks and like your nieces, had to stay until they started eating and gaining weight. They are so sweet, and double the blessing, that's for sure

They're beautiful! Praying they are out of NICU and at home with their parents soon. I love the Scripture you shared and the post to go with it. My bonus daughter is running on near-empty right now, she's so worn down (preemie2 month old who just got regulated on the right formula). I can't wait to share this with her. Happy WFW!
