Today in church we were worshipping. I was holding Emery with one arm and Nash with the other. Brian was holding Heath next to us. We were singing one of my favorite worship songs…
I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned.
In awe of the One who gave it all
I’ll stand, my soul, Lord, to you surrendered
All I have is yours
I so badly wanted to raise my hands and loudly proclaim the words of this beautiful song, but my arms were full. My heart was swelling bigger and bigger as the music built and I pictured myself in heaven standing just as I was with my family by my side: me holding Emery and Nash and Brian directly beside me holding Heath but also holding Elle.
It was a simple moment today, but it was one of the best moments of my life-
a moment I will always remember.
The only thing better than raising my babies to know and adore the Lord would be to worship Him with our entire family in His presence. Some day.
