We got a call from our daughter who has a brand new baby. The little one was up all night crying and Mom and Dad just couldn’t figure out what to do.
The poor things, parents and baby, were exhausted, frustrated and wondering what they got themselves in to.
My wife went over to their house to give them a hand and to check things out. Turns out the little guy was hungry and Mom’s milk wasn’t enough. A bottle of formula helped and the little guy soon was full and asleep.
- This new little life will make for big changes in the lives of this young couple.
Adjustments have to be made, things have to be rearranged and in the middle of all of it a loving family will form and grow.
- But isn’t that what it is all about,”CHANGE”.
This life we are living is about changing, adapting, moving along, growing up and especially growing on the inside.
Our hearts have to grow to make room for the gift of this new little life. There is now a new meaning to our lives and a new responsibility for this child. We grow and change from being selfish to being selfless. This baby depends on that.
This new little guy will change all our lives. Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins all will change because of this blessing of this new life.
- We will change and we must change.
Like this little guys diaper needs to be changed. We need to be ready to for change, to change and in the end to be changed.
