My girl, changing the world

I stumbled upon this quote and once again, I am amazed at the promise of Lily's legacy and how the Lord is going to use her life...and how He's already used her life. I'm honored to have been chosen to be her mother. Some of the ripple effects of her life I'll see on this earth, and some I will have to wait until Heaven...what a glorious day that will be...

"The amount of time on Earth matters very little: a man can live in greed and pride 90 years and never find God, know Him or accomplish His Plan. A stillborn baby on the other hand, teaches people to love, brings people to the Lord, teaches us the tenuous nature of life and teaches us a faith that those who have not suffered loss can never know. A child who has never taken a breath can have an impact greater than a famous preacher. The purpose of a life is not ours to decide nor in our hands: it is brought about by God." -Author Unknown

  3. I've never heard this quote before, but its truth has been revealed to me over and over again since Amelia's diagnosis and passing. :)

    There truly is no footprint to small that it cannot leave an impact on this world.
    Our God is so great!
