Back in March, I took some belly pictures of my little sis who is pregnant with her first baby.
And it’s a girl! (Estella is super excited.)
We all thought she had a name all picked out for that baby girl.
Then, just a few days ago, she fell in love with the name Violet and announced it to the world!
Just today, she sent me this photo.
This is one I had taken back in March of my son Roman holding a Violet over her tummy.
Can’t you just see it all happening!
We could assume Roman choosing a Violet and insisting on taking a picture with it on her tummy was a coincidence.
Or we can choose to see what God wanted us to see all along.
There is so much more to life than chance.
There is purpose.
God had a name picked out for this special baby girl all along.
It’s just a little wonder. Just a simple thing that says so much.
He loves us. He blesses us. He prepares our future before we arrive.
He knows Violet, even now before her birth.
Jesus, I love your beautiful story.
And I love that you make our stories beautiful too.
Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5
