What It Means To Be Loved



25 Weeks
 
     It is crazy at how fast the days fly by. When I look back it seems like only days ago when we began this journey. Now we are already past the 6 month point in this pregnancy. Somehow it feels like I have known my baby forever already. It is hard to look back and remember a time when this baby was not such a huge part of my life. Now I cannot go one moment with thinking about the beautiful little baby that is growing bigger each day. I wish that I was able to know if it was a boy or a girl. Honestly, at the very beginning of the pregnancy there was no doubt in my mind that it was a girl. I never doubted that my baby was a girl. But now as we continue along throughout this journey, I cannot honestly say that anymore. Some days I think it is still a little girl, but other days I feel like it may be a little boy. For now we will leave that in the Lord's hands, knowing that it will be in his time that we will find out.
     On Saturday Josh and I were outside doing some yard work. While we were outside we were listening to the radio. One of the songs that was played was a song by Mark Shultz. It is absolutely amazing at how God chooses to play a certain song at just the right moment. Before we began this journey I never would have thought twice about this song. Of course it is a beautiful song, with a wonderful message. But now this song holds so much meaning to me as I think about the life of our precious baby. Here is the link to his song. Mark Shultz- What It Means To Be Loved  Please take a moment to listen to this song, it is worth the time! But just a warning, it will probably bring tears to your eyes.
      This song captures my heart in such a beautiful way. There was never any choice for Josh and I when we found out the news about our baby. We just knew that we were given a gift, and that our baby was a miracle from God. This song causes tears to run down my face, because I know that it is absolutely true. I want to give my baby the world, I want to hold my baby's hand, I want to be my baby's mom for as long as I can, and I want to live every moment until that day comes, I want to show my baby what it means to be loved. This is my prayer each and every day. I do not know how long I will have with my baby. The story in this song is a little bit different than our story. But the message remains true. I will not have a lifetime to show my baby love. I will not be able to hold my baby's hand forever. I will not be able to watch my baby grow up. Everything has changed now that we know we will not have a forever. But from the very first minute that I knew my baby was growing inside, I knew that I would live every moment to show my tiny baby just how much it is loved. And I know that this baby will be loved and remembered forever in our hearts. No matter what the future holds, we will live every moment to show this baby what it means to be loved.
 
What It Means To Be Loved
Mark Shultz
 
For five months and eight days my wife and I had waited
Getting ready for our baby girl
But when he called the doctor said I need to see you
and could you come in soon
then something died inside of me to sit with him and hear
the tests that said our baby may not live to be a year
then turnin' to my wife and he said "what do you wanna do?"
and she said...
I wanna give her the world
I wanna hold her hand
I wanna be her mom for as long as I can
and I wanna live every moment until that day comes
I wanna show her what it means to be loved
so we spent each day, watchin' every minute
and prayin' for our baby girl
and I will not forget the way I felt that moment
when she came into this world
but they took her from the room just as soon as she was born
and watchin' through a window I could see her holdin' on
when a voice inside me said...
I wanna give her the world
I wanna be her dad
I wanna hold her close for as long as I can
and I wanna live every moment until that day comes
I wanna show her what it means to be loved
And ever since the day
we got to bring her home
she's been out to prove the doctors wrong
oh and you should see her now
she's as pretty as her mom
and there's a boy at the front door waiting just to take her to her high school prom...
and he wants to give her the world
wants to hold her hand
and someday she may get a wedding band
but she's gonna live every moment until that day comes
and we're gonna show her what it means to be loved
Oh yeah (what it means to be loved)
show her what it means to be loved
what it means to be loved

For five months and eight days my wife and I had waited
Gettin' ready for our baby girl
But when he called the doctor said I need to see you
And could you come in soon
Then something died inside of me to sit with him and hear

Then turnin' to my wife and he said "whata you wanna do?"
And she said...

I wanna give her the world
I wanna hold her hand
I wanna be her mom for as long as I can
And I wanna live every moment until that day comes
I wanna show her what it means to be loved

So we spent each day, watchin' every minute
And prayin' for our baby girl
And I will not forget the way I felt that moment
When she came into this world
But they took her from the room just
as soon as she was born
And watchin' through a window I could see her holdin' on

I wanna hold her close for as long as I can
And I wanna live every moment until that day comes

And he wants to give her the world
Wants to hold her hand
And someday she may get a wedding band

And we're gunna show her what it means to be loved

Oh yeah (what it means to be loved)

Show her what it means to be loved
