"This is the day the Lord has made, I will REJOICE and be glad in it" Psalms 118:24

I was just reading another momma's blog and she had an older post talking about her sweet little girl and she posted a song and a youtube video and it really rang some bells for me. It's an old song that I remember from when I was younger. "wonder" by Natalie Merchant
The one lyric that really struck a nerve was this:

"people see me
as a challenge
to your balance
I'm over your heads
how I confound you
and astound you
to know I must be one of the wonders
of God's own creation
and as far as you can see you can offer me no explanation"

It is simply amazing to hear this song so many years after I use to "Jam out" to it with no understanding and now it strikes me on a very different level! It is a level that I am SO proud of! I am so proud to have the Chance to be the momma of a son who people are just astounded by, who they are just in "Awe" of, & that he is achieving so much. Hunter is proving all those pessimistic people he is Just like every other kid and that He is PERFECT just the way he is! God doesn't AND didn't make a mistake when he wove Hunter in my womb, He had a much bigger plan for his life and has blessed me beyond my expectations of what I thought it would be like to be a Momma.

I am so grateful! I sing praises to my creator. Praise God.
Thank you Lord for new understandings and for your PERFECT blessings!!!


  1. What an awesome new level to hear the song on, I agree completely. Hunter is perfect, and such a sweet blessing!

  2. I blogged about these lyrics too, they really move me, I too jammed out to this song growing up and never thought about it, weird how that works huh? I love it!! Our boys astound me every day!

  3. Beautiful lyrics! Thank you for sharing.

    I completely agree with you. God doesn't make mistakes! Hunter is exactly what God meant for you to have and he is a precious blessing.

    “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”
    - Jeremiah 1:5

    It’s been said that Down syndrome is one of those “chance” things, but I feel differently. I don’t think it has anything to do with chance. It’s simply part of God’s plan and what a beautiful plan it is! It looks like Hunter is already defying the odds. As a mother of a 6 week old with Down syndrome, I can’t even begin to tell you how much hope reading your blog has given me!

  4. Sheena, I love coming over to see how ya all are doing. The picture is simply adorable. And He is beautiful.

    Thank you that you always mention our creator, our God. I am so encouraged when I pass through here.
