Proud parents Julie and Nic are now juggling three! Uncle Tony sent a camera that records in 360 degrees. Consider what it would look like peering down on the full spectrum of a busy room? Audrey (two) is in constant motion, the babies move from arm to arm, and large amounts of coffee overflow our cups. We are satiated, our need to perpetuate life quenched, and we are feeling slightly gluttonous with this gift of two. Is it possible to record the fullness of love?
Let me just say time stood still when these tiny girls came into our lives, they are exactly what the world needs, drawn into existence by a deep, and abiding love. I call this God. I believe the term “labor” is fitting for this holy work. I watch Julie and Nic drawing on reservoirs of strength I don’t think either knew they had. I try to replenish with Lasagna and quiche but their hidden spring never runs dry.
How these tiny girls will change the world is not yet known but we know God uses small things to accomplish great purposes. I’m reminded of the word Kairos, an ancient Greek word meaning “opportunity,” “season,” or “fitting time. In the gospel of Luke it uses the word Kairos to mean “an appointed time,” to be born. Oh how I anticipated their arrival, of course they came on God’s time not mine, an important lesson I’m brought back to again and again.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
