A handful of times I've walked into moments where it felt like Heaven and Earth were about to join hands and all the world would skip a heartbeat so that one heartbeat would come and beat among us - last week held one of those days.
The "R" family walked into the sacred space of new life and held their little boy, giving him a world of love long awaited. I was honored to be there to capture those sweet moments of this family, as I have breathed the thought so many times I say it now - I hold these moments of bearing witness as an undeserved privilege.
Congratulations, sweet friends, on the new gift of new life you hold today.
May God bless your little one and hold him always.
