Trailing clouds of glory, from God, who is our home ...

"The wait is almost over" ... the waiting for our little light, Palmer, to enter our lives is almost here ;)

I thought of Nikki looking longingly outside waiting for a child to come to us. This photo captures the moment so beautifully ;)

In Spanish the phrase for giving birth is: "Dando a luz" (a un hijo).
This literally means: "giving light to..." (a son).

I also thought of this from the famous William Wordsworth. 1770–1850.

"... Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy! ..."

-- Adam

I can imagine that little light getting ready to enter our lives.

This will be his first name.

Nikki enjoying the peacefulness and serenity of the new nursery!
