Pictures!

Hadassah Joy 34 weeks 4 days

I’m sorry, but those are the most beautiful jaws I’ve ever seen 🙂

Now for the 4D….

They are a bit distorted because of her size (a whopping five pounds!!), but you can make out how perfect she is still 😉

See how she’s resting on her arm?  One word – precious.  And if you look really closely, you can see her umbilical cord laying over her arm.  Amazing.

As I gaze at these pictures (for the bizillionth time) I am in awe of our God creating such a miracle.  Haddie Joy has already meant so much to so many people.  Her life has worth, even now, yet unborn.  She is laying there resting on her sweet little arm in the safety of my womb, and God is miraculously shaping and forming her.  He knows her days, how many they will be, and what they will be like.  He knows if I will be able to hold her this Christmas, or if she will be with Him and the angels.  Tears pour down my face at the thought of her being with Him instead of me.

Yet, there is a quietness here.  A place of gratitude in the midst of the unknown.  A place to rest and hold on to my Jesus.  A place where, though fear threatens to enter, it is banished and knows its boundaries aren’t limitless.  This is a protected place, safe from all harm.  It is a beautiful place.  I know it as Peace.  My Father is the prince of this place.  He reigns here with a silent majesty which words cannot justly describe.  I am in His courts now, fellowshipping with Him for the life He has created, how ever long it is.  I know where she will be no matter what the future holds.  She’ll either be with us,  or with Him.  Look upon these pictures with me, and wonder at the majesty of our Lord.  For He is good and His mercy endures forever.

  13. Angel says:

    Oh Ms. Hadassah Joy…..if you only knew how much you are already loved by soo many, and you haven’t even been born yet!!! You have been used by God since your conception to teach the rest of us how to lean on God, and not ourselves; and I know whatever God has planned to do through you after your born, it will be great….I praise God for you Hadassah, and I praise your Father in heaven for what He has taught me through you. I can’t wait for the day we all get to welcome you into the world, and I pray that God’s work through you will not end with your birth, but that it would flourish and touch thousands more for His Glory.

    Love,
    Angel

    Dear Brooke,
    Oh what beautiful pics of your precious Haddie Joy! You are so blessed to have these incredible 4D pics of her. I know we are strangers, but really we are sisters-in-Christ who have traveled the same Journey to JOY! Our 3rd son, Josiah Thomas, went home to be the Lord on his birthday. It was 10 years ago and my hubby and I were just new baby Christians, but the Lord is still granting us blessings from that Journey! Your dependence upon the Lord is truly remarkable and brings JOY to my heart as I know He will give you a wonderful journey with Haddie Joy and He will provide exactly what you need to bring all the glory to Him. Thank you Brooke for sharing Haddie Joy with me and so many others. Her life is making a real difference and I am sure it will continue to touch hearts many, many years from now. May the Lord continue to wrap you in His loving arms as you travel this Journey to JOY with Him. His mercy and love endures forever! Abundant blessings of JOY!

    P.S. My favorite chapter is Psalm 34. It brings me great comfort every time I read it.
