Today was a good day. I became a God Mother today; to the beautiful, bright eyed, brown haired baby that was almost born on my birthday. Quinn Harper Goodman is the amazing daughter of my dear friend Justine and her wonderful husband Eric. They are amazing parents, and I can't even begin to explain how honored I was that they asked me to be Quinn's God Mother.
As I held that little girl today and the pastor spoke over and over about the "light" in the world I couldn't help but think about my sweet angel, Avery, watching over me and watching over Quinn as she became a part of God's family... a family that Avery knew so well. Avery was such a Jesus loving, God worshiping, amazing little girl, and I hope that Quinn will know the same kind of faith that Avery knew.
Psalm 18:28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
There are great amounts of light in the world. Sometimes when it gets too dark, we have to remember where those rays of light shine from. A hug, a smile, holding hands, giving a compliment... whatever it may be, spread as much light as humanly possible, so little ones like Quinn can grow up in a love filled world, full of faith.
