Do you ever feel that God is hitting you over the head with a lesson He REALLY WANTS YOU TO GET?

Just me? OK, then. I can live with that.

Don't worry, this isn't going to be another long, confessional post. But I don't believe in coincidences and you wouldn't believe what sort of things I've been seeing on blogs here lately.

1. Things like, I'm not the only one who heard the "heart -beep" (as Polly once called it) this week. So did Amy. And it was definitely a "finer thing".

2. Jenni, who has had her doctor give her bad news far too often, had some good news to share.

3. Molly Piper's story, (that's John Piper's daughter-in-law, just in case you needed the name drop), has often broken my heart. Her sweet Felicity has touched my life in a way that's hard to explain. And then this week, well, just go read it. If you don't end up clapping your hands and praising God (yes, that was my reaction) I don't know what we can do with you.

4. And, just on the off chance that you are one of the 10 people in the Western World who hasn't met Nella yet, go meet her! What are you waiting for? And don't stop with her birth story. That's only the beginning. Here's another post that you should read. But really, you should probably just clear your schedule and read them all. Nella's Mommy is a good writer and great photographer and you won't regret the time spent. (Warning: large pictures might slow down your load time. And there's a music player at the bottom of the page. So you might want to turn down your volume.)

Maybe I'm starting to get the message.

I'm learning more and more every day how life is precious. And that quote of Amy's - Time heals but a mama's heart never forgets - truer words have never been spoken.
