Inside the womb

This was also written for my brother’s writing prompts.


This place, this wonderful place is where I’ve always been. It is dark and warm. It is safe. This is my world. These nine weeks I’ve been alive have been so wonderful, Mommy dearest. Any moment now and you’ll awake; I wonder what we will do today!

 Ah, you awake and I wiggle with excitement. You get ready for the day oblivious to your little fan club. Oh Mommy, you are the best person in the whole world—I love you!

 Where are we going, Mommy? If it’s with you, than I want to go too. I can’t wait until the day we meet face to face. Did you know I have your eyes, your hair and laugh? I only hope that someday I may be just like you.

 This is a new place, Mommy; what are we here for? I don’t think I’ve seen these people in the green clothes before. Why are you lying down? Is it nap time already?

 Mommy, what’s happening? What is intruding my sanctuary? Oh Mommy, I feel something sucking at my arm! What is this pain I feel? Oh Mommy, I promise I’ll be good—I promise I’ll do anything you ask—please just make them stop! You must protect me; you can’t let them do this to me! Mommy they’re ripping me apart, I can feel it…

 So this is the end of my world. Remember Mommy, I love you.

I’m just a little babe that was within your womb,
Who could have guessed that this would be my tomb?


In Christ,


Gal. 2:20, Ps. 16:11



Alright, so my cousins tagged me on their blogs to do this, so here is some random information I’m sure you were all dying to know about me. : )


1. Because of my inability to swallow pills, my family takes much pleasure in getting a handful of pills and then calling my name. I rush off to see what they want me for, and upon my arrival, they say “watch this Grace!” And proceed to swallow all their pills. It’s rather hilarious when you think about it…

2. I love to sing. Pretty sure I was born singing. : )

3. My younger siblings often call me “mom” accidentally–I’ll take that as a compliment.

4. I’ve never been bored in my life.

5. I love my family. That cannot be understated. My family is awesome.

6. When I get into it I really enjoy house cleaning.

7. Children often wrap thier arms around my legs and call themselves “Grace-leeches.” I absolutely adore little Grace-leeches. : )


Name your favorite color(s): Purple, blue, green, yellow, gold, pink, red, orange, silver, brown…you get the picture

Name your favorite song: When God is Near by the Wilds (but it’s so hard to pick a favorite!)

Name your favorite dessert: Pretty much any form of ice-cream, shakes, or smoothies…lemon bars and cookies are good too.

What is annoys to you: If I’m in the right mood, nothing. If I’m not in the right mood, almost anything.

When you are upset you: That varies…sometimes I clean, sometimes I pray and cry, sometimes I isolate myself, sometimes I talk to a parent…it really depends on what it upsetting me.

Your favorite animal: I don’t really have a favorite. I simply love seeing the creativity of my Creator in His creation. He astounds me.

Your biggest fear: That as I get older I will backslide and become a mediocre Christian. This is the last thing I want…I pray that as I grow older I will become even more in love and passionate about my Savior.

My best feature: The love of Christ radiating through me would probably be the best feature. It’s what can take a plain or even ugly girl radiate with beauty. But alas, I do not always allow His love to shine through me. Oh that people would see Him and not me.

Everyday Attitude: Effervescent.

What is perfection: Everything I am not, and everything that God is; which is why I’m trusting Him 100% for my salvation. (but a perfect day would consist of sunny weather and a picnic at the park, or a rainy day with hot tea, big blanket, and good book.

Guilty Pleasure: I suppose this is something that I enjoy and then later feel guilty for? Sleeping in?

I guess anyone who wants to do this.
