The Gift of Life

From the moment of conception, we are given the gift of life. Cells multiply to create the beings that roam the earth. Life is born with the pain of birth and welcomed with the wail of a first breath. Life staggers in the world, weak and sometimes flailing; and yet strength comes with time, determination and the natural order of things. The gift of life is a wonderourous thing and watching the birth of a pet, an animal, a child is something that is never forgotten. Enjoy this gift and take pleasure in what has been granted to you.

  1. Collline, like you, I have marveled at watching birth. So amazing to realize how intricately God weaves each one of us. And I have marveled at the gift of life as I watched it slip away as well. May we treasure each day as the gift it truly is & live fully for Him. Blessings!

  2. This is so beautiful. My niece gave birth to her first child, a son, a few days ago. It was a very difficult birth and we were all so worried but all is well now. So grateful and your words here have touched me.

  3. I’ve been the midwife to pigs, watched new born kittens, seen baby birds break through their shell.
    Watching new life emerge is a very emotional feeling. Some thing rises up from my heart and soul.
    I enjoyed your 5 minutes on the Gift of Life. You made me remember special moments as newly born take their first breath outside.

  4. Grateful for the gift of life. Awaiting the safe arrival of my daughter’s first.
    The only births I’ve seen were my own children and it is definitely miraculous.


  5. Lovely thoughts Colline – and how appropriate for my baby birds posts this week and last. The beauty of watching new life being born (or in this case hatched!) and learning to survive on their own by facing obstacles and overcoming them.


  6. Enjoying the birth of life is a wondrous gift to witness.
    The passing of life is a sad occasion, yet one that can be appreciated in the knowledge of achievements attained.
    Your post made me thoughtful Colline, I lost my sister a few days ago, an elderly girl and had so much beauty in her.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
