one of my favorite thoughts on God + motherhood + babies + life

“And when my friends Paul and Danielle had their second daughter, I went to the hospital and held her in my arms.  She was tiny and warm like a hairless cat, and she was dependent.  When I looked over at her mother, Danielle’s eyes told me life was about more than sunsets and romance.  It was as though having a baby made all the fairy tales come true for her, as though she were a painter who discovered a color all new to the world.
I can imagine what kind of conversation God and Danielle will have, how she’ll sit and tell God the favorite parts of the story he gave her.  You get a feeling when you look back on life that that’s all God really wants from us, to live inside a body he made and enjoy the story and bond with us through the experience.”
-A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, Donald Miller
p.s.  read this book.  you’ll be happy you did.


  1. Absolutely one of my favorite books. I took a felt tip pen to it, underlining anything that moved me. I think the entire book is underlined. :)

    Beautiful, beautiful quote. Beautiful book. :)
