On Surrender…

Writing with the kids each week has inspired me in other moments. Then Bring Birth Home posted a status on Surrender.

Surrender. To birth, to your newborn, to your older child’s needs. Breathe and allow the natural course of things to flow without fighting for change or escape. Surrender. ♥

I felt struck. Where I had felt intent on abundance, I now felt a shift towards surrender, not unlike my experience of birth. Here’s something I wrote today inspired by that status:

Till Vision Comes

Mind racing,


through hallways of thought

and intention.

Want to be free,

to fall effortlessly

into dark mysteries

of the universe.

Tumbling, leaping,


Over the ethereal landscape,

Surrendering fully

to the pull of purpose.


in heart and mind,

Willingly blind

with trust,

Till vision comes.

    I hope my “likes” on your posts are going through?


  3. I believe that surrender is a very powerful place. It is an abundant place. It allows us to see a much bigger picture than we have been aware of so far because our minds have been compensating for our perceived weaknesses.

    Surrender is a beautiful place to be.


  4. @Kaitlin — Thank you, for your posts and work on Bring Birth Home.

    @Janelle — Wise woman. Agreed, agreed……


  5. For most women, pregnancy is a joyous time filled with anticipation and excitement about the precious baby they will welcome into their families in just nine short months. Several mothers-to-be decide on to commemorate their pregnancy in various techniques so they’ll always have a treasured keepsake to look back on. For example, some could produce a scrapbook, journal, or photo album to document distinct milestones along the way.
