Today's the big day!



Psa 139:13-17 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!


This morning, we will have the privilege of getting a closer glimpse of who this little person is and how God has made him/her. We've been looking forward to this day so much! But please, pray for us. Pray for wisdom and grace. Pray that God will be glorified during this visit. Pray that we'll be able to share effectively all that God has done in our children's lives. It was in this very same office that Lydia's diagnosis of congenital heart defects was made and where she was carefully watched for 15 more weeks. It was there that our perinatologist told us that my particular complication with Caleb was the worst he had ever seen in his career. We were told that it was highly unlikely that I would even carry him to 24 weeks gestation. Needless to say, a lot has happened within those walls.

Today we'll enter that door again, four years later. This time with two children who through God's strength, mercy and grace, defied the odds and are happy and healthy. But I can't lie and say that there is a certain uneasiness that comes with entering that place again. Pray for this momma's heart and mind that she can be still and rest in the Lord. He's been so faithful to me and I don't want to doubt that this visit, with this new little life, can be different than our many visits before. That we can receive joyful news and not leave with our hearts in our throats. The Lord knows how many times we've poured our hearts out and have prayed for a healthy baby born full term in August. God can answer that prayer...I just need to trust Him and not doubt!


Lord willing, tomorrow evening I will have a wonderful report and some pictures to share with you. Until then, keep praying!
