I am a little shell-shocked that this will be our second child-blessing in less than twelve months. Sometimes the Lord's timing seems so odd to us humans. Why make a woman who desires a very good thing wait so long to see its fulfillment? Why bring another woman so many gifts so close together? Why cause a baby to be conceived to another who will only turn around and abort the child? His decision to bless the one who rejects His gift and not the one who desires it seems strange. It goes hand in hand I suppose with other questions such as why one woman finds pregnancy such a breeze while another struggles to survive each day. Sometimes the answers can be found only well after the fact. Sometimes we don't understand until the Lord reveals His plan after our own life is over.
I am expecting to welcome this child into my arms in just a few short hours. This is an incredible blessing and my prayers are with those women who desire a similar blessing or who are mourning the premature loss of their own infant. Life should never be taken be taken for granted. May God protect those whose lives are in danger today, old and young, and may He grant the blessing of parenthood to all those who are wishing for it.
