TO BE A MOTHER......

Our family has had a prayer request for the last SIX years that we have been earnestly praying for.  One of my daughters has wanted to be pregnant for the last six years.  I have been blessed in that she shared her journey with me....and many times in the last six years we have wept together when we realized that another month was passing, and her dream did not come true.  This daughter has been blessed with 2 beautiful step daughters who she loves dearly, but still had the desire to have a child of her own.  So the Mother's Day card this week is perfection for her, as she found out this week that this will be a very special Mother's Day for her, as she is finally with child.  I will take the sounds of her calling me to tell me the blood tests came back positive with me to my grave.  I have never heard such JOY mingled with tears.....it was such a beautiful, beautiful sound.  We kind of wept and wailed together for several minutes....and my heart has not stopped bowing down to our GREAT and MIGHTY God ever since, who has knit this child together, and already has HIS hand upon her/him.  In our family, probably another "her", and most welcome, no matter WHAT the sex, this child is already PRECIOUS to us, and I can only hope it will grow to understand the love and anguish that went into the long wait.....the JOY UNSPEAKABLE when we found out it is ON THE WAY, the long awaited answer to all those prayers we cried.  Thank you Jesus, you have done a WONDERFUL thing and it is MARVELOUS in our eyes!!!  Grandchild #8, on the way,,,,OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!

So happy for your daughter and you. I will try to remember to pray for a healthy pregnancy. I too struggled for years with infertitlity but eventually (and through many tears) God gave me 4 beautiful children...the last one was even a "surprise".

Your creations are a work of art! God has truly gifted you. Thank you for sharing.
Congratulation on your new grandchild. What a joy! My sister in law has also been trying for the past 6 years. She was told she will never have babies. I just got the news that she will be having a child in December. Glory be to God who pours blessings upon blessings to us.
