This morning Arthur and I had the privilege to see our newest blessing, via ultrasound what a miracle life is! I truly don't believe I have ever had an ultrasound that I didn't walk away in awe and wonder. I stand amazed at how God the creator of all things crafted the human life and that I have been blessed to carry His creation in my womb...for I'm not worthy of such a tremendous blessing. Today we looked at our precious baby on the screen as all the measurements were taken, and the over all health was checked out. We saw a tiny silhouette of a face, a heart strongly beating, legs kicking, the spine that was well formed, arms waving, and 2 tiny hands with fingers moving around. This was such wonderful news, then came the BIG question "are you sure you don't want to know the gender of the baby"? We again said "NO"! Even though our children were so hoping we would change our minds after we saw baby on the ultrasound. As, we have explained to them before, years ago an ultrasound to us was all about seeing what gender the baby was. But things changed when I was pregnant with Jonathan and the ultrasound told us of all his medical problems. Now we go in for an ultrasound to see the health of the baby, and wait until delivery to see if the Lord wanted to place a GIRL or BOY in our family....either way we will be thrilled!!!
The baby measured exactly 18 weeks today, so that puts me right on time for May 18...not going to hold my breath that I will hit the actual day, the 18th! We long ago figured out baby will arrive in God's timing, which is the perfect time. Even though our children didn't get to find out today if they will be having another brother or sister, we all had the joy of knowing that baby is healthy nothing better than that! We will all get a BIG surprise in May when baby arrives, a precious gift from our Lord.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you...
