Jesus Loves the Little Children
On the evening of August 5th--the day before our anniversary--David and I found out we were pregnant. One month later, Friday, September 5th our little bundle joined the angels. From the very beginning I had trouble imagining myself carrying the baby. While I was happy, I had trouble getting excited. Now I believe this was God's provision to help me prepare for the end. The amazing thing about pregnancy/parenthood is that from the moment that child starts forming it doesn't belong to you. God created it, He sustains it, and whether the child grows healthily or you miscarry there is nothing you, as the mother or father, can do. It's quite an extraordinary lesson in how God shepherds His children.
