I cannot think of a more splendid time in a woman’s life that when she is with child! I know, I know, all you women are thinking are you SERIOUS? Now that I am 60 years old, when I think back to my 3 beautiful pregnancies, it is with such fondness, and my heart was full of hope, and mystery all at the same time. Back in the 70’s, we did not have an ultrasound to find out the sex of our babies. If you had an ultrasound, it meant that something was not quite right or drastically wrong. My oh my, how things have changed.
This is one of the things I so love about Raquel and her husband’s story, they have chosen not to know the sex of their baby and wait to be surprised at his or her birth. This makes me smile, as the mystery builds as your tummy grows, and expands to prepare for birth. What an amazing body the Lord has designed just for us as women. To give birth is the greatest of all tasks a human can ever experience or accomplish. It is what keeps our generations moving forward, and all of humankind progressing and evolving, and more importantly, it is where our God reveals His nature to us in the most profound way. I remember thinking after my first born son arrived into this world, that God is surely who He says He is, that by no other means could a human come from my body, developed in secret, perfect in every way, with his own set of DNA, specifically to him, to start the cycle of life, had it not been for the divine nature and creator of my God! We cannot experience birth and be real about it and not call it miraculous! God met me in a very real way the day my first born arrived, and my prayer for you Raquel is that He does the same for you on the day your first born will arrive into this world! Many blessings, and to God be the Glory! This is but a short moment in time, of Raquel’s beautiful journey, with her child.
