Prayers and Babies

On my prayer list are half a dozen pregnant mamas and their babies. Half of those have gone through nerve-wracking or stressful or difficult pregnancies. My heart has hurt for these friends. But I have noticed something so special in the past week. All three of these babies have arrived or are in the process of arriving right NOW! In the same week. What a neat testament to God's hand in this whole process - He has blessed each of these mamas with full-term pregnancies, healthy babies, and they have come through a grieving and healing process all at the same time. Please continue to pray that the deliveries of the next two this week would be swift and safe, with healthy babies in the end.

What a mighty God we serve!

"...for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name." Luke 1:49, from Mary's prayer and song of praise, during her own pregnancy and time of uncertainty

Update 9:15 pm: Baby no. 2 is here and healthy!!
Update 8:00 pm the next day: Baby no. 3 is here and healthy, plus another baby from the prayer list!
