"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it" Psalm 118:24
So I bought a new book called Longing for a Child by Kathe Wunnenburg. And part of Devotion 23 describes how I feel today...entitled Hope and Joy. "If and when you receive good news -- any good news -- give yourself permission to celebrate ... allow yourself to feel the joy of this moment ... Refuse to be robbed of this day's excitement ... Embrace hope!"
I took my urine test this morning and it was negative. I called to have my blood test done and when I received a phone call from the nurse, she said, "Congratulations! You're pregnant!"
I was shocked. My beta was 47 this morning and for those of you who know about betas, that is ok for this early. I have to have another beta on Monday to be sure they are doubling, and then she said, I would be able to breathe a sigh of relief. AND if it is good, then I have an ultrasound on October 28!! I guess I will be drinking Sprite for the toasts!
Praise the Lord. I am rejoicing that you are good and I thank you for your gift. Three children I now have held in my womb. I pray that you allow me to keep this one! My past disappointments and my future fears are at a battle to steal my joy. You are my hope. I surrender my disappointments and fears to you today. Fill me with faith, hope and love. I trust in YOU! In Jesus' name, AMEN!
