Along with everything else in life, I am striving to approach pregnancy/birth simply as well. We were finally able to meet with our midwives in person today! (Our first appointment in December had needed to be cancelled due to the snowstorm, and we’ve only talked via phone/e-mail during this time.)
“For you created my inmost being;you knit me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful,I know that full well.My frame was not hidden from youwhen I was made in the secret place.When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,your eyes saw my unformed body.All the days ordained for mewere written in your bookbefore one of them came to be.”Psalm 139:13-16
I am so grateful to know that God our Creator has blessed us with this little soul, and He will provide for this child’s needs. Today, as I paid our midwives, we again expressed our gratitude for His provision. In November, before we found out about my pregnancy, a check arrived as an early Christmas gift- in the exact amount we needed to retain our midwives! God is good.
