Thanking God For A Miracle of HOPE!
With a heart of thanksgiving, I give all glory to God for the most beautiful miracle of HOPE at today's doctor visit with my specialist. I had several long, ultra-sounds both, regular and 3-D and it was just amazing... as they always are. The deep connection that I felt with my precious daughter, ever so gracefully moving about in my womb was out of this world, truly divine... (to say the least). My heart was touched and blessed so deeply, I was moved to tears... and I felt such HOPE, even though, we found out that my cervix has unfortunately continued to open prematurely, (funneled), more and so I have chosen to take my doctor's advice and have a surgery done on my cervix on Thursday where he will put a stitch in it to hopefully prevent it from opening any more. There is risk that comes along with having this surgery, though the benefit of it outweighs the risk.
Just now, joyful Audrey, all smiles... walked through the door with her, "Papa," with the biggest smile on her face and a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers that she just handed me! What a double blessing of Hope and Love! I praise God for His Goodness... and continue to give Him ALL the glory He so deserves! :)
I cannot begin to say enough, what a true miracle it was today to see my beautiful daughter in my womb, doing so well and with such a strong, healthy heart beat! At one point she even waved at me with her little hand and opened her beautiful eye. She is so precious... and all I wanted to do was just hold her in my arms! I'll have to wait another four and a half months for that, though, for now, the Gift of Love and Hope that I received today is enough to give me that extra shot of HOPE I needed to know that as high risk as my pregnancy is... that still I know and believe and trust in God... that my sweet daughter is going to be OK, much more than just OK... but is being protected safely in my womb, with God's Presence of Love and Grace!
I remember now... more than ever... "Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the Peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus!" Philippians 4:6-7
Thank you, very much, for your prayers for me, my little Baby Girl and my family and please be assured of mine for you and your family!
God is truly with us... He LOVES us dearly, and there are so many more, special blessings to come to us all throughout this Advent and Christmas season of Light, Love, Hope & Peace! :)
