As I read different blogs over the past few months I noticed a growing number of bloggers had exciting news to share. Of the family variety. Adding to their family to be exact.
Ever Joyful, Life in a Shoe, My Charming Kids, Raising Arrows, Raising Olives, Sacred and Profane. I think that's all. That I know of anyway.
I wanted to be numbered among them. Not to be "part of the group" just so I could say I was, but the reason behind the group. Not that they are an official group per se. Just in my mind there was a group of women among the blogs I follow that were expecting a baby. I would read each post to soak up anything relating to babies.
You'd think I was weird. I have 9 already. But there is just something so special about having a baby. To think that you are being entrusted to carry a life. To raise that eternal soul for God. To shape and mold a precious life to the glory of God.
...I have joined that group.
Another baby is being formed as I type.
Baby #10 (hopefully, prayerfully) Although if you count the 2 that are with Jesus it is actually baby #12.
So, please, rejoice with me and pray for me and baby.
For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him:
Until next time...
