Six months into my glorious marriage to my studly husband, I knew something just wasn't right with my body! I woke up one morning sick as a dog and called in sick for one of the first times in my working career! I remember feeling SO miserable that I just sat there on the bathroom floor, hanging over the side of the tub, praying that the queasy feeling would soon leave! What happened next? Well, I passed out.........and when I came to, well.....we just won't go there! I WAS SICK!!
The thought of being pregnant NEVER crossed my mind! My husband and I had our life planned precisely, and even though we both loved kids, it didn't involve them until we had been married at least 5 years! That's when "we" planned on starting a family!
Long story short; God had a totally different plan from ours! We have since brought three beautiful children into this world and delivered one into heaven! Our last, Ms. Marleigh, graced us with her presence on our 5th Anniversary! On the time schedule we planned on starting a family, we were actually wrapping up the child bearing years of our lives! God's just funny like that sometimes!
New International Version (NIV)
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God, I thank you so much for my beautiful children! Help me on a daily basis, to overlook the mess of motherhood and find the beauty!
