A Heartwarming Story
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty
so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
The Faith of a Child
When David (my oldest) was 7
months old, I had an appendectomy and they also removed one of my fallopian tubes. I was
told by my doctor that I had 50% less chance to get pregnant now.. When our son was almost
4, we wanted a baby brother real bad. We tried everything. I tried the basal thermometer method.
One day I dropped and broke the basal thermometer I had. Needless to say, it left me
frustrated. That same month, my son told me he wanted a baby brother. I just sighed and
said, "You're going to have to pray, David, because we're trying!" He just put
his hand on my stomach and prayed, "Jesus, please put a baby in Mommy's tummy."
That same month I got pregnant and had a boy! After that, David told me, "I want a
baby sister now." So, I told him, "Well, you know what to do." And he
prayed the same prayer. I got pregnant again with my daughter!
When Joanna was born, I was just not ready to
have any more children. So... David again wanted to pray for me... and I just told him
kiddingly, "Don't you touch me!" LOL!
