As this afternoon's appointment drew nearer I could feel my stomach tying up in knots. Erik is out of town, and I didn't want to go alone, so my wonderful Mom went with me. We prayed together before we went in, and I know that many others were praying as well. (Thank you!) The wait seemed to take forever, and finally my doctor came in. Thankfully, she got right down to business, and asked if we wanted to listen for the heartbeat. Of course! I lay there, praying, hoping, listening, praying. We could hear the blood rushing through my veins loud and clear, but I strained to hear the softer, faster beating of a tiny heart. And then, there it was! Tears came to my eyes, and my Mom's as well, as we rejoiced at the evidence of the life within me! Thank You, thank You, Lord, for this little one!
I'm so grateful, and so happy to have heard that beautiful sound today! Thanks so much for the encouraging words and the prayers that have been going up on our behalf. We appreciate it so very, very much.
With Love,
