The New Baby

I am so thankful to be pregnant with my 5th child. We finally got to see him or her on Friday morning and it was so amazing. I have 5 children! How amazing is that? I am so thankful that though I am completely unworthy, God has decided to bless us with 5 kids. God has already done so much in my heart with this pregnancy. We have also had wonderful opportunities to talk about God's goodness with many including our kids. They talk about the baby and what gender they think the baby is. For awhile Jamey was saying he would be sad if it was a girl, but the last couple of weeks he has stopped saying that and is now saying it is a sister. Only God knows if he's right, but it has been a blessing to talk to Jamey about God giving us what is best for our family, even if it is not what Jamey wants. I don't know if he understands completely, but clearly God's grace is in his life to stop saying he will be sad if he doesn't get what he wants. I am so excited to see what all God does with this little one!

Father, You are the giver of all good gifts. Thank You so much for the gift of another precious life. Please save this child for Your Kingdom and Your glory and may they do amazing things in Your name so that many will know Your greatness.
