Gratituesday




 Today I am so thankful for the opportunities God has placed before me. After baby "Q"'s birth I scheduled to come back to see her and the parents for the well baby check and Mama check.  Rarely do I get to sit down and talk with the parents about the birth at length during this visit. This couple was different. 

Baby Q's parents wanted a woman of faith to partner with them at the birth of their first child. We spent over an hour just sitting and chatting about the spiritual significance surrounding the birth. When baby Q's parents got into the 2 person Jacuzzi I turned all the lights out. The only light was the candles that were on the side of the tub. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop.

Mama shared that it reminded her of the Mother Mary and the birth, death, burial and resurrection of our LORD. The stillness and darkness that permeated the world. Such darkness. Sin filled the world but a Savior was coming to redeem the world and that Savior was Jesus Christ. The hush, the anticipation of a new birth.

Mary waiting for the miracle of the miraculous conception and birth. WHat did she think about? No one really knows but we do know she was very connected to God. SHe was a worshipper of the one and only true God. She waited in anticipation.  For my parents that night sitting quietly in the tub waiting for the coming birth of their daughter was deeply spiritual.

Waiting for the miracle...... I am thankful that these parents are deeply connected to God. They understand that they have been given a very special gift and it is their job to nurture and raise this precious one in the LORD.

It doesn't get any better than that. Happy Gratituesday.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
