Now that my dad’s firmly on the road to recovery, can I beg you to join me in praying for my friend Dwija and her baby.
So, basically there has been no change. The amniotic sac has not healed, so I continue to leak whatever new fluid is created. But the baby- the baby has a strong heartbeat and a perfect placenta and has grown properly since last week, which was, to be totally honest, a surprise to the doctor. Normally with a rupture this early, a miscarriage follows shortly thereafter. But it hasn’t. So that’s good.
You guys, so often when I pray, I pray for the peace and strength to accept God’s will. He knows what I wish would happen, so often prayer is as much, or more, for me than it is for Him anyway. But not this time. No. This time I just want my baby to live. I don’t want to say goodbye so soon. I don’t want to have to tell my older kids, who are already so in love with their new sibling, that he or she has already gone home to Jesus. I don’t want it. I can’t want it. I can’t bring myself to pray for the peace and strength to endure that.
I just want my baby to live
