checking my temperature each morning
this pretty much sums up the beginning of each morning as we were trying to conceive our 5th child.
after 4 kids I was DONE with a capital D. I had hard pregnancies…sicker than a dog the first 17 weeks. Dakota was 4. Perfect. I had more ‘me’ time
then out of the blue
our good friend and youth pastor at the time said one evening, ” You should have another baby “…what? In my head I am thinking..are you crazy? Four kids…three of which were self - sufficient! I had absolutely NO heart to do it a fifth time.
BUT when Jedidiah said something I knew I should ask God..so I did. I knew if this was something God wanted us to do I better go to the only One who changes hearts and pray for Him to change my heart and give me grace to do it a fifth time and I prayed this prayer. I BELIEVED this prayer..over 12 years ago. And not only did I pray believing this prayer I prayed for a GIRL.
and He so graciously answered. And she has been the JOY of our lives ever since. She was an easy baby or maybe it was because I was a seasoned momma:)
We created this sign in remembrance of that time in my life when God answered our prayers for a baby girl. We painted it in a neutral color combo of gray & yellow…perfect for a nursery or you may customize it in any color you would like. I am hoping this can encourage another momma somewhere:)
Such a sweet memory to look back on and know this child was literally prayed into existence…did you pray for any of your babies before they were conceived? If so – I would LOVE to hear your story:)
Praying a Sunday of peace and joy~
