My Thoughts

I love going through all of my blogs that I love to read. It takes a while as you all know to do just that. This afternoon as I was reading more for the day, I was in one of my favorite ones, Davene @ Life on Sylvan Lane. She is pregnant with her fourth child. If you haven't read hers, go visit, it will be a treat. Anyways, as everyone knows that reads my blog, that my daughter is pregnant with her first child. I know I have been quilty of using that same response when someone would ask me, what would you want her to have, as in boy or girl. I have responded with I just want him or her to be healthy. I've never really thought about that response in the way that Davene described it, but I see what she is talking about. We do know that there is a problem with baby Nathan's heart, my daughters baby, but to be in this situation does not change the fact of how much this baby is wanted, is loved, and we can't wait till he has arrived. There are so many people who cannot accept that fact that there is something wrong with their baby, and do the unthinkable like walking out on them from birth. That breaks my heart.

I know when they wanted Brandi to have an amnio, they said it was to know if there was down syndrome involved, or if there were any other problems, so when she delivered they would know what they needed for the delivery. She struggled with rather to even have one because it didn't matter to her, this was her baby, her child, her miracle that she had prayed for. When you as a mother, watch your grown child, go through emotions, trying to figure out the right thing to do for the right reasons, and when your child goes through it with faith, grace and the most beautiful attitude that you could ever brings tears to my eyes at this very moment.

Exactly three weeks from today she will be induced. I don't know if I can contain the excitement that is surrounding me. When your baby is having a baby, thats a totally different feeling then anything else. We still don't know what the problem will be with Nathan's heart exactly, but we know the Lord is in control, and however the Lord sees fit, rather he will be completely healed, or there will be surgeries that Nathan will have to go through, it is all in his hands and what God wants to come out of this. Whatever happens... To God be the Glory!!!

On a little different note, I want to thank Dot from Picket's Place for teaching me how to do a link. I love learning something new. Thanks so much Dot.

Well thats it for today, I'll be back soon. Debbie


  1. Debbie, thank you! I'm honored--so honored.

    Little Nathan is BLESSED to be surrounded by such a loving, supportive family.

    Three weeks is not very long--how exciting! :)

  2. Every child God allows to be born into this world, is here for a reason. God has a plan for each and every soul. God bless you all as you continue to wait. I am praying.

  3. Hi there Debbie. Thanks for stopping by to make a comment on my blog. I will be saying a prayer for your new grandbaby, and that he has a healed heart too.
