I was tagged by Kimalita a few days ago and while I do not like to tag others I don't mind participating.
Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
Okay, I grabbed the nearest book of over 123 pages but the selection on page 123 wouldn't make much sense typed here as it is from "Managers of Their Chores". So I went to the bookshelf behind me and pulled off a book I enjoy -- "Loving God with All Your Mind" by Elizabeth George.
A baby is indeed a miracle, a precious gift from God, and a very good thing in our life, but any mother you talk to will tell you that a baby causes a woman to stretch and grow like nothing else in her life. Being a mother truly is an assignment from God which He uses, for instance, to make us more Christlike by giving us countless opportunities to die to our self. God does indeed use the good of a child for our good and for our growth in Him.
After my previous post this is another reminder to me of the miracle of life. As an update on my cousin and his wife, they saw a specialist yesterday and found such compassion there. Their little boy is perfect in every way, except for the one thing that will not allow him to live. At this time they are going to enjoy the pregnancy and feeling the movements of their little one until the Lord makes it known to them the right time to induce.
I am not going to tag anyone but if you would like to participate please feel free, and let me know you did by commenting so I can come and visit you.
