Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

What a Waste Of Worrying

Well today I had my scan and everything is how it should be :-) I am obviously praising God and feeling very thankful that now I can go ahead as planned with my homebirth etc but there is a part of me that thinks, well that worrying I did really was a waste of time! Now don't get me wrong I wasn't constantly thinking and worrying but I did lose a little bit of sleep and I did entertain thoughts of "what if" and how I would manage in the different scenarios.
It made me think that God really does have our best interests at heart when He says in Matthew "Do not worry" He knows better than us that it truly is a waste of time and won't change anything. Even if the outcome had not been to my liking I'm quite sure He would have still had it all in Hand and He would have looked after me and saw me through whatever had happened!

Praise the Lord!!! So glad that all is OK for you to go ahead with your planned birth. Thanks for letting us know. Things are a little up in the air here due to the adoption panel being canceled last week due to the bad weather. So right now we don't know when the handover is starting or ending and life is kind of on hold. Sorry about not being able to commit to a date to get together, but I'll let you know as soon as we have any firm plans. Take care - Deedee

Hi Sarah, I use to be on the AR UK group. We just recently moved back to the States. Just praising God w/you that you'll be able to have your home birth and all is well w/your baby.
