It's A Due Date

by - November 16, 2009

Today marks the approximate due date of the pregnancy I lost back in March. I don't think these things ought to be forgotten. I am thankful for healing, family, friends, and the upcoming holiday season.

I was listening to some Christmas tunes on the radio this morning when Faith Hill's song "A Baby Changes Everything" came on, and I was brought back to two Christmases ago when I was in my third trimester with Scooby, absolutely huge and so ready to meet him. There was something about being that pregnant around Christmas that really touched my heart and made me cry at nearly every song related to Mary being pregnant with Jesus. Perhaps it was the hormones, but it brought a whole new side of the gospel to me that Christmas. The enormity of the grace and favor God gave to her to carry his son, the unfathomable humility of going from the all-powerful God to a helpless child, the fragility and glory of the moment of his birth - it all blows my mind.

  2. In 2007, I found out I was pregnant on Nov 13. I miscarried Nov 19. Micah was born Nov 13, 2008. This time of year is very emotionally confusing to me.

    Last year's Christmas season was very intense, thinking of Mary and the joy she was entrusted with. I hope this year is equally wondrous.
