Today, I have it on my heart to share with all of you an amazing story of love and blessings. One of my younger sisters has always wanted children since we were very young. It was something she always spoke of and could hardly wait for. Her huge heart was ready to love lots and lots of babies, but unfortunately, soon after she was married, she found that her dream family was going to be a lot more difficult than the average family.
After going through all sorts of medical treatments, her and her husband decided on Invitro Insemination as the method to start their family. I wont go into too much detail, but her twin boys were born happy and healthy. A bit later, they decided to have another child through this same method. Another son was born and they now have three beautiful and healthy children.
They felt so blessed and overjoyed to have all those little feet running around. They felt that their family was complete, and they were so blessed. However, just when we decide that our life is exactly how we want it to be and everything is planned out, God tends to laugh, and remind us that really, our lives are in his hands.
Recently my sister called to share some news with me. She was feeling very sick, gaining wait, and decided to take a pregnancy test. The miracle in all of this was that, without any help, any medical care, and certainly without their usual method of invitro insemination and lots of prayers, they had become pregnant! Fast-forward to today when she was finally able to get an appointment with her doctor to check everything out. Today, she found that she has a healthy little baby growing inside her! What a fantastic little miracle.
This little story serves as a reminder that in our darkest hours, we are still loved. When we least expect it, miracles happen. When we make plans, God laughs! And most importantly, love is all around us.
