Proof God Cares Continues

We all have gone through trials. We all have gone through pain. We all have endured some type of soap opera. We all have times we wish we could erase. But hopefully you can see that, like I say often, God’s plans are perfect. Open up this song now as the words explain a bit how my unplanned pregnancy showed me God is faithful to the end.

When was the last time you, slowly but surely, began putting piece by piece together, finally seeing how God places one thing after another to have you see He’s there holding you. I’ve shared a bit in past postings how, through my unplanned pregnancy, bit’s and pieces were having me sense He was holding me. I can’t help but now share one more obvious blessing. It’s something that was noticed only a few weeks after Cassie was born. With this, however, I’ll just let my book explain.

God and Your Pillow – From Chapter 12

Yep, things were looking good. Just a few more weeks after she was born, I was thrilled at my weight! Remember how I hadn’t gained enough weight those last few months? Well, it turns out that all the weight I did gain came off easily, and more! I don’t know why in the world that happened, but I sure wasn’t complaining. Too bad I couldn’t sell this secret diet and make millions. I was so uncomfortable with my weight before, so I added this to my list of God’s many blessings. He spoiled me by even having me weigh less than before I got pregnant. He, alone, I give credit to. Nothing I did, that’s for sure.

I took this example He surprised me with as one more proof that, as the song says, God stays right there with us to the end. He finishes what He’s starts. He’ll even go an extra mile and surprise you, as He sure surprised me.

True, it may take a while for any of us to see that God’s plans are unfolding. Days, weeks, months, or perhaps even years will go by before you notice His hands intertwined somehow, someway. But be patient. You’ll see it.

Unplanned Pregnancies – Then vs. Now

Pregnant
What was a typical day like for your average nineteen-year-old thirty years ago? When you woke up, you were glad there was nothing electronic close at hand to open up the world to you. You, alone, away from it all . . . perfect. Once awake, you’d turn on your favorite radio station or you’d rewind your cassette to hear your favorite Billy Joel, Whitney Houston, or Lionel Richie song again.

Two Adults Who Molded My Thoughts

brainpuzzleillo-worked

This post, similar to my last, shares another important lesson I learned during my unplanned pregnancy. (1*) But this one is a bit different. I take that back. It’s a lot different. My previous story was about one young boy I was around for a couple months who taught me a few things about me becoming a mother soon. This one is about two adults in my family I’d been around all my life that applied to me becoming a wife someday. Those two people? My parents.
