My mom sat in the doctor's office waiting to hear the results of the pregnancy test she had taken. He entered and told her that while there was a hint of the pregnancy hormone in her body he did not believe her to be pregnant, and then he handed her a prescription. When she asked what it was for he told her that it would help her get back to normal. Feeling a bit concerned my mom sought a second opinion. The second doctor told her that she was indeed pregnant and that if she had taken the prescription she would have aborted me. I remember hearing that story for the first time and letting those words sink in. I would not be here if my mom had not sought a second opinion. She tells me she is so glad she did and says she could not imagine her life without me. I am grateful for a mom who did not take a pill but listened to that quiet voice within. I am also grateful to see so many young people taking a stand for life; individuals boldly speaking the truth about life. May we all have the boldness to continue to take a stand and share the amazing news that we are valuable because He made us in His image.
I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
