And Sometimes, God Gives You More Than What You Ask For

This Sunday in Sunday School I taught the kids about Solomon. I taught them that God told Solomon that he could ask for anything, and that God would grant it. Solomon asked for wisdom, to lead Israel. God was so pleased that Solomon did not ask for riches, or fame, or a long life, but instead asked for a wise and understanding heart, that he not only granted him wisdom, but the other things as well.

This Spring, we asked God for one more child. Matt added that a girl would be nice. Today, in our 20 week ultrasound (I’ll be 22 weeks on Friday) we found out that God has blessed us with not one girl, but two.
We are still processing this news, and I am processing the fact that I went from a standard pregnancy to a high risk pregnancy in less than an hour, but mostly, we are over the moon with delight.
Now we ask for a healthy, full term, uneventful pregnancy.
I’m on my way to Michigan tomorrow, to visit some dear college friends…I may be able to post while there, but I may be too tired:) So, until next time, be thankful for your blessings!
