"And the LORD, He is the one who goes before you.
He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you;
Do not fear nor be dismayed."
Deuteronomy 31:8 NKJV

 

On this cold winter’s evening,

I think about this year’s plight.

Days it was hard just being,

Trying to have enough might.

 

Now the journey continues,

New joys but also trials.

Challenges, difficult news.

What will be in future miles?

The day I went into labor with my third child ended with quite the surprise. What we assumed would be one baby turned out to be twins! The midwife didn’t discover little Joseph until I had his sister Melanie in my arms. “Wait, there’s another head!” she informed us. I burst out laughing. Are you kidding me? A second baby? How wonderful was that?


Then the reality of the logistics of the situation hit me. Just moments ago, I had delivered my daughter “naturally,” my first childbirth experience without the aid of an epidural. “Wait a minute,” I said in a panic. “How are we going to get this baby out? Because I’m not going to do THAT again.”
