Praise God! It has been three months since I received my little bundle of joy.
God has been with me throughout this pregnancy (my second) and He has made it a very joyful experience. When I heard his heartbeat in the NST in the last week, I was thrilled thinking on Gods protection which kept it beating. Every little baby movement kept me smiling throughout my pregnancy. Things would not have been easier without Gods hand. I was able to be active throughout the pregnancy in spite of the doctors giving so much of restriction because of a post-pregnancy complication in my first pregnancy. Every test result came out normal. I was able to drive almost till the end. Praise God for taking away every fear and filling me with His joy.
We have named him Evan (Welsh name for John) according to the following promise:
And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. (Luke 1:14-17)
