Be Sure To Read…

October 30, 2008

This wonderful article by a dear friend of the heart who also happens to be an outstanding writer, Elizabeth Foss.

Here is but a snippet:

I lie here on my side now, day after day, counting every precious kick, taking care not to turn the wrong way or sneeze without protecting my belly. Just one life—just one precious child—has a whole army of people working hard to protect her very existence, while out there in the world thousands of people throng at campaign events for a man who has said he wouldn’t want his daughters punished with a baby.

Read the rest here.

And if you’re praying for the election (as we all should be!) don’t forget to include prayers for her (and all other expectant mothers) too.  December 8th is a long way away when you’re an active Mama on bedrest. And specific prayers for a safe and holy delivery would be most appreciated, I know.

    Yes, her due date reassures her that this is all in God’s hands.

    Just wanted to update you all. Elizabeth gave birth to Sarah Ann Friday night via c-section. Mother and baby are doing fine.
    Thanks for the prayers!

Got something to say?
