Walker, God has called you by name. You are His!
isaiah 43:1walker baby, God knew you before the beginning of time. You were His very good idea long long ago. your brother and sister and daddy and i are so very in love with you. But Jesus is MORE in love with you. You are His child.
While God was forming you in my womb, my doctor found a large hemorrhage in my uterus. i was put on partial bed rest and told there wasnt much that could be done except wait the 4 weeks until our next appointment. i went home that afternoon and read from the day's lesson for my church's bible study. Matthew 9:20-22 "Just then a woman who had been hemorrhaging for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, 'If only I touch the edge of his cloak, I will be healed.' Jesus turned and saw her. 'Take heart, my daughter. Your faith has healed you.' And the woman was healed at that moment."
We returned to the doctor a month later. No hemorrhage. No bleeding. No evidence that it was ever there in the first place. Just a perfect baby that we were waiting to meet.
during those later months of pregnancy, were told that there was a real chance that you had down's syndrome. if you were a boy (and i was convinced you were a boy), we would name you George after your daddy. if you were a girl, i was ecstatic that your name would be Bliss Berre. we thought we knew your name. oh but our great God was claiming you for himself even then....
