Although it is a weeks late it still sums up the love we both have for our boys.
Lately I've been pondering (seriously this time) the word 'miracle.'
Websters defines the word 'miracle' as:
"An effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause; such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of god; a wonder or marvel."
This definition is spot on. Not only is this pregnancy a miracle... its a miracle x2! To be expecting one child is a miracle. But to expect two at once is absolutely awe inspiring. Just to think about how these babies are conceived... how two cells multiply so rapidly to make and embryo, then a fetus, and ultimately a baby... how they don't even have to use their lungs while en utero... how their circulatory system basically runs backwards until they take their first breath then switches gears, does an about-face and goes the other way - closing valves that were open to bypass the lungs while in mommy's tummy... how squeezing through the birth canal compresses their little torsos and the recoil of exiting makes most of them breathe... and SO much more...
We have a good God. We have a great God. We have an all knowing God who is perfect in everything He's ever done and who made our reproductive process - from sperm and eggs to birth - so miraculous.
Think about it. Get a medical book on the A-Z's of reproduction. Read it and then, yes, let your mind ponder the thousands of miracles that take place with just ONE baby from start to finish. Get all that in your head and then multiply it by TWO and that's what He saw fit to bestow upon Miranda and I. Who are we to deserve these gifts? I don't know, but I'm suuure glad they're on their way!
On my knees in utter un-repayable thanks...
