As a mother of four, it is all too evident to me how God is Life. The bible says that even before we were born, God knew us in the womb. What an awesome thing to experience life! At the birth of each one of my children, I recall just being speechless in His presence. That He would use me to bring another human being into this world is just pure joy! Without a doubt, a baby’s birth is one of the greatest experiences in this earthly world.
I do not understand how anyone can doubt that life begins in the womb. My first sonogram experience was with my third child. Seeing him in my womb with those little hands and fingers and toes, fully formed bones, and that little beating heart just left me speechless. At one point, he even turned toward us and lifted his little hand and waved! –really! I think he was saying, “Hi, Mom!” (I have proof….it’s on video!! 🙂 Anyway, whether he really meant to do that or not, there was no questioning that he was a whole, living child.
Regardless of how awful this earth can be at times, looking at each one of my four children reminds me that God has better things in mind. As I see each one of them grow and mature, I am just humbled to be their Mom, and of the awesome responsibility God has given me to guide them back to Him.
I pray that I will live up to the task.
