feeling the blessing of a healthy baby

Well, today was the day I had been both dreading and looking so forward to...after going from feeling 100% sick to 100% not sick on the first day of week 10..and enduring some pretty annoying cramping every few nights after that, I was 50% sure that our baby was not doing well. (to say it nicely)..but our little one (boy--by my prediction and the dr's speculation) was quite the show-off at his appointment today.  He flipped around, turned and looked at the camera, pulled his cord over his shoulder and put it in his mouth, put his thumb in his mouth, waved at us and pushed on my placenta..he was moving and grooving to say the very least.  We got tons of great pictures!  Thank you God for a healthy, heartbeat today!  I have both grieved his possible death, and am now celebrating his vibrant life all in one month.  Thank you for joining me in prayer for my heart, that I would be less concerned with circumstances and more concerned with having a Godward orientation of my heart.

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
