Along with a few couples from my church, my husband and I attended a gala for the Pregnancy Care Center of Plant City. Their theme was “Every child deserves a birthday.” We had finished our dinner and the guest speaker was wrapping up, when I got a text from my sister saying that the newest member of our family had arrived, a sweet baby girl. She, not unlike the babies we were celebrating, was the product of an unplanned pregnancy. When I say unplanned, I mean it wasn’t planned by her parents, but obviously God had planned it, sometimes we have to catch up to His plan. I believe God has a special assignment for this baby girl, because just after I got the text, they instructed us to sing “Happy Birthday!” It was so fitting for that particular moment. Sometimes God shows you how the pieces of His puzzle fit together and when they fall into place, it paints a beautiful picture and lays out a glimpse into the future. In addition to that, the speaker kept calling babies a gift from God, and it just so happens that this baby girl was born on her daddy’s birthday! Such a sweet, sweet, gift.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Psalms 127:3-4
