I wanted to talk about a new part of beautiful awakening. We will be having Fridays to showcase crafting using the gift God gave us. I'm really excited! Our first project is by Kenya. She is a new edition to Beautiful Awakening and I am really excited about the blessing and inspiration that will come through her projects. Here is a little about.
I would like to give you a little background on the significance of the project. Some years ago I became pregnant but miscarried. I was told I would never be able to carry children unless I had surgery. I were ok with that. I figured I would just travel the world and do what God called me to do. Years later, after I getting married, I became pregnant. I miscarried again. The second time hurt more than the first However, my husband and I said if God wanted us to have children then it would happen. A year later, I experienced some pain and went to the ER after leaving work. There I discovered I was pregnant again. They did an ultra sound and I was able to see a little figure on the screen. The dr. informed me I was in the beginning stages of a miscarriage. He then said he could give me something that could terminate the pregnancy. It was my decision. He proceeded to say, no matter what, miscarriage was inevitable. I can do it now, or prolong it. He said he would give me a few minutes to make my decision and then the dr. then left the room.
I laid there with a thousand thoughts going through my head. I just saw my baby on the screen with a heartbeat but then....I contemplated calling my husband as he had no idea where I was. Then I heard the Holy Spirit say talk to me. I began to pray. I remember saying Lord, let Your will be done! I had such a peace come over me. The dr. opened the door and said, "Well?" I told the dr., "IF this is going to happen, I am going to let it happen naturally!" He was shocked at the strength of IF. He chuckled a bit and said ok, I'll see you in a few days then. I said I don't think you will but OK. He gave me my discharge papers and I went on my way.
Well that was ten years ago this month! I am proud to say not only did I carry my child full term, I had three more to follow! When man says no, God can say YES!! It is all about His timing! I did not have the surgery the original dr. said I needed in order to carry full term!
This digital layout is of my baby girl and my father-in-law meeting for the first time. I can't help but get goose bumps when looking at it after living through my story! I pray my experience was a blessing to you! Remember God can do all things. Man does not have the final say so, but God does. Be encouraged, Kenya~
