I got a phone call from my daughter, saying that she needs to go to the Emergency Room, can you come over...well, my heart stopped. She was talking and explaining but I wasn't comprehending or putting the words together. Something about bleeding, don't worry, babysit. But I heard the word, NOW. I was there in two minutes.
That was last Sunday evening. All I could do was pray. Even then, I don't think I made any sense. But God knew my heart.
Mark took Kimmy, who is 14 weeks pregnant to the hospital. I waited anxiously. We had a few text messages back and forth for the next few hours. No news.
While I waited I notice a Bible study booklet out on the table. I picked it up. I read the whole thing, cover to cover. It was about different kinds of courage and how to use them. I felt God comforting me and showing me that I needed to be available for Mark and Kimmy.
To have courage, to do what I can do and God would do the rest.
They came home with no confirming answers but the baby had a strong heart beat.
Monday, Kimmy had an ultra sound and found out she has, mild placenta previa.
Both mother and daughter are healthy! Yes, it's a GIRL! But Kimmy needs to take it easy, and no lifting! Kimmy has more details over at her blog.
So, prayers are answered!
We all plan on helping out. I'm going to be taking a long lunch (two hours) to go and help during lunch and naps. How great is that! I work really close by. It's just minutes away.
Things will be busy around here but I am thrilled that God has a plan and that it includes a healthy, baby girl named Ila (eye-la).
