Today marks three weeks since we began this unexpected journey with Truitt.
David and I went to get an ultrasound and were expecting to be told that I was having a large baby as usual, and that I basically needed to stop whining. Pregnancy can just be uncomfortable sometimes! Instead the day turned into a flurry of unexpected appointments with specialists in high-risk pregnancies, and at the end of the day I found myself sitting in the driveway trying to keep it together enough so I didn’t scare the kids when I went in to tell them good-bye.
As I sat there in the drive way, I knew I needed to call my mom, but I couldn’t figure out what to say. I have a pregnancy complication? There’s a problem with the baby? The baby could be in a lot of danger? The baby is very sick….? It was all what the doctor had said, but all I could think of was passage of Scripture David and I had memorized the first year we were married:
“For you formed my inward parts, you covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)
God had formed Truitt’s inward parts. This wasn’t too complicated for Him.
He was still covering him while in my womb. How much danger could he be in?
God had wonderfully made him. How could I say there was a problem with him?
We are now 3 weeks in on this journey, and though I still don’t know what all is in store for Truitt, I can honestly say with all my heart that His works are marvelous, and this my soul knows very well.
