We forget so many things. . .
What we came into the kitchen for ~ (blank stare, standing in front of the fridge hoping that if we stand there long enough we might remember)
That person’s name that we have known our whole life ~ (hehum, embarrassing)
A special day on the calendar of a loved one or friend
To get the most important thing on our grocery list
Where we were when ____________ happened
Life has a way of “blacking out” our ability to remember certain things; that is life!
BUT, don’t ever forget where God has brought you from;
WHAT HE has done for YOU;
That one special answer to prayer that you will never forget.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
I Do……. It was June of last year….. when I found out that my 10 week old baby growing in my womb would most likely not live.
When I was told in a cold, lonely doctor’s office that the precious life growing inside of me had a ginormous cyst (Cystic Hygroma) on the back of his neck.
That I should weigh my options carefully…
That I should prepare myself to miscarry him…
Or, if I chose to let this life grow to full term, he would most likely die after birth.
What was I to think?
What is a person to do?
I am choosing to remember how I trusted in the Lord to finish the story;
How I told my doctor that termination would NEVER be an option.
Some of my very raw, human emotions during that time:
-desiring that it would just “be over” if this baby was not to live; I did not want to live with the though of “would today be the day I would miscarry my child?”
-not knowing how to pray
I felt the prayers of all my friends and family surround me with one, big, giant whoooooooosh;
It was as if I had been given a big hug;
Then I felt the peace- as if God whispered in my ear “It will be okay, just trust me. No matter what the outcome, I will be here with you.”

So what if….
What if, (like countless other people I’m sure)I would have chose to “get rid of” the “mistake” growing inside of me?
I would never have had the joy of delivering this precious gift!
To watch the way his sister’s eyes sparkle when she sees him!
Or the way she ADORES him!
Waking up to this face!
Having those special kisses on my cheek from him!
Looking into those bright, baby blue eyes!
I could just smoooooooooooooch his cheeks off!
Today I am choosing not to forget the gift of life; the gift of life named Carson James.
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I
am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the
depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand
When I awake, I am still with You.
What will you remember today? What has God brought you from?
What special thing will you NEVER FORGET?
