Stacy shares with us some thoughts on her first childbirth experience: Charlie’s birth reminds me of the birth of our Saviour. I was not completely prepared. I didn’t have all the things I needed to care for a little baby. When Christ came to earth, people were not ready to receive Him as their Saviour. As a result of my unpreparedness, little Charles was wrapped in a an unsecured cloth diaper and a blanket. This makes me think of Christ being wrapped in swaddling clothes. I’m thankful that I didn’t have to lay my baby in a manger, but we (like Joseph and Mary) were not in the place we had hoped to be to have the baby. God knew right when and where my baby needed to be born, and Charlie wasn’t born till we got to MI. Jesus had to be born in Bethlehem, and He wasn’t born till after Joseph and Mary got there. How I praise God for His plan in Charlie’s birth, but more importantly for His plan in sending Jesus to earth to redeem mankind!
God bless you! Please feel free to write so we can pray for you.
