Divine Comedy

I pray that God would make me a good mother to all the children he would give us, and I never ask that we not have more children, but I haven't actively petitioned for more children since we reached a number of babies I won't mention.

But a confluence of circumstances a few months ago prompted me to crunch some numbers, at which point I realized I'd better start praying hard for a baby that month, because getting pregnant the next month would land my due date right in the middle of shotgun season. So, by golly, I prayed for a baby! I'm not big on "God must have wanted . . . " but I can't help suspecting a joke on me here.

As God would have it, I didn't get pregnant that month or the next. Quintus and I are well out of shotgun season range. Please make arrangements for my maternity leave in January.

Another bubble baby! I missed that thing. :D

You already know how thrilled I am for you, but I'll let the whole wide world know it, too. I thank God for your babies. :)

And I say again, :D :D :D :D

The other day I thought, "Hey! They've more than multiplied!" :) It brings us great joy to know that more of your kind are up-and-coming.

Congrats! We just announced to family that our Quintus will arrive in late January as well! I guess this puts me back, firmly in the actively professing camp. Eeek! I hope you are feeling better than I am!

Rebekah said...

Pam, wow! This run hasn't been my worst, but not my best either. :P

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Reb. Mary said...

Hooray for Pam! Wow, I'll be excited to find out if this will make FIVE BOYS for you. :)

Theophil Jones said...

Congratulations! Both to you and Pam. I hope the second trimester comes quickly!

Dakotapam said...

Well, five boys would equal five good pastors if we play our cards right! But a certain Rev. who will remain nameless has been wearing out a spot of carpet praying for ribbons and lace.
