On December 10, 2012, in the wee hours of the morning, I unexpectedly found out I was pregnant. I’ve never been more pleasantly shocked in my whole life! I immediately woke up John, while giggling like crazy, and told him the news. We both laughed and sat in shock!
He was able to fall back asleep rather quickly and I laid in bed awake where fear was threatening to trickle in. How would I care for three children under the age of three? I begged God to give me my pregnancy Bible verse sooner rather than later (the girls each have a verse). It was that same morning that God gave me Jeremiah 29:11-13. I had no idea how it would play out and that this little life was about to change mine forever.
After a complicated pregnancy, lots of doctors visits, weeks on bedrest, ER trips, countless ultrasounds, and numerous prayers, Josiah Warner was born prematurely and lived just under an hour. I would’ve never guessed that my life’s greatest joy and healing would spring out of my life’s greatest sorrow and devastation. But, Jesus did it.
I am proud to be Warner’s Mommy. And, because of his short life on earth, I really believe that he saved mine. Joy and sorrow perfectly intertwined together in a way that only God can accomplish.
