God is *totally* at work - today - here - in our lives.
A bit of history, in case you forgot: We went on a mini-vacation to the Creation Museum. We had to get TWO hotel rooms, due to the size of our family (hello, people? we only have 4 kids?!). So my dh & I were not able to sleep in the same room, let alone the same bed. This is the first time we have had this issue. Oh well...
My dh ended up being very sick that weekend. I was actually a bit thankful that I didn't have to sleep in the same bed as that increasingly sick man!
We get home fairly late Monday night. He leaves for work in the morning on Tuesday (I hardly saw him). While he is at work, I decide to REPACK and head over to visit my parents. Since he still felt awful, Dean was just fine with us heading off and giving him some time to recover.
Dean still felt awful, so he went to the doctor. Probably just some infection, a virus, you'll be fine - here, take some antibiotics. Next day, he wakes up with a rash and cold sores. He visits the doc again, who tells him "We're not exactly sure what you have, but stay away from people with cancer & pregnant women".
I began to rethink the last week. I honestly believe the Lord was keeping us apart during that time. Yes, we were still "together", but most of the time, we were not in close quarters. We were not kissing, being all mushy or any of that. He felt too awful and I didn't want us BOTH to be sick.
Then, out of the blue, my mother invites us to their place. It just so happened that we could go! So again, I'm away from my contagious husband who's not supposed to be around pregnant women.
All just chance?! Maybe, I guess. But I doubt it. I don't really think the Lord works *by chance*. I believe He has a plan for this little one. Big plans. The Lord knows what this child will accomplish for HIS glory. He protected this child, even when we - the parents - didn't know protection was needed.
