Love at First Sight

We had our five month ultrasound on Thursday, which was so fun and such a relief to see the baby doing wonderfully. We decided to wait and be surprised, with the sex of this baby, like we did when we had our son Jared. It's like the most exciting Christmas morning!
After losing two babies, and having a vanishing twin with this pregnancy, I always feel like we are walking on eggshells, and praying to not receive bad news with each OB appointment. I try to be relaxed but it is so hard. I look back to our first pregnancy, with our son Jared, and just remember how blissful and wonderful everything seemed. I was so naive to what could happen, and now I am just thankful each day that the Lord allows me to carry this child. It is such a gift!
As we were leaving our ultrasound appointment, my hubby said to me, that though he is so thankful, and felt so joyful, he was thinking of those, who may be in the same waiting room, because they have already lost their baby, or will be receiving heartbreaking news.
Isn't this the Lord's will for our lives? To be more sensitive to others, to care for others in need, to give hope to the hopeless!

Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
