Baby!
« on: August 24, 2012, 08:54:38 PM »
My husband and I have recently been surprised (!!!) with the good news that we are expecting our second child! God willing, we'll welcome our new addition at the end of April. It's not something we were planning, but God seems to have other plans.  ;)

If you could spare a prayer for a healthy pregnancy as well as a safe, complication-free delivery at the end, I would truly appreciate it. We had some unforeseen complications with my son's delivery, and while I'm trusting God for His protection, it's hard not to be anxious sometimes.

Thanks guys!  :)

Through the intercessions of the Theotokos may the LORD grant a safe, healthy pregnancy, and a complications-free delivery.  And may the child have the same wit as his/her Mom.  The Mom needs a challenge.  ;)

Lord have mercy.

How old is your son? Now he will have a playmate. :)
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Wonderful!!!  ;D May the Lord have mercy on you and your family! may the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos be with you and your baby!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
