Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son. Genesis 18:14
Our newest grandchild just turned six months old! So exciting! Baby Joey is the son of our son, Andy, and his wife, Melanie. Of course, all our grandchildren are wonderful blessings from God, but this baby boy has a great story that points directly to God.
Melanie has a twin sister, Nikki, who is married to Matt. Nikki and Matt had been trying to get pregnant for over a year. Andy and Melanie had been trying to get pregnant for several months. In August 2019 we found out that BOTH couples were expecting a baby in the spring, about a month apart! Who, but God, could have orchestrated that?! About 3 1/2 weeks before her due date, Melanie developed high blood pressure and had to be induced, delivering Joey on March 20. Nikki, who is close to her due date, went into labor and baby Theo was born on March 21! Twin sisters delivering baby boys just one day apart. Such a beautiful answer to a prayer that we never even thought to pray!
Is anything too hard for the Lord? Obviously not! We are just so grateful to be witnesses to and recipients of His amazing power, awesome timing, and blessed love.
