I just found out I was expecting another baby, I just took the pregnancy test in the early morning while my other children were sleeping. I was shocked to find out it was positive.I allready had 4 other children to care for, and was nursing my 11 month old son at the time. so I was scared saying, how am I going to do this.How am I going to afford another, It was a windy morning and I was looking out the window looking out at the quiet small town and my back yard. I noticed a bird on top of a big pine in the back yard. I stared at the bird thinking how beautiful. How strange it was still staying on the tree top with all the wind that was blowing. A peace came over me and I felt that this child was meant to be, and I would deal with it, whats one more child.
Anyway, Emalie was born , my beautiful baby girl, and on her arm, almost as a tatoo, was a tiny bird simular to the bird I had seen the morning I found out I was expecting. She is a very sweet girl and loves jesus allready and is only 4 years old. I really think that the bird on her arm and that I had seen that morning was a symbol of the holy spirit. I have since had one more beautiful baby after her, his name is timothy and is almost 2. He is a special needs child and I am so blessed to have 6 beautiful children that God sent me. This was all Gods plan and I am ever greatful, and know that I am on the path to Gods will. praise Jesus.
