One September Day

Thursday, March 3, 2011

Would you share with me?

Our Baby Blessing is due so soon.  I am anxious to see her face...rest her cheeks against mine,,,feel her warmth against my arms.
She has a strong bond with me already. She moves to our touch on my belly, she stretches when I am finally comfortable.


 She loves her sweet sisters singing to her... but the my most intriguing and special part of carrying her in my womb, is..
Baby Blessing reacts to my hear-rate.  I am in awe.
My other pregnancies also had their unique and amazing qualities... some were drawn to music.. some to voices... some to food/sugar.
But, This sweet baby girl reacts to me.  When I am calm.. she is calm
When I am laying in bed, thinking about something that might be worrisome, or a little frightening,, she reacts.
I love this baby girl, and she will be here soon.



So... Could you share with me?.
What?

Well., for each birth, we compile a list of verses for our labor and delivery.
Dan will bring them and read them aloud to me... calling on the Name of the Lord.. and using His Word to comfort me, and keep me focused.
He prays, reads our verses, speaks to me in calming tones, and is with me to the very end.

I am working on my list again.  I often will pull the same list, and change it for every birth.
Verses on comfort, Strength, His Presence, His Faithfulness, His Promises.
Verses boldly proclaiming Trust, Peace, and Thankfulness.

Would YOU share with me?
Share a Verse or two, or three.. that I can write into my list for this Journey of birth and life.
A Journey of pain, trust, and new beginnings.

I am so thankful for those that read and share here at One September Day... and your prayers and sharing will add to the day soon to arrive.

Blessings to you my dear friends.

    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. These are a couple of my favorites.

    Cast your cares upon the Lord, for he cares about you.
    I Peter 5:7

    •A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; But as soon as she has given birth, she no longer remembers the anguish, For joy that a child has been born into the world.
    John 16.21

    What a beautiful idea!

    “The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.” – Psalms 145:18-19

    “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.” – Psalms 46:1-3

    May God bless you and your sweet baby in the days to come!

    Hi September, this verse has been an encouragement to me so I will share with you ~
    Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, the Mighty One who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

    Hi September! When we learned last year that I was pregnant, I struggled with a lot of "what if..." fears. God worked through our wonderful pastor to show me this verse in Psalm 112:7.
    "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord."
    The "evil tidings" here are fears of possible bad news, like the "what ifs" with which I was struggling. Our pastor reminded me that even if my very worst fears came true, God would not be caught by surprise. He would not be powerless. Instead, He would be upholding me, loving me, enabling me. So, instead of "what-ifing" I made the conscious choice (over and over!) to fix my heart on Him. And, oh, what a difference! I cannot count the number of times I recited this verse throughout my pregnancy and delivery. And, our God is so faithful! I marvel daily at His grace in giving us our Lydia Grace!
    I have been praying for you throughout your pregnancy - I keenly remember the great fatigue I dealt with last year. May you feel God's arms around you today, and be overwhelmed by His presence and strength during your little one's upcoming delivery!

    Some of my favorites:

    Even to your old age, I am He,
    And even to gray hairs I will carry you!
    I have made, and I will bear;
    Even I will carry, and will deliver you.
    ~Isaiah 46:4

    And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

    Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by your name;
    You are Mine.
    When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
    When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
    Nor shall the flame scorch you.
    For I am the Lord your God,
    The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
    ~ Isaiah 43:1b-3a

    Do not remember the former things,
    Nor consider the things of old.
    Behold, I will do a new thing,
    Now it shall spring forth;
    Shall you know it?
    I will even make a road in the wilderness
    And rivers in the desert.
    ~Isaiah 43:18-19

    Praying for you, my beautiful friend...

    Hello I am new to your beautiful blog. You have an amazing story and such a beautiful family.

    I love Philippians 4: 4-7:
    Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    I can't to see this beautiful little babe!

    Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
    —John 14:27

    Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.
    —2 Thessalonians 3:16

    Hi September! I came over from Lynnette's blog, what a blessing it is to meet you! Your testimony speaks of incredible things that God has done in you and your family. What a loving Father He is. I will be lifting you up to our precious Father throughout these days.
    Here are a couple of my favorites:

    Jeremiah 33:3
    3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

    Jeremiah 29:11-13
    11'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

    Praying for you Sister.

    Mt. 11:28-30
    "Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

    This is true whether you are in labor or in life. very comforting verse.

    Isaiah 40:11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.
