    God is still on the throne and Prayer Changes things...

    This is the saying that Dr. Noah Hutchings opens up with before he begins his radio show every week day for Southwest Radio Church.

    This statement is very true, very very true. God is still in charge and praying does make a difference.

    I married my wife in 2005, she has a son from a previous marriage, who is my son. He was three at the time. I love that boy with all my heart and we don't use step-dad, my first name will suffice, I consider myself his dad, even though his father is still involved in his life. I love him dearly. When my wife and I married, we wanted children right away. Needless to say, it never happened and we continued trying and seeing doctors. Apparently the problem had nothing to do with her and all to do with me.

    We have been praying since day one, for God's time, never losing faith, never not trusting and believing it, that His Will be done in our lives. My test results only got worse with time. I adjusted every aspect of my life, what I eat, what I drink and so on. Only got worse.

    I went to a specialist and his results were worse than the ones we had previously. He said that he could perform a procedure that I needed to have done because I was experiecing discomfort and pain, that may help in the other areas. I can't spell the name of the procedure, but he said he didn't think it would fix my results completely or immediately, but it would eleviate the pain. He said it would take dramatic changes to get my tests to be right.

    Along with his procedure, I had double hernia surgery this past May. Basicially four surgeries at one time. With God's grace, I recovered quickly. According to the doctor it would be at least 3 months before any changes would be visible with the procedure that was done. So we knew it might be a while before we would be adding to the family, but we knew it was still all in His hands and on His time.

    Needless to say, yesterday I bought a cheapo Equate Pregnancy Test from Wal-Mart, because of a hunch my wife had and it came back positive. We were a little leary about the results because the test was like I said, cheap, so we spent four times as much on another test and got the same results.

    Now I sit, in my office, staring a picture from her doctor's office of a little black dot on a gray back ground. Apparently that is our child, in a little sack.

    We are so excited and over joyed and over whelmed with the Blessings of God and what He has done for our family. My son is going to be a big brother and I am over joyed.


    I did not know where to post this, but I thought I would share this with my new found friends, brothers and sisters in Christ. I truly love all of you and enjoy learning and communicating with you all. I realize that some of the things that I say are over board and need editing. Please Forgive me for my personal attacks or the outrageous comments and please pray for my wife and our baby.

    God's Blessing are not up for debate, nor is Prayer. This is a discussion about what Jesus Christ, OUR Lord and Savior, has done for OUR lives, YOUR life.

    Thank you, Baptist Board, for providing us all with a platform with which to discuss things that are close to OUR hearts, God and family.

    Congratulations to you and your wife! We, too, just had an ultrasound Tuesday (my wife's 9 weeks along), and it truly is an amazing thing to see a child the size of a strawberry with a tiny heartbeat. God is truly amazing.

    :godisgood:

    23 years ago I was sure I would never have a child. We tried, but nothing happened. I had given up. But, then one day it happened! I wasn't able to have any more, but I got a beautiful son who will be 22 in September. He just recently took a job 100 miles away and he's gone and out on his own. It's been tough on mom! But, he calls me whenever he needs to talk and I'm thankful for that. We are very close.

    May God bless your family!

    A good site to subscribe to is www.pregnancyweekly.com
    It will give you and your wife a weekly email updating the development of the baby, along with ultrasound pictures at each week. If I recall, 4 weeks the baby is the size of a peanut...
