Logan--my third baby in 4 years.
Logan--when I heard the news that I was pregnant with him, I hit a hard, almost impossible to shake stumble.
Logan--whose actual birth was a miracle that opened my eyes to the grace and mercy that is always present in Christ.
Logan--whose smile lights my world in the most dark of days.
If I were "liberated" and "free" and "practical" in my thinking by the world's standards, I would have put my foot down and aborted that baby.
Thank you Jesus that you never let that option creep into my mind. Thank you that even in my haze of "I can't do this!" I had people who love and support me. People who helped my eyes turn back to YOU, and YOUR glory, and YOUR plan.
Because without that, I might not have Logan. I might have been a victim of the world's thinking: this baby wasn't planned. Wasn't convenient. Wasn't worth the trouble.
What would the world be without my Logan? I can't imagine.
And neither could you, Jesus. And that's why he's here.
Because You are bigger than an overwhelmed mother's fears and failings. You ARE enough.
Please help other mothers who find themselves where I was that fall of 2001 see the pure joy that's coming 7 years down the road. Help them to surrender THEIR hopes and THEIR desires to you.
Because Logan was--is--will always be WORTH IT.
Thank you for my son, Lord.
