Only God

Yes, it's been a long, long, long time since I've put up a new blog post. But today I feel the words coming out of me.

I had my annual physical today. YUCK - not my favorite thing to do. My doctor is 25 miles from me, and with gas prices being what they are, I've been wondering if I shouldn't just get a doctor closer to my home and work. But he's been with me through thick and thin, and I can't seem to do it just yet.

And I don't think I was supposed to do it this year. See in the midst of this routine physical, God reminded me how blessed I am. My doctor was reviewing my 3-inch thick file, updating info, and he wondered out loud how many laparoscopies he had performed on me. I have lost count as well - it was a long time ago. After his comment, I told him my son will graduate from high school this year. He looked up in disbelief, and said, "You are lucky." I told him, "I know it." But I should have said, "I am blessed."

See it took my husband and me 10 years to have a child. Back then, after all those surgeries, my doctor told me there comes a time where you realize you have to stop and consider other options. He would do one more laparoscopy, and one more was all we needed. Within 9 months, I was pregnant! When I called my doctor with the news, he got on the phone and said, "How did you do it? I mean I know how you did it, but what did you do?" Nothing...only God.

We could only have the one child - but that was enough. Now that miracle is getting ready to graduate high school, has had a faith awakening by the Holy Spirit and is planning his future. Unbelievable. Only God.
