A Prayer of Thanks
Sherry Thimijan | Preschool Director/Teacher
The due date for our second child was August 31st. By the middle of August we were ready and excited to grow our family. The baby did not arrive on time, but came very late. Our son was born on October 2nd.
Our very old fashion Doctor said, "this baby will be born when he is ready." September was a very long month for us. Every day his sister would get up and asked if the baby came during the night. By the middle of September we were having fears that something was wrong with the baby.
There were many prayers for a healthy child, strength for me, my health, and patience. The Lord answered these prayers with a frantic rush to the hospital, and an hour later I had a beautiful 9 pound 8 ounce boy. The old fashion Doctor gave me our son and with my hand on the baby and my husband's hand on mine, he put his hand on top of ours and prayed a prayer of thanks.
