Miracle Monday


Hello, and welcome to another miracle monday. Today, I am going to share the miracle of me. I truly feel with all of my heart that I was a miracle baby. 44 years ago, when my momma found out that she was pregnant with her fourth child, she was quite surprised. I was an unexpected baby, but she was happy. But, when she shared the news with my dad, he was anything but happy. He wanted her to get rid of me, but at that time, there was no such thing as an abortion. He made her go to her doctor, and ask him if there was anything she could do to get rid of me. The doctor gave her some pills to take, he said if she took half of them, she would start cramping and bleeding, and she would lose me. My momma went home, and she took all of those pills. She started cramping really bad, and bleeding. But, she did not lose me. At different times throughout her pregnancy, my dad beat her. At one point, he was trying to push her out of a high story window, and would have, if the police had not busted through the door at that moment. God truly blessed over me, and my momma. I was born with a birth defect, my appendix is in my back. But, other than that, I was fine. I praise God for my life, and for miracles.

Wow Denise there has been a battle for your life from the very beginning. That tells me the Lord has a plan for you, that you are VERY wanted. There was a lady I was in Scotland with who's Mum when she found out she was pregnant with her tried to abort her, but it didn't work. She was in great shape spiritually over the years, but there was this struggle she had with feeling not worthy or rejected at times which stemmed from the battle in the womb. You are a treasure.
