it took nine months

nine months ago, i blogged about a dear friend who wondered why she got pregnant at a time when she and her husband have given up all hope to have another baby after 8 years of trying. why at a time when she was very busy with her career and preparing for a big move to another country. back then, she asked why, why now? no one really knew the answers then. except of course our god, the giver of life, who knew exactly why and why then.

today, nine months since, i received a wonderful text message from my friend which read "lucas javier was born today... by natural delivery." incredulous! blessed with an adorable 9-year old daughter, i'm sure they secretly wished for a baby boy. she also continuously prayed oh so hard to give birth naturally even if her doctor already scheduled her for a caesarian section. it's just incredulous! our giver of life gives beyond our wildest imagination.

and now we know why then. because now nine months later, they are well-settled after the big move. because now, her career is stable and going well. because now, her 9-year old autistic daughter is gaining independence they thought would never be possible. because now, they can care for their newborn son without these stresses which god has taken care of in their behalf. god's timing is truly precise. his ways are perfect.

all praise and honor be to the giver of life who breathes life to the lives he has given. how wonderful it is to witness the unfailing faith of people who continuously pray. i am a work in progress learning to pray the way i should. in awe and with gratitude, i experience how prayer works in the lives of other people as it does in mine.

God's time is perfect all the time. And all the time, our faith is built up.
