You are not an accident. God in His sovereignty spoke you into existence through the physical union of your parents. He planned their parenthood. May 12th is my birthday and I honor my parents for their part in my conception and birth. Through the years they nurtured me and openly expressed their love.
They honestly shared that I came along before they expected. First of all my older sister Lauree, born only seventeen months earlier still deserved a lot of attention. Would she be ready for a younger sister or brother? She also needed extra rest because she battled bronchitis. Would I disturb her? I'm not sure if the solution was wise, but they spoiled me so I would be contented and not wake her.
I am grateful to God for my parents. "Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2-3 NKJ)." Through the years I will recall and agree; it is well with me.
