Two dear ladies are expecting babies. One, named Sarah, is my bestest buddy in the world…
…and by “world”, I mean Alaska.
Sigh. I am not happy that she is in Alaska, but being a resigned & pious “embrace my crosses” type, I have forgiven her husband for moving her there.
The other dear lady is also named Sarah. What are the odds of that?!
(The odds are very good, actually. Sarah is an awesome name.)
Check that awesome, rockin’ belly! Sarah blogs at Amongst Lovely Things and the odds are very, very good that you know her already. I have never met Sarah “in real life” as they say, but sharing one’s heart & hopes & grimy floor gripes online is the next best thing to IRL and a good/consoling/thank you God! alternative to going for coffee.
Um. Where was I?
Oh yes! Sarah (the First) is expecting a wee girl. Sarah (the Second) is expecting twin boys. Both are due ANY DAY NOW, and for that reason I’m asking for your prayers. A prayer or two. A memorare. A decade. Whatever you can spare for these sweet, sweet women who no doubt are feeling a bit antsy & angsty & all things pre-delivery.
(Been there felt that VERY recently.)
Also, how cool is this? Mary of Better than Eden is hosting a virtual shower for Sarah (the Second) at her blog. Click on this picture to go to the shower and enter to win one of the many cool prizes.*
My personal favorite is the prayer calendar, though that quiltie by Charlotte & the “tenner” by Barbara both run a close, close second.
Pray, my friends, for my friends! Will you please? Please pretty please?
Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints…and in His very pregnant mommas.
