Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.” And she added, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.” Genesis 21:5-7
I have always liked this passage and when I became pregnant I appreciated it even more. Now that Eva is here, the verse only gets better with greater understanding. I cannot describe God’s grace and sovereignty with words, but he has displayed these and so much more throughout my pregnancy, delivery, and in the life of Eva. I have spent the week laughing with joy.
It may have been a joke, but I guess God took me seriously. I am so thankful that He did.
