Remember this post? I freaked out because St. Gerard, the patron saint of expectant women, was chosen for me by the saints generator and I thought it might be a foreshadowing for my own pregnancy later this year.
And then in this post I discovered some really great insights, unrelated to pregnancy, for why he was probably chosen for me.
Well, today I realized that I have 14 women in my life right now who are either pregnant, gave birth 4 days ago, or just recently had an adoption fall through. Fourteen. Doesn't that sound like a lot to you...
So, I am reminded, once again, that everything is not about me. I am obviously called to be a prayer warrior this year for these women and their situations. What an honor. What a responsibility.
So ladies, namely,
Melissa, Maria, Kelly, Kaitlin, Lisa, Becky, Karen, Mary, Katie, Michelle, Amanda, Courtney, Mary, and Jennifer,
you remain in my prayers.
St. Gerard, pray for them.
And if you're reading this and are also pregnant, please comment to let me know and I will gladly add your name to the list. You may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
