UNKNOWN!  What a prompt for #write31days and wondering how I was going to handle this one today, but I think I know because I have not had time to reveal to you all the sex of my twin grand babies.

Last week the unknown became known at least for two of the grand babies on the way.  Our son and daughter-in-law are expecting twins in March and they are boys.  They have a 3-year old son and our daughter and son-in-law have a 20-month old son so we are going to have four precious little grandsons soon.  See those two blue layers in the cake.  Yep, we had to cut it to see if it was blue or pink or two blues or two pinks.  Was so, so exciting and joyous.

I can only laugh thinking about our son who loves to hunt and fish raising these three boys up.  I hope they all love sports like he does, but I know God had a plan for these precious ones even before the beginning of time, and they may just love being the studious type.

I also laughed this weekend as we were driving out of town with the three year old and we were listening to Father Abraham.  It starts off Father Abraham had many sons, many sons had Father Abraham.  I’m spilling the beans but some months back when the kids had lost some babies, I walked through this house with my hands raised, bawling and reminding God of His promises, and I asked He bless us just as He did Abraham.  I sit there smiling and remembering my prayer.  Perhaps that’s why the twins are boys to carry on my son’s name.

We will find out in a couple more weeks what our daughter’s baby is, and so glad it will no longer be an unknown.  Can’t wait to see what God’s plan is.  I know He knew before He formed them in the womb.  All we ask is that they are healthy in every way.  Boy or girl it does not matter ever.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”  Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV)
