Let us pray:
(sung) “Mother said, 'straight ahead,Not to delay, or be mislead.'I should have heeded her advice.But he seemed so nice.”
In the name of the Triune God. Amen.
I’m reminded again of a line from that song from Little Red Ridding Hood
And he showed me things, many beautiful things,That I hadn't thought to explore.They were off my path, so I never had dared.I had been so careful, I never had cared.And he made me feel excited..Well, excited and scared.
“19 weeks! Could be halfway if this baby comes on the early side of full term! The baby is at least ½ a pound now and 6 inches curled up or 9 inches full length (that’s a tomato or eggplant according to my apps). Sensory pathways are being developed in the brain, hair is sprouting on the head, and movements are becoming more intentional ;). This coming Friday is our anatomy scan when they look closely at every single organ, including all four chambers of the heart, and we get to find out the baby’s sex.”
And I know things now, many valuable things,Amen.
That I hadn't known before.
Do not put your faith in a cape and a hood.
They will not protect you the way that they should.
And take extra care with strangers,
even flowers have their dangers,
And though scary is exciting,
Nice is different than good.
Now I know, don't be scared.
Granny is right, just be prepared.
Isn't it nice to know a lot?
..And a little bit.. not.
