This was the day

Today 3 years ago was the day that was one of the most pivotal days of our life.

Today was the day I ovulated the egg that would a few hours later become our first son (I know this because of my almost obsessive charting of my cycle).

This was the day God opened my womb after years of infertility.

Today was the day God performed one of the greatest miracles of my life.

In the secret, quiet place, today was the day that God began Gideon's life, He began to knit him together in my womb. 

Today was the day that God breathed life and a soul into the tiny person of my son. 

This was today that the Lord gave us Gideon.

Today began Gideon's life, this earthy life that God ordained to last only little over 33 weeks.

This was the day the Lord gave us a sweet son who would be the source of extravagant joy and immense hope.

We didn't find out about Gideon this day 3 years ago, we wouldn't know about him for a couple more weeks. Little did we know at that time, but this was the day that our life was forever changed. For the better.

This was the day God created love inside of me.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:15-16
