Hey Friends 🙂
When was the last time you were completely suprised by God?!
11 years ago today I was pregnant with baby #2. Our doctor completed an ultrasound, and assured us that we were 100% having a girl.
We were blessed to have three baby showers for “Baby Rebecca”. We painted “her” room in bright, beautiful colors and filled the soon-to-be nursery with pink onesies, frilly dresses, booties and more!
Soon the big day arrived! I delivered my new precious baby (without any drugs, I might add ~ not by my choice…another story!) ~ and quickly turned to the nurse and asked…
“Does she have red hair??”
The nurse replied, “HE DOES!”
“HE does????” I shockingly replied.
After the initial shock (and desperate attempt to come up with a boy name!) ~ we immediately rejoiced in God’s provision and sense of humor! Benjamin James Bultema was born! 🙂
I’ll never forget when Rob called the hospital soon after Benj’s birth and said, “Cindy, I told everyone at 9 AM & 11 AM services, and can’t wait to do it again at 6”. For many years, folks would say, “Oh, is this your baby girl? Snicker. snicker.”
That’s ok ~ God knew EXACTLY what He was doing!!!
Happy, Happy Birthday Benj!!! We love you and thank God every day for making you uniquely you ~ and totally sports crazy, 100% boy!
And I’m also grateful you love a good celebration ~ just like your mom! 🙂
When was the last time you were completely suprised by God?! I’d love to hear you story!
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*, my friend! Have a wonderful, joy-filled weekend!
Sweet blessings –
P.S. I love my husband John’s note to Benj on FB today…”Happy Birthday Tiger. That’s what I called you when I gave you your first bath because you didn’t have a name yet!!” 🙂
