When I found out I was having twins,

I laughed, like Sarah, 

“Me, God?  A mother of four? 

Surely you must be kidding!”

When I found out I was having twins,

I questioned the angel, like Zechariah –

gave him a good ol’ lecture about the birds and the bees,

about all that is and is not possible.

When I found out I was having twins,

I accepted, like Mary,

the blessing I was given –

“Let it be unto me,

according to your word.”

God’s always, always, always full of suprises.  I’d love to hear how God has suprised you.  How did you react – did you laugh? cry? question? . . . feel free to leave a comment here or on A Field of Wild Flowers on facebook.
