3 Words…

Filed under: Daily Life, Prayer Requests — jodygambrell @ 10:33 pm

Jaime woke me up (early) this morning with 3 words that will, no doubt, change my our lives from here forward. “Jody, I’m pregnant!” I have to admit, I can’t remember my response. I think I said, “No you’re not” and then rolled over. After the words sunk in a little, I asked her how she knew. SHE WAS SO EXCITED. I was barely awake when she showed me the results of the early pregnancy test. My eyes never adjusted so I didn’t see the results, but I could tell by her excitement that she was for real. For some reason, I was so skeptical. I think I just didn’t want to get her hopes up if for some reason the test was false. Even now, at 11:15 p.m., the reality of Jaime being pregnant has not sunk in. She went to her Dr. this afternoon to get some blood work done. We should have “official” word from the Dr. tomorrow. I’m feeling a bunch of different emotions right now: excitement, fear, anticipation, fear, worried, fear, etc… I have not been in a hurry to have kids. We’ve been married just over 2 years and I’ve had the attitude that we’ll have plenty of time to have kids. I think when I turned 30 in March, the fact that I am not a kid anymore finally sunk in. Jaime has been ready for over a year. People have always told us that you’ll never be ready for kids. Ready or not, here we come I guess. I guess for the first time, I’m actually excited about becoming a dad. Pending the “official” results, we will probably tell our parents on Mother’s Day. Wow, this seems to be real.

I pray that God will give Jaime a great pregnancy. I pray for the baby’s health. I pray that this baby will live a life that glorifies his or her Creator. I pray that this baby will make a difference in this world for the Kingdom of God. I pray that God will equip Jaime and myself with the strength and ability to be Godly parents. I pray that our marriage will be strengthened by the birth of this child.

I praise my God for this miracle. Did I mention that I’M SCARED!!!!



  1. Jody, so is it public now? haha. You and Jaime know that Blair and I will be praying for yall, and the baby. I can’t wait, and yall know that anything we can ever do we are a phone call away. Don’t be scared, as long as you know God is in control everything will be good. P
