Yesterday afternoon the 21 year old daughter of the married couple from Ukraine came with them to my class at the high school. They had just come from the doctor’s office for her check up before she gives birth. She is due any day now. The doctor told her that she is close. When she told me that, I thought-“I hope this doesn’t happen during my class.”
I am happy that the baby did not come during my class. I am also happy for the family that they can have something wonderful happen after having to flee the war in Ukraine, for her and her husband. the birth of their first child and for her parents, the birth of their first grandchild.
My only plan for if she had gone into labor during my class was to call 911.
The family is eagerly awaiting the baby coming,
It makes me think about the 2nd coming of Jesus. Is the 2nd coming of Jesus something we are eagerly awaiting? We do not know when he will return, but we can look forward to Jesus coming again. It is something we need to be prepared for as Romans 13:11 says:
And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
We do not know when Jesus will return, but one thing we do know is that each day brings us one day closer to his return.
Today I am grateful for two things, that Jesus is coming back-hopefully soon, and that my friend from Ukraine did not have the baby during my class. ::)
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

I love Rom 13:11.
I have times I wish Jesus would come back right now but then I think about the people who are not ready
That would have been an interesting class if she had 🙂
Yes quite the lesson for the class lol
I’m happy she didn’t have the baby in class too. 😀 But I love this analogy. Such a perfect way to describe the coming of Christ!
Maranatha Lord Jesus
I think you could deliver the baby big brother lol.
I would probably pass out first lol
What a blessing to arrive here and have the baby! God bless them!
I wonder if she will have the baby on Nov 3rd. That is her father’s birthday
Keep us posted!
will do 🙂
