Special News from the Dunham Home

I can hardly beleive it. My wife could not have given me a better birthday gift. It was 4:30 in the morning, and I was coming home from work. The lights were all out in our house and I was trying my best to be quiest, so as not to wake my slumberign wife. Suddenly the bathroom light came on and there she stood in the middle of the hallway wide awake.

"I have something to tell you," she said.
Thoughts went racing through my brain about all the possible bad news that I was about to hear. Someone was in the hospital, or someone had died, or we had been robbed, or some other horrific event was all I could think of. But I could not have been more wrong. She came bounding down the hallway with something behind her back. I was relieved to see it was not bad news as the smile spread across her face. Slowly out from behind her back she pulled a pregnancy test revealing the wonderful news: We're pregnant!

It's amazing, wonderful news. After a year and a half of trying, facing frustration and disappointment, seeing infertility specialists the Lord has finally seen fit to grant us a child. Soon I will be someone's daddy! The Lord has been so gracious to my family, and has taught us much. But in continually He reveals Himself to be the good God who not only saved me from the wrath and hell I deserve as a sinner before Him, but one who also gives good gifts throughout this life.

Rejoice with us friends, and pray for us as we await the arrival of this new addition to the Dunham family.
