Three years ago, when I was pregnant with Tiana at 30 weeks, I was on a Holy Land tour. My doctor was hesitant to let me go at first, but she did give me her blessing before I left. By God’s grace, I was able to walk around everywhere without difficulty. In fact, it was great exercise! And the food was healthy — veggies, fruit, yoghurt, flat bread…Of course, the more wonderful aspect of the trip was being with Edric and my family, experiencing the Bible come to life.
I was going through my old files when I found a digital scrapbook I made of our time in the Holy Land. Thought I would share it here as a reminder that God delights to bless his children. Edric and I never dreamed of going on a trip like this. We thought it was way beyond our budget for travel expenses. But, my parents spontaneously decided to treat all of us siblings who were based in the Philippines. Pregnant or not, I was determined to go! Praise God, I came back in one piece with the baby safe in my womb.
