The Wonder of Pregnancy

“The waiting of pregnancy is like the waiting we do for God. We carry hidden within ourselves new life. Not simply in the sense of renewal, but new life particularized, personalized and uniquely enfleshed. We wait with unimaginable longing to see the face of the one we know to be already with us. Like an unborn child, the life of God grows unseen though profoundly felt. Insistently pushing and prodding us, enlarging the contours of our lives and our hearts, as intimate to us as our own breathing, yet utterly other, the divine presence waits to be born.”

– Wendy M. Wright
