I thought I'd share a favorite scripture passage, that became especially important to me while I was pregnant with Gabriel.
2 Corinthians 4:7-10
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
that the surpassing greatness of the power may be of God & not we ourselves;
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed;
perplexed, but not despairing;
persecuted, but not forsaken;
struck down, but not destroyed;
always carrying about in our body the dying of Jesus,
that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body."
