July 13 Christ in the Womb
The Word was made Flesh . . . Following Baby Jesus in the womb
Fetal movement, also called ‘quickening’, is usually felt between 16 and 20 Weeks of pregnancy. The time and frequency is different for every woman and from one pregnancy to another. One Baby may be more active than another. Baby weight has doubled and is about 3½ ounces.
Baby’s approximate due date: December 25, 201
The Word Made Flesh for July 11-12, 2015
Late in Luke Chapter 1, we get the story of Elizabeth hearing the news of Mary's pregnancy, and the quickening of John the Baptist, who leaped for joy in his mother's womb.
Sometime between 16 and 20 weeks, our little girl is old enough to react to her environment. At just 3.5 ounces, she's already beginning to move, and react to the sound of her mother's voice. Who is to say this is not a person with a soul at this stage? In many countries in Europe, she's a person with rights; but not in Oregon.
Baby is due December 25, 2015, sharing a due date with the birthday of our Lord Jesus Christ.
