Pastor Mark’s eNote – One March, Two Aprils, Three Miracles
So, there’s this really pregnant giraffe named April—15 months worth of pregnant, in fact—and any day now (they’ve been saying for weeks), she will give birth to a 150-pound, 6-foot-tall baby. And, oh yeah, she’ll do that while standing up. Now, I find all of that really amazing, though I’m told it happens all the time, which explains why there are still giraffes around. What sets April apart from all those other giraffe moms, however, is that something like 30 million people are watching her on a live Internet feed, including two folks in the Westmoreland household.
It’s riveting. She eats a lot; she paces around; and she looks a little uncomfortable, which I guess is to be expected if you’re in the latter stages of a 15-month pregnancy. Otherwise, not much is happening. But we know it WILL happen, and so we watch and wait.
