I was reading in my bible this morning in Mark 5, and it's the part where Jesus is doing miracles but asking people not to tell. Well, there is a part where Jesus heals a girl that just died at the age of 12. Can you imagine? Family is at the house, crying over the girl and Jesus comes and raises her from the dead. That would just be so incredibly cool to see and experience. What a relief for the mom and dad. It's like a second chance at life. I wonder what she died of? We have so much medicine and new things today but back then, even just having a fever could take you to the brink of death or over. You know, there was not Motrin. Even giving birth was so much more dangerous back then and mortality rates were high. Scary! Being that there was no birth control, only natural family planning (if there was), I wonder how high the mortality rate was? There was no c-section right? Okay, I know it's way overused, the c-sections these days, but there WERE cases back then where a woman really did need one so instead the baby would die or both mom AND baby. Scary! I'm thankfully for how far we've come. :) Having babies is exciting and less worrysome. Could chance you're walking out of that hospital alive.
No, I'm not pregnant. Just having fun thinking about babies.
