3 years, 4 months.
There’s nothing like seeing your child’s sonogram picture for the first time. It’s like Christmas when you’re a kid.
That’s why I think this is a cool story…
Back in the year 2000, I attended a one year Bible college in Hudson, Florida with a guy named Bryce Olson. That summer I was a camp counselor with him and I just remember he was a cool person to be around.
Flash forward 14 years later. Now he and I are both in our early 30s and are Facebook friends.
He always has interesting pictures.
That was definitely the case last week when he posted this mash-up of his sonogram picture and a random stranger’s picture of the sky.
It’s worth checking it out so I’m spreading it Facebook and Twitter too.
I think it’s an epic idea- combining sonograms with other pictures.
How cool it would be if this idea went viral? I would love to see people start uploading their sonograms to Dubble and posting the results on social media with a special hash tag, like #dubbleappsonogram.
Maybe I should start promoting that idea to other people? I will close with this Facebook comment that my friend Bryce included with his “Dubble app sonogram”.
“So, I recently got this app called Dubble where it generates an image from a photo you submit along with someone else’s photo that is randomly selected.
What I LOVE about this image so much is that this sonogram photo that we had taken this past week was combined with a photo someone took of the sky.
To my wife @natalieohhh and I, this, which is our first pregnancy, involved over 2 years of trying, prayers, let-downs, tears, frustration, and answered prayers with ultimately God’s hand and perfect timing throughout it all.
We are people who live by faith and believe with all of our hearts it is God who gives life. We have been praying for His will be done and we are continuing to pray this as we have a long way still to go and a lifetime ahead of us to love this, already-living being.
My beautiful wife, Natalie is going to be such an incredible momma and I am asking for God’s strength to be a great father as well. We believe life is a miracle and we will never take this pregnancy for granted and we know it is a miracle.
I pray that whoever took this photo of the sky believes in the God of creation as well and knows the love of the Father, Son & Spirit. As we look to the sky may we all know that there is someone out there who not only created us but also cares and loves us so deeply and intimately.
