Micah 4:1-4/ Psalm 11/ John 14:15-27
My parents were in elementary school during the Korean War. My mother’s family had to retreat to the south, and that is where my grandmother gave birth to my youngest uncle. The baby was put in a big box because they didn’t have a crib. That is how my uncle gained his nickname “Big Box.”
My aunts and uncles still call him Big Box and laugh, but when you think about it, it is no joke experiencing pregnancy and childbirth during a war. I am not a biological mother, but I know how serious childbirth is. I have watched a lot of childbirth stories on Call the Midwife. Can we imagine how scared my grandma must have been?
