Double blessing

Doris had been married 22 years and had never had a baby.  She bore the shame of infertility, as many women do in the Highlands of PNG.  The Lord heard her prayers.  About 9 months ago she got pregnant.  This week she delivered not one, but two beautiful baby boys!!!  How is that for the cool story of the week?

"Instead of your shame
you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
and everlasting joy will be yours."
~ Isaiah 61:7

Certainly Doris has traded her disgrace for a double portion!
