“What are you doing Sarah?” Abraham asked, as he grabbed his tablet and sat down beside her.
“I’m googling the possibility of having children after ninety years of age,” she replied.
“You still don’t believe I heard from the Lord, do you Sarah?”
“Well, it says right here women can only produce up until their last period of uncleanness. You know I passed that stage long time ago.”
“Yea, but you know all things are possible with God. I chose to believe the message the Angel gave us, that I would be the father of a great nation through a son given to us.
“Anyway, just out of curiosity, I think I’ll google the chances of a man having children at 100 years old. Um, it says, that although a male is not as fertile as when in the prime of life, he can still produce seed throughout his life-time. What do you say we give it a try my sweet, beautiful wife?” he said as he reached over and gently put his hand on her knee.
“Oh, get away from me you old goat. Is that all you can think about, having babies?” she playfully brushed his hand away, while giving him a sheepish little smile.
“Just a few more days now Abraham till we see that wonderful son the Lord has miraculously given us”, Sarah reminded him as she again googled information on her tablet.
“What are you looking up now?”
“I am looking up the name Isaac. According to this google, Isaac means laughter. Remember how we laughed when that Angel told us we were going to conceive at our age?"
“I sure do, but I guess the Lord has the last laugh. I can just hear him saying, ‘Is there anything too hard for Me when you believe?’ No more googling for me,” remarked Abraham.
“I still think there is a wealth of information out there,” Sarah continued her search. “However, I’m not going to believe everything written on these pages anymore.”
Abraham nodded his head in agreement. “Maybe when were gone, one of our descendants can make some good use of these two tablets!”
