Not much longer

She is nearly here, not long now!
I am feeling excited for the future, slightly scared, mostly great full. I see how God orchestrated all of this, her timing, the season, how much we have all grown while we wait. I've learned it isn't all about what I want, that I'm stronger than I think I am, I've become more dependent on God and less independent of him.
I've seen, yet again, how amazing my husband is, the sacrifices he makes quietly, how hard he works, how kindness, nurture,
Love, and understanding flow from him, he is such a great leader, theres always a kind word and an eagerness to help others even when he is going through his own trials, always putting others first and meeting needs.
I've seen my son grow, learning to love someone he can't see, learning first hand how his God hears his prayers and answers.
I feel blessed to see the nearly eight year journey of our family, the nearly four years of just Jake and I, the nearly four years of just the three of us, now the years of the four of us approaching I am grateful for God's timing, for all that I've learned, the patience I've acquired, the realization that I'm not in control and life's better off that way, I'm still learning these things but I'm not where I used to be.

As I pack my bags and ready myself for the arrival of my daughter, I am overwhelmed at how great my God is, I feel so blessed!

  1. God is so good, and his timing truly is perfect! I'm so excited for y'all. Will be saying prayers for you and baby girl as she makes her entrance into the world.
