Do you remember my last post? The one in which I wrote a bunch of sentences about the people/opportunities in my life right now that I'm thankful for?
The list just grew by leaps and bounds.
Well, I'm not leaping or bounding anywhere (other than in my heart and in my head).
For one, five months ago tomorrow, the husband and I were wed! Love that man :)
Last weekend, we made this discovery.
To be fair, I actually made the discovery before the husband did.
It took EVERYTHING in me not to shout the news out right there in front of our guest.
(Yes, I totally took the test while we had a friend over.)
After finding the evidence bow-tied and placed squarely on the bed where he couldn't miss it, he took the news quite well.
We are overwhelmed with happiness.
Overcome with thankfulness.
Almost speechless with the immensity of this gift.
I read somewhere recently that we should wait to share this news until a few more weeks have gone by, and I know others have followed this suggestion.
I almost waited.
Then, I remembered.
God, the author and perfecter of everything, created this new life inside of me.
He chose me to carry and us to raise His child.
He is forming this new little one (who is between the size of an orange seed and a sweet pea!), knitting him/her together as I type. **Psalm 139:13** Right now, the baby's heart is being formed.
He knew this wee one even before conception.
He rejoices over this precious babe.
I won't live in superstition. Or fear. Or doubt.
I will live in hope. In prayer. In thanks. In trust.
Pray and praise with us during this new step in the journey?
