In The Waiting...


In the waiting, there is wonder and excitement.  Every tummy twinge sends off a squiggly mark of question in my mind.  Could this be it?  Will TODAY be the DAY I meet our 3rd born child?

I've rushed these moments in the past.  I've learned from my mistakes of wanting to rush what can't be rushed.  Push what was not meant to be pushed.

There is beauty and wonder in the waiting.  God has been teaching me many lessons along this journey.

Patience.
Endurance.
Trust.

I hope to come out of this pregnancy, this labor, a stronger woman.  Not to glorify myself, but to LIFT HIM HIGH and GLORIFIED!


Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded 
that God had power to do what he had promised.
Romans 4:20-21

Thank you!  YOU...  {for being part of this journey with me}
