This has been true is many situations in my life and even so still. I often forget that when I ask the Lord for things that he doesn't always say yes, or give me an answer immediately. We, as a family, are anticipating many changes, but I'll Praise Him While I Wait.
No one has shared their stories... and as humbled as I am to admit it.. I miss being on the computer. I still don't have one, and are borrowing Mama J's at the moment. AND since I thanked those who left comments, NO ONE left anymore comments.... don't be afraid... share.. share.. No? Well that's ok too, I'll still keep writing to the grandparents who live 7 miles down the road and/or the ones who live on the other side of the country.
Us? Well we're anticipating the births of these babies finally. My brother's baby is scheduled to be delivered this week. I have given this great thought. They have asked me to be in the room, after much persuasion for me, and I am filled with more emotion that I thought possible. I am terribly excited and as equally terrified about not being a good aunt. I want desperately for these children to feel the way about, that I do about them. Either way GOD is good and I just want them to be healthy. Hopefully the next time I post I will post some pictures of my nephew.
The niece is scheduled for delivery 2 weeks from my nephews... it's going to be a big couple of weeks. This will be twins sisters baby. There are not words to describe the emotion behind that front, so I'll just say that I am equally excited about her arrival.
Easter is coming up and of course we are on the hunt for matching dresses. I find it incredible that I LOVE dressing my girls alike and they are not twins, and hated it when my mom did it to my sister and me, when we are twins... but I have great hopes of matching dresses, swimsuits, etc. I hope that as you shop and find your eggs, bunnies, candy and beautiful dresses that the true reason behind Easter finds it way into your lives. He rose, and Lives so that we may live eternally with him. What a gift, for which I am very unworthy.
What are your Easter plans? Church? Big Easter Egg Hunt? If you don't have any we will have a Spring Fling on Sunday March 29th at Ola High School with food, egg hunts, games, etc. Either way I hope Spring Break and Easter find you with tons of love, and fine fellowship with your families.
* Last But Certainly Not Least*
Have you seen Fireproof? If not you really should. What a wonderful lesson: The Love Dare. We are so focused on "Us" that we often forget to give credit to GOD, and the rest falls by the wayside. I highly recommend it for all couples.
Today I am Thankful For:
The babies coming into this family and the world. The Lord is good, it's that simple.
My husband: He is such a good man, and I love him EVERYDAY... GOD made him especially for me and I am beyond grateful!
Our Picnic at the Park. Mama J suggested a wonderfully fun afternoon with the family and it makes my heart swell to see where we have been and where we are going. Again, the Lord is good, it's just that simple.
All of you who read and follow this blog. I like reading the few comments left, and feeling like we're telling each other stories.
The ability to stay with my children everyday. Other people, and sometimes even I, call our decision into question b/c in order for me to stay at home we sacrifice a lot. But, everyday GOD provides our every need, the other stuff is not important and if it is; will come in when necessary.
Exercise: Just recently I started this and some days I HATE it, but most often I love what it provides. Thanks to the quite 30 minutes of exercise everyday I feel like I new person.
Have a Great Week... comment, email, whatever. Hopefully when we see each other next I will be introducing you to my very first nephew.
