"For you formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother's womb."
Due date is a week from tomorrow and we are so excited about meeting this lil' blessing that the Lord has given us!
I'm continuing to feel well and find my heart overflowing with gratitude for such a wonderful husband. The other night I told him how thankful I was for his understanding and patience with me and he replied: "And who was patient with me during the last several years during my intense school schedule?" We take turns ministering to the needs of the other!
Seasons of love can be such a beautiful thing, so I'm trying to take the time to enjoy and appreciate my man and what we have TODAY. Our lives are about to drastically change. They already have, somewhat, as I've been slowing down significantly the last month and just can't do everything that I'm used to being able to do.
On one hand I find myself wishing for the energy I used to have...or that my feet didn't ache so much...or that I didn't tire so easily... but instead of focusing on what I used to be able to accomplish, I choose to focus on the miracle of feeling life inside and what a precious gift I've been given! And Dan daily impresses me with his thoughtfulness and understanding as he spoils me and demonstrates his love for me in so many ways and continually encourages and prays for me. I'm incredibly blessed and humbled that I get to explore this adventure of parenting with such an amazing man of God by my side!
"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us,
that we should be called children of God!"
1 John 1:3
And many thanks to Susan for capturing these precious moments for us. You did such a fabulous job!
