A Time To Be Born...

I am 41 weeks pregnant today, and so I’m caught in yet another round of waiting. I started blogging about waiting a couple of years ago, and since then, I’ve realized that it’s just a normal part of life. The good news is that I’m getting better at it! It’s not always easy, especially if I have to find something that fits to wear to church one more time… and I can’t help but feel a little like a watched pot by all the people I know and love… but God is faithful and I’ve been really encouraged by praise songs such as “In the Waiting” and “Everlasting God.”


“There is a time for everything… a time to be born.” Ecclesiastes 3:2.


So while I wait, I play with my kids, get together with friends, organize my home, go on extra dates with Lee, get small projects done I wouldn’t make time for ordinarily, and enjoy the feeling of a baby growing inside of me. It really is a miracle, and I’m so thankful to be blessed to be a part of it.


“Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him.” Ps 37:7a

And while you're waiting I think you should definitely post a picture! There is nothing more amazing than a really pregnant woman!
