So… it’s three days until the due date of the lil baby girl! So exciting! I haven’t talked much about the pregnancy on here but it’s been smooth sailing since the beginning! By all the numbers, it’s been picture perfect/ textbook pregnancy! And I was never once sick – a huge blessing as I was for sure that whenever the time came for me to be preggo I’d be the one struck with sickness the whole time! Praise God that hasn’t been true! In fact, I feel abundantly blessed to have had such a smooth 9 months with this little one. And I mean that to the very core of my being and don’t take it for granted!
I believe that God’s given the blessing of such a smooth ride to me because I’ve never ever wanted to be pregnant… I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I can think of other methods besides my body being taken over! I’ve often said that I wish it were like a cabbage patch where you just go and pick one up! Or that God would drop a kid on my doorstep! I’ve also thought it’d be convenient to just go find a child on the street that needs to be loved! Of course, I know none of those can be done or at least not easily! So I thank my Father that He’s provided me with a pregnancy that has not been miserable in the slightest! I still have no swelling, I’m “all baby” (though I’ve done a decent job of fulfilling the Dr.’s order to gain some more pounds in the last few weeks thanks to an abundant supply of croissants and ice cream around here!) and I haven’t had much discomfort to complain about! I don’t say this to brag, but to give my thanks to God for allowing me to be comfortable and giving me such a perfect 9 months while He’s knit her together!
A very rich part of my testimony has been God’s timing in my life… it is ALWAYS perfect and I’ve seen so much of God’s faithfulness through the way He’s timed events in my life. So while I’ve thought about the wee one’s arrival, I began praying again for God’s timing! And the exciting thought passed through my head a few weeks ago, “He knows her birthday already!” WOW. To know that God’s already got that date in His calendar creates in me complete awe! So we wait for Him to reveal that date to us!
As her birth day nears, we are filled with excitement and feel that God’s prepared us for this role and we couldn’t be more thrilled! If you know K & I, you know we don’t get anxious or worry about much but we revel in the fact that we’re always in God’s hands, He’s the one with the Master Plan and He’s got the details covered! We hope that the same would be true in your life today!
So for now we wait in anxious anticipation for her arrival! Stay tuned because at some point in the near future, baby girl will make her appearance on here too!
