I have thought about this post for a while. What would I say? When would it be? It really makes everything more of a reality for me. Let me start at the beginning of the story. Flint and I have been married for six years now! I really don't believe that when I say it!!! So, last summer we started to talk about and pray about starting a family. I never want to put time constraints on God's plans, so I wanted to be sensitive to what He wanted in our lives. I have always had a strong desire to have a child of my own, yet I still did not feel the sense of emptiness that many people talk about experiencing. I guess I was at a place of complete contentment with where God had me in my life. However, we both still felt that it was the right time to start a family. So, the journey began last fall. There have been many discouraging months and the harder you try, the journey can even become heartbreaking at times! At the beginning of March, many of you know that the Hubbie and I were separated a lot of the time due to a job change. He was in Texas and I was still in Arkansas. In May, we finally loaded up everything we own and moved down to Home Sweet Waco. The idea of a baby was definitely put on the back burner. We were completely consumed with a new job and getting settled into our new house. It is funny how God works.......He always seems to have a better plan for us than those we make for ourselves!
After a trip to Fayetteville for the 4th of July, I came home and took a test. To our surprise.....................
Yes, you read that right! We are expecting our first baby March 13th and we couldn't be more thrilled!!! I am twelve weeks and I am still shocked when I see that picture!
I prayed for this child and the Lord has given me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27
Thank you, Lord, for this precious baby! We feel so blessed that you have chosen us to be it's mommy and daddy!
