Dear family, virtuous warriors and other readers, today marks the day I feel free to blog again. My life has been devoted to and focused on a wonderful blessing I have been unable to share in order to protect my own heart, my husband’s and my family’s. When my blog revolves around my personal growth, my latest understandings and what the Lord is teaching me it is too hard to skirt around a topic as colossal as a new baby. We are past the critical sensitive stage of this chapter and we pray that June will bring a child into our arms. 🙂 Tomorrow marks the first day of December but also our 11 week point, almost through our first trimester. I can hardly believe the time that has past since we first found out 7 weeks ago.
The past 2 months have been peppered with morning sickness, overwhelming tiredness and cravings for meat :), but also with an excitement and joy that bubbles up sporadically as my mind drifts back to the reality of what is happening inside my body. I am absolutely overcome with gratefulness and truly am blown away by the blessings that have filled my life this past year. It has nothing to do with how I have acted but all in how much the Lord loves us.
I take this time to look back and this is what I have sitting beside me as I type away.
This photo was taken at such a young age and now here we are, 24, having walked through trials, difficulties and tragedies together, married over a year with a child on the way. God is so faithful.
There have already been some hard mindsets to change and emotional mountains to climb these few weeks but we always come out victorious and boy have I been learning the good, the bad and the ugly about myself with this change 🙂 You never know what thoughts will surface until you are in a situation that draws them out. But isn’t that life? Changes, new opportunities, trials and blessings that teach us more and more about how weak we are as humans and how desperately insufficient we are without the Lord.
Love you all
