First Trimester Down!

13 week pic of me

14 week pic of baby

I am feeling blessed and so very hopeful!
The doctors are checking me every 2 weeks
to make sure everything is okay this time around.
That is nice especially to be able to see the baby develop,
but I do not need the doctors to assure me....
My hope is in the Lord.
My mind is consumed by His grace.
And I believe in His faithfulness.

In a couple of weeks we will find out the gender.
And my feelings are mixed.
I want another son.
I dont know when and it doesnt  have to be now
but I know God will fill that void...someday.
I would love to have a girl.
A new beginning.
Pink never really crossed my mind until recently
And it would be nice.
Whatever it may be, God knew all along.
He knew that this would be our perfect child.
 The child He has called us to love.
And I will certainly do plenty of that.

A Momma's Love

Growing up with my amazing mom
I saw love at a deeper level
A love that is irreplaceable and unchanging
Love through acts of kindness and words
Love through hugs and a shopping splurge
There is something about a momma’s love
That only she can give and I still crave

Now having experienced being a mom
I have felt love at a deeper level
Even though it was while I carried our child,
It was still irreplaceable
And unchanging
And there was something about that love
Something that I still crave

I’m now a mom again
And this love is even deeper
This love is stronger  
It protects
And It patiently awaits
What a glorious day it will be
When I look into my child’s eyes
And love…

I understand the love you have for me now
And I love you even more having experienced
just a glimpse of what it’s like to love a child
Thank you for setting such a godly example
of what love is supposed to look like.

4 letters...

We recieved the exciting news over the Christmas holidays.
What a sweet way to end a year of such pain and sorrow.
We know this will be a struggle to keep our mind focused
on God's promises and protection when fear creeps in,
but we are hopeful and believe in a BIG God.

"I prayed for this child
and the Lord has granted me
what I asked of him."
1 Samuel 1:27
