How does one begin to share their heart on something they have been busting at the seams to share for months? I have so struggled with writing words in this post that are worthy of something that is nothing short of...miraculous.
To sum up our emotion--We are over the moon!!!
Prayers on our knees, tears, and overwhelming joy!
As many of you have experienced in your own pregnancies, I am more sick than I have ever been in my life. Trips to the ER, non stop illness and sleepless nights, but somehow it just can't stamp out the intense joy our souls are singing.
The most brilliantly stunning hand of Jesus I have seen so far is how you can pray for a sweet soul to grow in your womb for months, and then literally...in that moment that you are blessed with the news that this dream is indeed reality, your heart swells with a passion for this unborn life and you INSTANTLY become a mother. It brings me to tears just typing this.
You are so overwhelmed with love for that tiny soul you want to do whatever you have to, to keep it safe and healthy. And then all of the ills and sickness are a mere mirage compared to this blessing.
Of course we are one of billions to give birth over centuries and my words are not profound, but I truly believe God's incomprehensible love and grace is new every morning with each new life. Each sweet tiny new soul on this earth is a miracle and a love package from God to be celebrated as if it were the first time.
We praise Him for this blessing and would cherish your prayers in this time. We are out of our minds thrilled to share this journey with you and your families and learn from you along the way!
Of course we know that with this joy trials may come in the upcoming months, and we are ready for His Will be done.
As we wait, we are praying this over Baby K:
"For in Him ALL things were created...things in heaven and on earth...all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before ALL things and in Him all things hold together." Colossians 1:16-17
Have a wonderful week and thank you for letting us share our joy!
