If somehow you happen to be the only person that is not my mom reading this blog, and you haven't heard the news, I have an announcement:


It says “Easy Bake” on the front..

Can you connect the dots?
Yep. After a lot of waiting and praying and learning about Him, we have been overwhelmed by His undeserved blessing.
And now, being only 7 weeks away from my due date, I can sit back and see how perfect His timing is.
So often, while I was waiting I was reminded of this:
“Child of weakness watch and pray, find in Me thine all in all.”
I feel that the Lord was so tender with me through it all, not dealing with me harshly in my discontent, but gently. Reminding me time and again how blessed I already was, how blessed I was with a wonderful husband, family, friends, and all the comforts life can offer, how could I think I needed more?
And now, I am so thankful for that waiting period, for the tears, because I feel that I caught a closer glimpse of who the Lord is and His deep love for me, for Eric and I.
This all can sound very trite as I think of so many friends and loved ones who still are waiting, but either way, I am reminded that the Lord is good, and sometimes we can only fully understand that in hard times.
“It would have been enough, but You blessed us more.”
