We live in this world that is spinning so fast that sometimes it is hard enough just to catch our breath, let alone stop and breathe in God's magnificence. But His blessings are all around us and often come in very unexpected ways. I love that when I am feeling lost and alone, God seeks me and comforts me right where I am in some sort of divine way. Whether it be encouraging words from a friend or a sweet moment with one of my children, I know He is in it all.
I have been praying a lot lately as to whether or not I am a good mom, for wisdom and strength to be a better mama to my boys, and for God's guidance for the direction of our family. I was feeling confused and like I was failing and took that as a sign that maybe God was saying "no" to something I was praying a lot about. Not that getting a "no" is a bad thing, but it definitely is hard to hear when you want so badly the answer to be "yes". Little did I know something BIG was in the works.
When it came to whether or not we would have another baby, to tell you the truth my husband and I were completely 50/50 on the fence. There are so many pros and cons either way (for us). However, I had come to this point where I was completely content with our little family. I LOVE my two boys and God somehow had given me peace in the fact that maybe that was the conclusion to our family. And then in His grace and hilarious sense of humor God pushed us off the fence!! That's right, baby no. 3 is officially coming this December and we could not be more thrilled. It definitely came as a bit of a surprise, because we were not planning this pregnancy, but it's been the best surprise and the most unexpected blessing I could have ever imagined.
I cannot wait to meet this new little nugget and welcome him or her to our family!!
