Quiet morning

It's been a peaceful and productive morning. The rain is beating down on the windows and the dishwasher is humming away as it cleans my dirty dishes. I hear little giggles of glee behind me, as my two little boys watch Sesame Street and laugh at Elmo's antics.

And here I sit, 38.5 weeks pregnant, enjoying a few quiet moments on the computer. As I type and update, I ponder and meditate. It is almost time for another big life change. A 3rd child will join our home in just a few days/weeks.

I wonder at just how the new little one will affect our family; how God's richest blessings will change and mold us; how we will adapt and adjust and bring God glory in the process. Deep thoughts for a quiet morning...

Despite a few looming anxieties (labor and delivery!!), my heart is filled with thoughts of thanksgiving and praise. What a great God we have, who knew us and loved us before we were even conceived, who knows our weaknesses and frailties, and who gives us strength when our strength is gone. Thank you, Lord, for quiet mornings, for peaceful rain, for loving husband, my dear little boys, and my 3rd child on the way.

I'm glad you are getting a few peaceful moments before the baby arrives. We can hardly wait for the phone to ring telling us he's here! We're praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby boy!
You know your twin brothers are hoping today is the day, just like it was theirs, 21 years ago!
