In the family way

Remember when they used to call it that? Yeah, me neither. That's what our pastor calls it though when a woman is expecting a baby. And that's what I'm doing!

We found out this morning. I didn't expect to be pregnant at all, but since I have a dentist appt. tomorrow and I KNOW they'll want to take x-rays, I decided to just rule out pregnancy b/c I knew they'd ask. I was shocked- still am! Very thankful, very excited. I guess the baby fever I had was for a reason :) The Lord is good!

Having had a miscarriage before, I am well aware that it's a possibility for it to happen with this child. We do have 2 live, healthy children for which I'm SO THANKFUL FOR. I don't want to live in fear, but just enjoy every single day the Lord gives us with each life he blesses us with. That's all I want. My aim is that all I do to be to the glory of God. He gives life. I'm thankful for this life He has begun.

Psalms 127:3-5 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
