Friday, at 10:30AM, we have a C-section planned. Daddy and I will get to hear your voice, look into your eyes, and see you come into the world! Daddy and I will be right there with you through the whole process. We have looked fwd to meeting you and we are very blessed to have you in our family. You are gift from God in every way. He has spoken to my heart about you so much over these 9& 1/2 months and I am just honored to be your Mama. I already think that you are pretty amazing!! God spoke your first name to me several months ago... I think it's neat that He named you. Daddy and I are both agreed on that. On the eve of your birth, we are undecided on the middle name?!! We think we will KNOW once we “meet” you face to face! The Bible says that He has our names on the palm of his hand. He thinks about us all of the time.
Our lives have felt crazy in some ways because of jobs changing and moving and other things.... But I am continually reminded that the word the Lord gave us for you and about you is FREEDOM! And our live circumstances were already known by the Lord. You have ministered to me FREEDOM even in the womb. I am grateful for the lessons I have learned. And even in the C-section... It was not my original plan, but that's what I am learning. FREEDOM is most fully realized when I surrender all I have, all my plans, and all my ways and roll with it. FREEDOM is not just saying, God, your will be done in our lives... it's meaning that, not matter what it means changing, letting go of, or stepping out to take a risk in a new direction. FREEDOM is FREEDOM. It is not anxiety. It not fear. It is the opposite of bondage. FREEDOM is God's heart for everyone. And you, my son are not only a minister of FREEDOM, I believe that you are a warrior for FREEDOM! I pray that God will give our family His true compassion for seeing others set free. I know I will continue to learn a lot from your free spirit… and it will sharpen me… and teach me a lot as we get to know you and watch your personality unfold.
Jesus is always interceding on our behalf. He will be with us tomorrow throughout the C-Section and throughout the first few hospital days and it will be great. He will be with us in the first few days of coming home and you and your brother getting used to one another. It will be good. You boys are an unmatched gift to your Daddy and to me. Our family is very blessed.
I am finished doing the last load of laundry, the car is basically packed, your brother is set for tomorrow, and I am about to go to bed. It's amazing to think about what tomorrow will bring.... WONDERFUL YOU! So, happy early birthday my love! I can't wait to meet you and hold you in my arms. I LOVE YOU!
My life is multifaceted... I am a Christian who desires to see the Kingdom of God expanded. I am a Mommy to two BOYS and experiencing a lot of changes every month, every week, and sometimes to my daily life. I am a wife and best friend to my husband. I am a creative photographer who started my own company in March 2009. More about me - scrapbooker, musical theatre lover, I enjoy watching game shows (when ELMO needs a break), breastfeeding, getting the new Pottery Barn mag in the mail box! I started this BLOG to connect to other new moms and share our lives together. (I've also found some "old friends" thru the blog world too!) I hope to be an encouragement to you and to get feedback from you. (Hey, I need your support too!)
Please share my BLOG with other new moms, pregnant friends, or those who may need a spiritual encouragement every now and then. The Lord is GOOD!
