It's way past time for a new update, but I am having serious problems trying to figure out what to share. There is SO much going on in our lives, in so many different areas!
The pregnancy is still going well. This little guy is moving enough to keep me awake a lot of nights. After last night, I'm thinking he may be born hyperactive!! It literally felt like he was bouncing off the sides of his little world just for the fun of it--kinda like a kid in a bathtub, when they discover they can slide on their belly in the tub! But it's such a comfort that he is active now!! My next check-up is on Tuesday, so maybe I'll have more to share then.
In other news, we (my parents and Steven and I) finally settled on some land and the closing was last week. After months(years, really!!) of looking, the Lord has provided for our family in such an awesome way!! For Steven and I, this is the place that we're hoping will be our home for the rest of our lives and an inheritance that we can leave for our children. I'm so looking forward to being able to get my own home again, especially knowing that, the Lord willing, this will be the LAST TIME I have to move! That's a crazy thought considering we've lived seven different places in the last nine years. I know that's not a lot compared to military families, but I'm certainly tired of the whole packing/unpacking cycles when I'm pregnant and have little ones in tow!
Well, there's so much more than this going on, but I don't have time to share right now. Just keep praying for us! The Lord has many changes in store for us over the next 6-9 months and I often feel that I'm barely keeping my head above water, so to speak. I need LOTS of grace!
Until next time...
