Thinking back to this time last year, I was joyfully expecting (waiting!) for our dear son to continue growing and stretching and moving in my belly. Oh how we waited for him! Our firstborn was already eight years old, and we just weren't sure that this new baby, this blessing, would ever BE.
Gut-wrenching, piercing, horrendous pain is what I think of when I hear the word waiting.....for it took us 6 years for our first child, and 8 years for our second. I was indeed waiting for my houseful of children when I was first married..... But my body knows that I don't have time to wait for another 8 years.... so my prayer has again become, "Please God, help me to bear this waiting with patience. My heart cannot hold it all. I need your peace. Your guidance. Your strength." Will we be blessed with another little one?! We'll have to "wait in joyful hope" for it........
Whew. O.K. So that was fun, and I am so very glad that I found this link. Please feel free to comment and let me know that you stopped by... (This is only my second post, so I know it's rather bare!)
