My husband and I had a fun surprise for our boys this week, and we want to share it with you too! It will make you laugh out loud! Watch this:
When I started my blog, I had just given birth to my third son and I was certain that God knew that my husband and I felt pretty “done” with having babies. That said, we are always open to having more children, if that was what God had in mind for us. We know that “family-planning” is a man-made idea. God determines all of our lives-even before the foundation of the world.
Even though I would have enjoyed having another baby, I felt so certain that Oakley, who is now 2 and a half, was our last baby that I gave away all my maternity clothes, baby gear, and clothes. So you can imagine what a shock it was to find out that our quiver is expanding!
It's a clean slate-we are starting all over! And we couldn't be happier about it! The boys are over the moon excited, and wouldn't you know it, all of them are hoping for a girl, though they say they will be excited over another brother too! :)
I have already learned some amazing truths from the Lord through this new pregnancy and I'm looking forward to talking a little more about what God is teaching me in future posts!
UPDATE!!!: We are having TWINS!!!
YOUR TURN! Will you share in our joy with us over this new baby, and will you pray for me and the baby too? Thank you!! Any moms out there who have 4 or more? I'm going to need your best words of wisdom!
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:13-16
UPDATE #2: The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord-our twins are now home safe in the arms of Jesus. You can read about this sad news and God's goodness to us here.
