Less than 20 days to go now!
With the obsterician appt yesterday indicating that I may be in pre-labour, I'm making the most of enjoying these days that are here right now!
When Elijah was born, we had a little present at the hospital for Stassi to play with as a gift from us. It was a way that we could say, 'hey you are still so special to us too!' especially as people brought so many gifts to the hospital for the new bubba. We continued this when Ethan was born and both Liji and Stassi received a small gift from us. The other beautiful thing about this little tradition is that the gift is something practical that they can play with in the hospital room when they visit, when people are fussing over the bubba. So last night I bought the 3 kids their little gifts which are some activity packs with crayons, little colouring books and stickers. $3.50 well spent!
Today I will be resting as much as I can and when I have some little bursts of energy I will be doing small jobs, reading the Word of God and enjoying being with the kids.
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
We just cannot wait to meet our little bubba!
Love and God's blessings to you,
