…Then Comes the Baby in a Baby Carriage, Part 2

Tea ~ White Silk Earl Grey

I didn’t intend for there to be a part 2 to this story. At least not yet. If you remember reading our infertility story back in April, my prayer was for my body to be healed and functioning properly. Thank you for your prayers and support! We were so overwhelmingly encouraged after hesitantly revealing our struggles, but the response was a blessing in and of itself. God sure has a sense of humor and blesses us in ways that sometimes go beyond our prayers! It is clear that I was supposed to share our story with the world because we got pregnant the day I published it. And it is with great joy that we share this news with you! Baby Amidon is due January 5th, 2014!

May God be glorified through us and our story and offer hope to those struggling with infertility stories of their own. He does have a plan for you, and a specific one. It may not be in the timing we want or the way that we want, but you can trust that you are loved by our Great God! But first, and always, we must delight in the Lord regardless of our circumstances and be content in our current season. We won’t be happy or content if we have “just this one thing.” That’s a roller coaster ride that will keep going and lead to disappointment.

Instead:

“Delight yourself in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.” Psalm 37:4-5

Be encouraged!
