41 weeks and the Lord is in control!

I'm just amazed at how the Lord works and keeps us leaning on Him every step of the way. I have really been struggling with not having this baby yet and really thought today was the day! I have been having some serious contractions all day and they just kept getting stronger. So I called my midwife and guess what~ She is at another birth right now helping a first time mom with twins! This mom is also over 40 weeks (did I mention she's having twins?). Obviously my midwife can't be in two places at once so the Lord just stoppped my contractions. It truly is in His hands and I have total peace about it. What an awesome God we serve! So Lord willing, the next post should have a picture of our new blessing!~ God bless you all!

39 weeks & 3 days!

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted anything! I will try to do better. Don't hold me to it right away but I will be trying to post at least once a month. I have so much I could say but so little time to type it. Plus I have not enjoyed sitting in this uncomfortable chair for the last few months.
So baby update~ Due in a few days but will probably make me suffer for a little while after that! My babies like to do that to me! There was a great time of testing my faith during these past few months. Baby has been in the wrong position for the majority of the time. I really let that control my mood for awhile. When baby was head down I was happy but when baby was head up I was frustrated and so easily irritated. It was not good. I would give it to the Lord and then take the worry right back. Finally, I was able to truly give it to Him and He gave me peace back. It was and is so nice to rest in Him and not worry. I can say that I think I am learning a little faster but right away would have been ideal! Baby remained in a breech position for several weeks but now is head down and has been for almost a whole week! Yeah!!! Now I am just waiting for His timing so I can have this baby. This is a hard one too because I think I know the perfect time, it was a couple weeks ago.:0) But I guess the Lord has a different birth date in mind!
I hope everyone is doing good! Questions for the month are~ How is your quiet time? Are you communing with God and feeling satisfied with your relationship? How much of the Bible do you read each day?
My quiet time is sporadic right now. I am communing with God, He keeps me depending on Him and I love that. I read at least one chapter usually more and usually everyday. The children and I read the proverbs that goes with the day, March 7th read the 7th chapter. Then we have a Bible time and memorizing with our schooling. I have to be careful not to count these times as my Bible time because I am not alone with the Lord during these times. They are great but do not make up for a true quiet time with the Lord where I talk to Him and He talks to me through His word.
I just encourage everyone to read and really seek the Lord with all your heart.
Oh, vehicle update~ The Lord gave us a couple of cars and that was a blessing. Now we also have a van that seats 8 with room to grow to 12! It is a very nice van and we are loving going places as a family again!
I hope everyone has a blessed Lord's day!
