the gift of time...







our little man still hasn't arrived yet. apparently he has decided to fall right into line with a serious family history of late babies. we are embracing the 'waiting period'. there are few times in your life when you have your schedule completely cleared and can wake up each morning simply awaiting what the day holds. this is our world right now and it is truly a gift. it has been a sweet time of reconnection for me and joey and a priceless opportunity to savor every moment with lucy (who seems to grow up minute by minute). our days have been filled with family meals together (breakfast, lunch, and dinner!), impromptu trips to the playground, visits with family and friends who we normally don't see enough of...and bedtime routine is now a family affair (with all three of us squeezed on lucy's little twin bed for stories and prayers). tonight lucy (in her halloween costume/clemson game day attire) took full advantage of some last minute undivided attention from her uncle robert and the rest of our family...

so...yes - God, i do eagerly await the arrival of our tiny boy and pray that you would deliver him to us safely. but also i thank you for knowing what we need and when we need it. we have truly been blessed in the waiting...

PSALM 27: 14 ~ Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
