The end of a pregnancy is such a test of trust and patience. We give up our bodies for months upon months, and then at the end we wait. We wait with eager anticipation, some excitement, and maybe (if you're like me) a little bit of fear, too. We wait for our body to say, ‘It is time. Let’s bring this baby into the world.’
As I come to the end of this 40 week journey, I'm challenging myself to rest in God's timing, and to be OK with not knowing his plan. As each day passes I'm searching for peace, and I'm trying to be comfortable with an arrival date that is out of my control. And so this weekend we are going to go with the flow; we are going to rest and wait and enjoy these unplanned days.
Wishing you a happy, peaceful weekend!
