Have you ever been overwhelmed by God’s grace and mercies, forgiveness and love?
Has reminders of His faithfulness and provisions caused tears to flow and a smile to form at the same time?
That has definitely happened countless times throughout my life, but most recently the Lord swept me off my feet last Sunday.
Pain is real.
Suffering happens daily.
Trials unexpectedly pounce from behind bushes and come screaming down the road from miles away.
There have been certain things that I’ve endured in this life that have made me long for Jesus and His return in a extra real way. Certain experiences have given me eyes to see what my heart longs for…to be home. Truly home. The home I was created for. Some physical and emotional pains made me cry out for my Savior to come quickly. But more recently, engagement last year and pregnancy this year have been the biggest earthly echoes of my heart’s longing to be with my Father.
It has been awhile since I’ve gotten on here. It goes against what I was trying to do by writing more and being consistent with it, but sometimes life just happens. And in our case, that meant welcoming the news of having a baby in early October.
We found out we were pregnant in February. February 5th to be exact. My first doctor’s appointment was the following week and we found out we were 6 weeks pregnant at that point.
