Yes, the joy of our little girl is such a blessing. She is loved so much already. I love this saying which I saw in a store .."the first blessing of parenthood is loving so deeply someone you've never met". It is so true of my feelings for her and Benjamin. And once you get to lay eyes on them that love is so overwhelming!! A love I truly have never felt before. It is just amazing. At times with Benjamin I didn't even see the life supporting machines. I only saw our little boy and was stricken by him! Now as we go through this again with the anticipation of our precious little girl, we can only imagine that day of love. Being able to hold our girl I know will be one of the most amazing days of our life. Something that is so often taken for granted will be so much more for us. I am praying for that day. I know as before this is all in God’s hands. I am trying so hard to not worry or allow that anxiety to enter my soul. I think I have done well with that so far but as we approach 21 weeks tomorrow I have allowed some of that worry to enter. With Benjamin all looked perfect. His detailed ultrasound was at 19 weeks, hers at 20, and both with no signs of a problem. The world around us came crashing down at 28 weeks. The next 7 weeks my worry is a bit more. I can only trust and know it is in our God’s hands.
Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:9 continues to say: “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
Please pray for me that I can remember this and put into practice what I already know. God is all powerful and in control. May he give me peace in knowing that.
We Love an miss you so much!!
