Over the Hill

We've made it 1/2 way -- 20 weeks pregnant and 20 to go! It only seems like yesterday that we found out that we were going to have a baby. God has been so gracious to us over these many weeks.

The past couple of weeks brought us the sad news of two infants who both died only days before they were due to be born -- one to friends of ours and another to the son and daughter-in-law of Pastor John Piper (Please click here to read his response to this sad experience).

It is so easy for us to forget that the birth of our child is not a certain thing. Everything is in the hands of our Almighty God who sustains all life and lovingly ordains all that comes to pass. We must not forget that his mercies are new every morning and his faithfulness to all generations.

As the weeks and months fly pass we must remember to give thanks to God for that tiny little heartbeat, those ever more frequent little kicks, and God's great goodness to us.

Tuesday morning we go for our ultrasound . . .
