right now

Words are a snapshot of where are in time which is why I love writing and reading other's daily reflections and musings. Ashley's list yesterday made me smile and I thought it would be encouraging to do one of my own. Currently I am:

-feeling this baby move so regularly.
-taking each day as it comes.
-seeing grass poke through the snow.
-the thought that I have a summer wardrobe waiting for me that includes lots of flowing tops and not necessarily (although allowed) elastic waistbands.

Not Loving:
-waking up at all kinds of odd hours and pretty consistently from 3-5 a.m.
-not knowing how to make a decision in front of us.

-cleaning out every nook and cranny in our house, using facebook and craigslist to list items and taking the rest to goodwill.
-organizing pictures and files on my computer (nesting has taken over my life!)
-walking through some really great stuff that we learned in our discipleship class with Katie.

-to be a mom!
-to list our house for sale as we transition to Grand Rapids for Ryan to start seminary. Which creates a whole additional list of preparing.
-for our maternity pics in a few weeks with Christy by scouring our closets and the sale racks at Motherhood.
-to transition out of my role at Evergreen at the end of April.

-how I have always felt about control and planning in exchange for God's bigger plan.

-the Old Testament, slowly but surely.

That God has led our journey this far and will continue to do the same in the days to come.

  1. Aw, love your list. :) One day we will have to get these babes together - I feel like I'm going through this pregnancy with you since we are so close with our due dates! Hope you are able to get the rest you need. XOXO
