Where have I been?? It’s been a busy past few months and I’m sad to say I haven’t had time to keep up with the blog. I finally have a schedule where I have the time. I’ve gone through two job changes and I am very happy now. I have more time to blog and share what is going on in our life.
Now for the big news… it’s not a job change. 😉
We are expecting a baby in August!
Nathan and I couldn’t be more thrilled… and nervous of course. Nathan has been so supportive and understanding of my nerves. Pregnancy after a miscarriage brings on many fears. I’m constantly questioning anything I eat or drink, I was frightened to go to the bathroom for several weeks, not wanting to lift a thing over 10 pounds, etc.
I’ve been doing a Bible study that has given me comfort and taken away these fears. I have learned that worry and pain aren’t natural to pregnancy. Jesus wants us to enjoy pregnancy and not believe the lies from the devil.
If you have worries from pregnancy or anything else, look into God’s word and find the comfort you need. It is good to research and learn about what is going on in your body but balance those worldly words with the Word of God.
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
“I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
“The Lord is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made. The Lord is near to all who call on him. To all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:17-18
Here’s a little progress from my belly:
I love these pictures because I so wanted a little change each week but I think I’m finally seeing a little bit. =)
I’m glad I could share the news! Be on the look out for some posts in the near future! Have a wonderful week!Marylee
