One September Day

When time stands still

Time is standing still...
  I am knowing this baby girl will arrive soon... my body is telling me that... every night.
The pain keeps me up for hours, and she is restless.
I am trying to be still.
Peace... He has given me peace.

While time stands still.. or so, it seems...
I have been capturing moments that I may have missed before...

-My daughter playing new songs on her guitar..

-My toddler snuggled in bed with me in the middle of the night with a cough.. rubbing my face and whispering to me.. "Mommy..."

-Warm, soapy dishwater on my girls hands as they take care of kitchen work

-My 6 year old son laying his head on my baby belly,, wrapping his arms around my widening waist , and asking me to rub his back

-God's amazing works in the book of Acts, and the wide-open acceptance of many at Paul's preaching

-Snow melting and the green grass poking through the patch that receives the little sunlight in our dense wooded land

-Memorizing Colossians, and understanding this Book even more

-Watching the last days of this baby girls movements in my stomach

-Seeing my Oldest son grow into decisions and amazing opportunities

-Knowing that my life has been blessed beyond what any list could encompass...
Just knowing this..
Is like time Standing Still.

Grateful for this time of waiting... it has been hard..
But it has been rewarding.

    Don't we all need to just be still.... Thanks for that reminder tonight as I prepare to sit down with a good Book. :-)

    Looking forward to "meeting" your baby girl!

    Love you,
    Angela

    Continuing to hold you dearly in my prayers, September. You're a remarkable woman, full of God's spirit. You're not only beautiful outwardly, but deep within. May God's blessings pour over your head and throughout your body, mind, and soul. I count the hours now until I read the splendid news of your little girl's long, awaited journey to your arms is fullfilled.

    God bless!

    you are SUCH an incredible inspiration to me, September. I will be in prayer for you and your sweet baby. May God bathe you in his peace, equip you with his strength, and cover you with his healing.

    My husband I are dreaming about our future children and stories like your, families like yours, inspire me and give me an even deeper desire for that gift.
