Here or There

Here I am large and in charge at 31 weeks
(this was taken yesterday)

Last time I talked to Seth's dad he made a comment about not seeing the belly for awhile so, Philip this is for you. Since you don't get to come visit with Dallise this weekend and since I don't think I'll be seeing you till after this little one comes. I'm sure it will get much bigger in the next 9 weeks so I'll try to keep you updated.

I was going to write some thoughts about this baby that's on it's way but honestly I'm not sure what I'm thinking. I'm excited to meet her but right now there are so many other things happening in our life that I don't know where this baby comes in. I hasn't hit me yet. I haven't done a thing to prepare for this baby. We don't need since we are having another girl. It's just a matter of getting things out and getting them set up and getting clothes washed and in drawers. The problem is I don't know if we will be in our house or in an apartment. We are hoping to have our house sold and be settled into an apartment before this baby comes. But that's what we want, who knows what God has planned.

I'm the type of person that needs lots of preparation for things. I'm not as good at going with the flow. I want to know where we are going and what we are doing. I tend to think of any and every situation that I could be put in so that I'm prepared for anything. So, being in the situation that I'm in right now you would think that I would be freaking out but surprisingly I'm not.

I know it is only by the grace of God that I have such a peace about things. My mind hasn't been wondering. I've been focused on what I need to do here and now. When I do start to worry I've been able to give it to God and leave it with him, in return there is a peace that passes all understanding. I know that this baby will come. I know that there will be a place to bring her home to. Either here or there it will be home because it will be where Seth, Jericho and I are. Right now that's all that matters to me.

OMG! Without the advantage of seeing the continual, daily growth of your pregnancy, one tends to forget just how quickly the "belly" grows. I was surprised to see you looking so far along, but it is certain evidence that another wonderful and healthy little girl will soon arrive. I can hardly wait to see her.
