Patience

If you haven't been able to tell, I have been starting to get a little impatient waiting for the Little Monkey to arrive over the past few weeks.

The Dude has been teasing me lately, telling people that this end stage of pregnancy has been especially easy on me since I really love it when things are unplanned, unscheduled, and out of my control. He says that since I just love to fly by the seat of my pants, not having any idea what week, day, and hour the Monkey will decide to join the world has been a walk in the park for me.

{do you sense his sarcasm?}Align Left

Last night, as I was laying in bed falling asleep, the Dude went through my stack of labour scriptures and read each of them out loud to me. While he was doing so, one of the verses that I haven't focused on quite as much as some of the others really stood out to me.

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him" - Ps 37: 7b


This baby will be born soon. Perhaps not on my schedule. Perhaps not in my time. But this baby will be born soon.


God knows exactly when, how, and where this baby will enter the world.


God has had this child's name engraved in the palm of his hand since the beginning of all time.


And He has picked the perfect birthday for our Little Monkey.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the song 'While I'm Waiting' is playing on my playlist as I write this.

Love this :) Don't you wish it was easy peasy to rely on God all the time? Oh the stress that would take away! Easier said than done...

Love you!

I know it feels like eternity waiting right now, but it will come before you know, and you'll miss being pregnant. Enjoy the miracle of life inside you! I'm trying to cherish every moment this time around cause I know it will be my last. Hoping your little monkey comes soon!

I love when God does that - throws a verse, a song, a comment from your husband, or, heck, a perfect stranger, and it just resonates. It's a profound message just for you.

He's pretty good, that God of ours.

Oh, waiting is one of the hardest things to do. Good thing that God has perfect timing.

Shaina said...

I love you! Baby will come soon. And I can't wait to meet him or her! And I can't wait to meet YOU, as a mommy. Because I know you are going to be pretty damn superfantastic.

Balls sideways.

Oh good luck being patient! It is so hard but the moment you know it is happening everything will be worth it!

Aww, I'm just now getting to this. He will be here very soon, I just know it! (and this time I mean it!)

Oh, and just to clarify, when I say "soon" I mean in the next few hours or next few weeks. ;) Love you and praying for patience and peace.
