Breathe, just breathe

Found a cool widget; baby countdown. Thought it would be sweet to post here. My heart has now stopped!

I have less than one hundred days to get ready for his arrival. Oh My. The list of goals to accomplish before going into labor is too long. The room is not finished. and I wanted to sew things for him. and I have not become the completely organized mother/wife/youth pastor's wife/Sunday school teacher/homeschool organizer/birthday card sender/housekeeper...

The woman I want to be seems so far away from who I am today! I know I am not the same as when I began. I really am looking forward to welcoming this baby and adjusting our lives. I think I may be a little more mature at 31 than I was at 21...hopefully. I feel more confident in trusting what experience has taught me and trusting that the Lord will not leave me hopeless and alone.
I know that the Bible tells us to live purposeful lives, to examine each moment and count our days...when idealistic, visionary me does that it really brings perspective.
I don't think I'll be ready. I know God knows what He is doing, though. That's enough for me.

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6
You do need to breath and relax. Know that God’s grace is sufficient and He is your strength in your weakness. No, you can’t do all of that, however God can. You need to sit down with Hubby, and prioritize what you need to be a part of and what needs to be done. Cross off what would be nice but doesn’t really matter and put it on an "extras" list. If you get to it- that is great – if not then that’s okay too. Enjoy your time pregnant and enjoy your family. Don’t forget to spend quiet moments with the Lord. You can do this only with Him. Lean into your husband too. He is your covering. Make sure he knows your heart right now so he can cover you in prayer, wisdom and protection.
Blessings to you! I am praying for you. {{{hugs}}}
