The countdown begins tomorrow: ten days left in my 40 days of prayer! Actually I think I miscounted on my original 40 days… because technically, after today, I have 11 days to May 20th. But you get the idea. Whatever happens, we’re getting close, and through this process I have been much encouraged. That is such a gift.
My bags are getting packed, gifts wrapped, the baby carrier is clean and ready to go, my paper chain is getting shorter, I am getting larger, and my discomfort is increasing in a measurable way — which is exciting, however uncomfortable. We’re just… waiting!
My new favorite verse right now:
“[She] will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of [her] birth…” Luke 1:14 NIV
Lord, thank you for your favor on me, and the support for me you have provided. I ask for definitive labor as soon as is healthy and safe.
