49. Home Stretch

Wow, it is hard to believe some mornings that I am on the home stretch of this pregnancy. But then I get on my feet and the reality of how I feel confirms it to me. Even with the uncomfortableness of these days, I feel incredibly blessed to be on this journey. Learning much from the little one who is so carefree in me and from the One who reminds me that I am to be like him. (Having the faith and simple trust of a little child.) Fear tries to come in with the “what if’s” of labor and the first weeks of nursing and little sleep, but as I spend time with the Creator and Sustainer of all, I know that He is not going to suddenly shift His character and actions towards me as soon as I am in crisis. I have tasted and seen that He is good in so many situations in my life, even difficult ones. And I am reminded of a verse that has spoke to my heart many times during the last months….“…he gently leads those that have young.” Isaiah 40:11
