home stretch

I'm on the home stretch! Today was my last day working at the Children's Ministry Center at First Baptist Church in Covington (wow that's a long name!) Baby Boy isn't due for another week but I wanted to have a little time to myself next Tuesday and Thursday while Micah is there to rest and think...unless of course he decides to come early.

I really enjoyed my year in the preschool. It was definitely a challenge at first!!! Six one year old boys demand a little different side of you than a classroom full of 2nd graders. I grew to love them all though and will miss the extra love from them as well! I also met some great new people who I hope to keep in touch with and not just through blogs and facebook :)

On the home front, the room is organized, the bags are packed, arrangements have been made for Micah and we are waiting patiently, or atleast trying to. The only thing we haven't done is settle on a name, but hopefully we will soon. This week has been a whirlwind of emotion. While we are excitedly awaiting the birth of our 2nd son and anxious about meeting him a dear friend's daughter lost her first child, a boy, during childbirth. My heart absolutely broke when I heard the news. I can't imagine how that feels, it's horrible enough being on the outside looking in, but to be living it...unimaginable, unbelievable, just...I don't even know. I've been praying for this family constantly all the while feeling a fear creep up inside of me about the safety of my own sweet boy. The only thing we all can cling to is the fact that God is Sovereign and will take care of me, him, them no matter what.


  1. I'm so glad you finally updated your blog. It seems like it has been forever since you last updated it! What... maybe 3 or 4 days. We are so thankful you took the job at the CMC this year b/c I know two little boys who adored you. We are going to miss you, but hopefully we can keep in touch. Good luck with baby boy #2. You are in our prayers!

  2. I'm so excited that the baby is almost here! I will be praying for you and for peace for you and Zach. Love you!
