Ramblings of a Pregnant Woman

Well first I just want to THANK each of you for your lovely, sweet and supportive comments!!!  Your support, encouraging words and offers of help, despite distances is amazing.  We feel extremely blessed and I am happy and so thankful to share this adventure with all of you!  I can't believe it's less then two weeks now and we'll be country living!

PINCH ME!

I know it's going to take some time for the truth of it to settle in once we get there!  No more looking out our windows, directly into our (be it very nice and lovely) neighbour's house.  No more sitting on the front step people watching and chatting with passer-bys.  No more late evening runs to the store to pick up ice cream!  But what there will be, will be fields of grass, tress and a beautiful valley to enjoy.  We will be able to sit out and cow watch.  And well, we will just have to keep our freezer ever stocked!

So, right now, I'm taking a break from all the packing.  The boxes are quickly piling up and I am thanking the Lord for all the work He has done in our lives to get us to purge and live with less.  I'm sure those helping us move will thank Him too! ;)

My hubby is out at his by-weekly men's meeting, so I'm spending this down time with blogging and internet shopping.  I mean, a gal needs to find a few new pieces for her new home, right?!?! ;)  A favourite shopping ground of mine is at Christianbook.com.  Ever been?  If not...I caution you - it's amazing - a wonderful source for all kinds of Christian material, from books, cds, movies, home decor, gifts, etc.  My caution then?  Well once you check it out, you'll be hooked and soon you'll have to have your husband monitor your time spent on it.  *sigh* It's funny because it's true - it's even worse now since they accept PayPal - even from us Canadians!

So, like I was saying, the boxes are piling up but I find that being in my last month of pregnancy it's harder then I thought to get all this packing done.  I'm usually fairly strong, capable and efficient - but I need to remind myself that my body isn't my own right now and need to take breaks...often! I'm not letting the pregnancy be an excuse to be useless but just keeping cautious with how hard I push myself.  I can pack and carry the boxes around the house but for this move, I think I'll leave the furniture to the men!

My pregnancy is coming close to an end.  It's been an amazing blessing and God has carried me through it with such grace and caring - even with the hardships and emotional highs and lows. With finding out we are having our first son on the same day as discovering my dad had suffered a massive stroke in Mexico, the Lord has been my rock and I have never understood that like I do now.  This pregnancy has really been measured by some surreal events! (there's that word again!)

So as I near the beautiful conclusion of my pregnancy I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little man as well as growing ever more uncomfortable!  But it's all worth it, even if sitting, walking, standing or laying down are all accompanied by grunts, groaning and twinges of pain. ;)  I am still leaning on the Lord to guide me through the delivery of our baby boy, still waiting on and trusting in Him.  Though with all this packing and the busyness of the coming weeks that time will be here before I know it!

Well, that's all I have for now...a little er...longish post of a tired, rambling pregnant woman.  It's a little peek at the going ons and I just really wanted to thank you for your comments from my last post.

I will try to keep you all informed on what lies a head but I am sure you will forgive me if some time passes between posts. ;)  Just know I appreciated your prayers and I am thankful for them!  God has been more then gracious and kind to us and I hope to keep my focus on Him - even through the busyness and chaos of the weeks ahead - He carried me through the storm and has delivered me, so I lay my trust and hope in Him.





Okay, well I better be off to pack some more!
