It's the end of the world as we know it

In an instant life has changed for Michael and I. One week ago we were planning what we would do this summer, the trips we would take, the festivals we would attend, now talk is about changing my eating habits, not taking hot baths and what machine I can still use at the gym. It's so different but so wonderful at the same time as we anticipate something so much bigger than ourselves.

Today we attended church and we were singing "Great is Thy Faithfulness", it again was resounding in my mind about how God is faithful to us. Even when we are not faithful to him. I have spent a life full of being weak and caving to my own sin and desires, and yet God continues to bless me immensely with everything I need. Morning by morning new mercies I see...

These are the crazy times...

So the strangest, greatest, coolest, craziest, scariest, most fabulous and beautiful thing happened two days ago...I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!! Way crazy cool for us! How is a person so happy and so scared all at one time? Suddenly there is something else to think about other than, "What are we doing this weekend?" or "Can you get home to take out the dog?" Madness I tell you! But, we can't wait as we anticipate what he/she will look like, act like, feel like, on and on and on. We have so many hopes and dreams for our child and it's amazing to think they have a whole wide open future ahead of them. Our greatest prayer is that she/he will grow to be a Godly person, will follow Jesus all the days of her life and be a man/woman after God's own heart. Oh, that it would be that way!

This moment has been one of the best moments of our lives. In another 5 weeks we will hear the heartbeat and that will really bring it home for us. Good times!
