gratitude

When I drove back to work from my doctor appointment on Thursday, I was overwhelmed with gratitude for this baby who's coming to join our family. I've mentioned that I enjoy going to my doctor appointments because I get to hear the race-horse-like heart beat of the lil' one {still going strong at 154}. There is still a little bit of fear each time I drive to the doctor - fear that I might not hear the heart beat. And each time so far, it's such a relief and joy to hear that this little poppy seed has/is developing into a little human.

I'm grateful that for whatever reason, the Lord has given us this gift. It is nothing that we worked for nor earned. It is nothing that we deserve.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
