Please forgive me it has been awhile. In a past post Plans, last Spring, I hinted that “his plans also seems to have one very unexpected surprise for us, one made with love. Still waiting for the lines to line up on that one.” Well the lines lined up and 2 lines equalled, positive. Yes, last Spring we found out that we were expecting our 3rd child. Completely unexpected, so unexpected we decided to not move to Louisiana until after the baby. Unfortunately, that meant being apart from my husband.
Fast forward, our 3rd little girl was born in December. She is big and beautiful. With God’s hand carrying me along the way, we made it through being apart. It was hard and I hated every minute of it but we made it through. Often my husband would be the one who had to remind me of faith and that his plans for us maybe hard now but He will continue to take care of us.
Now new plans (loose plans) following the school year the girls and I will finally make the move and our family will once again be whole. I am very excited about the move. I am excited about our family returning to “normal”. Throughout this season I would remind myself to “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on my own understanding”. I often find myself drifting to the “why” question and Proverb3:5 brings me back to reality. Little M is now 2 months old. I’ve just returned back to work and juggling kids, home, work as a single parent. Hopefully if it’s in God’s plan we will be in Louisiana in June. Once we are settled I will be working hard to get to blog more.
I would love to hear how God laughed at your plans and blessed you with something better.
