Most of the time...

Most of the time we are keeping this waiting period busy with church, basketball games, family and friends.
Most of the time I am able to appreciate this time Brian and I have together. The last few months that we will be a married couple without kids.
Most of the time it feels like time is flying by. Wasn't Christmas just yesterday?
Most of the time, I try to not plan the nursery too much or look at baby clothes. It seems to make things a little harder.
Some of the time I can't stop thinking and planning.
Some of the time I have a weekend where I do the very things I said I wouldn't. Buy a crib, dresser, and nursery bedding! (My mom and I got a little carried away!)
Some of the time I get down about the lack of referrals lately. (Where are they BTW!)
Some of the time we have an evening, like last night. There is no laundry to fold, no cleaning to do, no activities to go to and it is quiet. The kind of quiet that only a child, OUR son, could fill.
But ALL of the time I know that God is in control. He has our child picked out for out family and he will be here at the right time, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years! (but definitely praying for closer to the 6 months!!!!)
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."- Jeremiah 29:11
And thanks to everyone for all the support through our t-shirts! We will be placing the order the end of this week!:)

Thanks for saying what I've been feeling! I hope things pick up soon- and don't forget that each day that passes brings you one day closer to your son!

Shannon, that was an amazing post. You gave me chills and tears in my eyes. Your faith is so strong. I am blessed to have you in my life.

I know I feel the same way...trying to enjoy the last days of just the two of us..yet wishing the time would pass so quickly. Yeah on getting baby stuff how fun!!

Great perspective, friend. There's still the longing, but asking God to fill it in the meantime is the best thing you could do - and that will mature you beyond measure before your sweet one comes.
