Yesterday was incredible. For a lot of reasons.
This post, however, will not be. It will be random & strung together as I type in excitement.
For that, I apologize.
Caroline woke up from her nap today and immediately confessed that she was hiding a present for me in the closet. Her Mothers’ Day Out program had showered me with a year’s worth of Caroline’s beautiful artwork, other gifts, and the sweetest photo of my precious girl. It was truly THE BEST present I could’ve gotten. I love being the mom of a talking, walking, gift-giving baby who understands what a mother is on mother’s day!! This will be such a sweet year. Now if I can only get my NEXT sweet baby home…
Then last night, Brad & I went to church for a special celebration for the year-end of our small groups. We worshiped and heard testimony after testimony about God’s power, healing, and love through the venue of Christian community. I cried, sang, and worshiped a God who moves mountains. (“and if our God is for us, then who can stand against us, and if our God is with us, then what could stand against…” – love this song!) I sat with the interns I posted about recently who will be working as missionaries to the inner city of our area, and it felt great to worship with such special students. They would probably think I was weird if they knew how special it was to have them sitting next to me!
On the way home, Brad gave me a Shane & Shane cd. Brad & I have quite a “Shane & Shane history.” We heard them three times: 1) the day we met. 2) the day we got married 3) the day we found out we were pregnant with Caroline. We joke that if we ever see them in concert again, we’ll wonder what huge event is about to take place in our lives. Brad informed me that they are giving a concert in town in a couple of weeks… I kid you not that it makes me wonder whether we’re ABOUT TO GET OUR REFERRAL!!!! I think that for the next two weeks, I will be driving to work with that CD cranked, screaming out their lyrics, and praying that news of our baby is coming!!!
And, as strangely as the random post began, it ends. Thanks for bearing with me. 😉
