We always knew when we wanted to start trying for the next baby. We wanted Little Peanut and the next baby 15-18 months apart (that gave us three months to try, right?) With Little peanut we were pregnant on the second try. No here, nope. We have been trying for six month now and sadly we are still not pregnant. It is so easy to get upset with God and say "why me" "why can't you just give us a baby?" "what did I do to deserve this?" When it isn't about my deserving it at all...in fact...I deserve death in hell for eternity. God wants me to remember that He is all I need and I must find my comfort and Joy in Him! Phillipians 4 is a good reminder of contentment...(hmmm...where have I heard that before) God has placed Jeremiah 29:11 on my heart tonight about my future and trusting His plans over my own. "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" It hurts not having a baby growing inside of me that SuperDaddy and I have dreamt of having for half a year now. But we must be patient...let go of the hope of having a baby 18 months younger than little peanut and await for God's timing. God is perfect and his plans are perfect!!!
Little Peanut is almost one year old now. We will be having a little party for her as our little princess!! She is a precious gem to us and we thank God for her daily! We also pray that she would come to know Him at the earliest possible age! Here is a picture of her...she is growing fast...
And one last thing...SuperDaddy has agreed to let me paint the trim and cupboards in our kitchen. They were re-done before we bought the house with cheap ugly laminate cupboards. Some may think I'm crazy to paint them. But I want them to match my style not theirs or yours. :)
Thanks for reading and hopefully I will actually get to painting them and posting again real soon. I still want to show you the before and after shots of our playroom that has
Have a great night!!!
