The Big Day

Well, today is the big day. I can’t believe it’s already here. For the most part we are pretty calm, but I know I’m going to be doing a lot of pacing and toe tapping between now and this evening when we go to the hospital.

It’s all a bit scary, but for the most part I think we are ready to meet this little guy and begin to face the challenges ahead rather than worry and anticipate. In some ways my biggest fear right now is that when we call tonight they will tell us they don’t have a bed for us and we will have to continue to stress for a little longer. I know everything is going to turn out just the way it is supposed to though. Of that I have no doubt. Since everything that is about to come is out of my hands, I'm putting my trust in a greater power.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)

We are so thankful to all those who are praying for Jack and who fasted with us yesterday. I know that it is those prayers that are keeping us so calm and sane.

The next time we post it will hopefully be to announce Jack’s safe arrival.
