This past week has been an emotional roller coaster for me as we are just 8 weeks away from meeting our little prince or princess. It’s becoming more & more difficult to rest at night due to the tossing & turning, having to empty my bladder every 3 hours or the most annoying non-stop itching on my arms & legs – which I find to be the worst of them all.

Or will he feel less important?” – I know those are silly questions to even ask but this is what occurs when I begin to overanalyze & worry so much about the what if’s.

Sometimes His answer is, “Yes”, “No” or “Not Yet” but regardless of what His answer is, we must always ask for His will to be done, not ours. As I commented, I was listening to My Testimony by Marvin Sapp on Pandora & I was encouraged to share one of mine.
