On Saturday, it was the anniversary of my Grandfather’s death. It’s been 4 years already. I can’t believe it. There hasn’t honestly been a week that I don’t think of him. He was an amazing man. I miss him dearly but I know that he is in Heaven looking down on us, his place is MUCH better than ours. AND…he is WITHOUT pain. Praise God!
My grandmother is a very strong woman and a phenomenal example of what a Godly woman, mother, Grandmother all should be. Since Grandpa’s passing, she did good for a while, but has gone downhill a little bit. It’s so sad to watch people go downhill, but it is a part of life I suppose. I am blessed with an amazing family.
When I was chatting with my Grandma on the phone on Saturday, she didn’t really mention anything about him. She told me she was reading some scripture in the bible at the current moment, as well as her Guideposts. She just loves her Guideposts! 🙂
The scripture she was reading was for HER, but I don’t think she realized how applicable it was to ME right now as well. It’s Philippians 4:6, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” (NKJV)
As I sit here and type this, I continue to have contractions. They are definitely getting stronger. When I was trying to get to sleep last night, I started getting VERY anxious about what’s “to come” over the next week here. Labor…Delivery…Newborn…Recovery…Home Life…and on. This scripture puts things into great perspective for me. I just have to remember, it isn’t just me. Of course I can’t do it alone. I can do it with and through my God! He is my everything and he will hold my hand through labor and delivery and recovery and everything else. Oh I can’t imagine living life without HIM!
I’ll admit it, me and my flesh is scared. I hear how 3 kids is SO MUCH more than 2…and I can’t help but think about how I will be able to do it. But I have an amazing family, and more importantly and AMAZING HUSBAND who will help me with more than I can ever imagine. Plus, I have a God that can do ANYthing! He will get me through this, I know he will!
Stay tuned…but for now…. #still pregnant 🙂
