Six Times The Blessings

We are so in control of the direction and events of our lives, so we think.

Just when we had settled into a family vehicle that holds 7, cleaned out our storage containers of all maternity and infant clothing, and made plans to get away next summer for our 15th wedding anniversary, God has seen fit to bless us with a new little addition...

I had no idea what was in store when Troy and I were planning for our back-to-school parent training talks, and spent much time thinking on Charles Spurgeon's insightful encouragement:

"God's callings are his enablings."

Boy, do I need to speak that to myself now, more than ever! My fears and insecurities about embarking on journey Number 6 is being enveloped by a desire to know dependence on Christ more fully. I have no doubt this will be a sanctifying season, and an opportunity to see God's greatness unfold.

More of Him, and less of me! May it be so in this pregnancy-- unplanned in my own limitations, CREATED with blessing in His infinite wisdom!

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps." -Proverbs 16:9

(and here's a little video of when the boys found out about Number 6...)
