*sigh* Where do I start?
I've been so overwhelmed with "life" lately that I've let the whirlwind distract me from the weekly practice of deliberate thankfulness. But, that doesn't mean I haven't been aware of all God's wondrous provision and intervention all around me.
Mostly, I need to say...thank you Lord for my amazing life. And, for the incomprehensible quantity of simple pleasures that have been all around me the last 2 weeks. Family. Beautiful weather. My home. DaHubby. The Vikings. Church family. Friends. Health. Strength of body. Sleep (when I stop long enough to engage in some. LOL).
However, my previous whirlwind was brought to a sudden and complete halt Tuesday. And, a new one has begun:
For those of you unfamiliar with my history, this is really a miracle at God's hands. I spent many years fighting infertility. Flicka's conception occurred on the 25th cycle of attempts. The number 5 (a Biblical symbol for grace) and its multiples have been a reoccurring theme in DaHubby's and my marriage.
Pojke was another complete and utter shock. We found out about that pregnancy on our anniversary: 5-5-05. History of infertility, nursing Flicka still, and POOF! God worked a wonder. I was pregnant.
And, now, using the same methods as always during that same time of month to avoid getting pregnant...and POOF!
This little bean (I'm considering the bloggy pseudonym "Böna" - Swedish for bean) is again another example of God's wonderful, amazing, and abundant grace.
Your prayers are appreciated. It is still very early in this pregnancy and I DID turn FORTY this year, ya know! *wink*
God's will be done...
Stop by Pam's place and Iris's Sting My Heart from more deliberate thankfulness.
