Today I will be linking up with my friend, Laura from, Along for the Ride. She has started a new series on Tuesdays called Finding God.
Lately I have been finding God in the Little things:
like two little pink lines:
Yep, that's correct, Aaron and I are expecting our first child. We are ten weeks along right now. We will be due in mid-late January.
That following Saturday we went yard-saling, our friend James was in town and helped us to find a terrific crib, mattress, bedding set, and additional nursery items for $170. That's a fantastic deal friends. Do I think this was God's providence? Absolutely!!! Neither of us have jobs right now (although I am still paid through August, praise God), so we can't really afford a lot of things for baby. Our friend James helped us buy our crib set. We are so thankful that he was here, that day, when we found that remarkable deal. We also found some other great deals too! God is in the little things, like having friends visit at the exact right time.
We came home from the yard sale to find this lovely package for me.
My awesome friend, Laura, sent me these earrings as an anniversary gift. I absolutely love them. You should totally visit her shop. She has soooooo many wonderful things for sale.
I wear these earrings all the time. I especially love the mum earrings in Green Tea. I unfortunately have been terrible about taking pictures in them though. :/
So what Laura didn't know is she sent me a Happy Anniversary, Happy Pregnancy gift. A small little blessing from God? Absolutely!!!
Lately, I have been hit by morning sickness, oh wait, no not morning, all day sickness. I don't vomit too often, but I'm nauseous almost all day, everyday. Hopefully this will clear up in the next few weeks, but even still, I praise God for this sickness, because He is allowing us to bring a little child into this world that we love very much already. Not every woman will be blessed to go through morning sickness, because not every woman can have children. So I keep reminding myself to be thankful even for this time.
I praise God that telling our families went better than we had expected. We knew Aaron's family would be excited. And they were, his mom jumped up and down and was super cute :).
My family is full of worriers, so we were a bit nervous about telling them. While my family is nervous, they did also seem happy for us and for that I'm so thankful. I found God in my dad's smile when we told him he was going to be "pap" again. This will be number 4. My younger sister is really hoping for a niece this time. We'll find out in January.
So that's how I've been finding God in the little things lately. How about you?
