Here we are at the end on February and still no baby. I’m doing OK though, I feel sad and a little disappointed. However I trust that God knows the perfect timing for our family and his plan is more perfect than our plan could ever be.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. -Jeremiah 29:11
While we wait we are getting so much around the house done. While Husband is slaving away on the new fence I have been keeping myself busy. doing the odd jobs around the house. I have trimmed trees, replenished the granite in the driveway, drug the yard, cleaned up the cactus garden, planted the spring garden, and about 100 other odd jobs. I am enjoying the time God has given us to get things done. I am a natural born pepper so it all feels like getting ready. This time is a blessing, if I was pregnant right now I might not be able to get all this done.
Though each month brings a small pang of sadness and disappointment I know that there is a season for everything. God reassures me with his word and gives me ears to listen to his plan and his timing.
A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill, And a time to heal;
A time to break down, And a time to build up;
A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain, And a time to lose;
A time to keep, And a time to throw away;
A time to tear, And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;
A time to love, And a time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace.-Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
