On his way!

So...  After continually guessing, it looks like today is the day.  Stephanie went into labor late Friday night and we are expecting Jeremiah anytime Saturday morning.   It's almost 4:00am, and I am not tired in the least.  I can't believe we are finally here.  Our God has kept us in the palm of his hand, and guided our every step.  More details and pictures to come.   Lots and lots of pictures!

God's timing

Wow, it's been a busy summer!  The "nesting" has been going on for awhile around here as we get all the baby items together for Jeremiah's arrival.  We had three beautiful showers thrown by friends and family that have helped us get all the necessary things we need for him and many other things that are just so cute!   David's family has also been showering us with gifts from around the country.  We are so blessed to have all the support that we have had.  Everything is on schedule at this point and we are eagerly awaiting the call or text that he is on his way. 
As we reflect over this process we see how strong God's presence has been along the way.  He knew this plan long before we did and it is all coming together perfectly in His timing.  We rejoiced when He brought Stephanie into our lives and began putting the pieces together to add to our family.  But now as it gets so close, we struggle with praying for our will instead of His!  But we are human and just excited. :)  So now when it really counts, we pray that we step back and "not my will, but yours be done."  God knows what He's doing and is good ... all the time. (right Stephanie) ;)  So please pray for the sweet baby that is on his way into this world and for the beautiful young woman who will give him life.  Thank you, God, for this blessing.
