Well, it’s here! The final trimester of my pregnancy is here and I couldn’t be happier. (Not necessarily about the third trimester part) but to think we get to meet our little one in about 10 weeks is REALLY exciting.
There’s so much anticipation in the final months of pregnancy. So many unknowns can also make for a decent amount of anxiety… about birth, about what life with a newborn will be like the second time around, how we’ll all adjust, etc. But, I’m learning to look past the unknowns so that I can fully embrace the excitement of this season.
We move in 3 weeks into our first home! For five years, my husband and I rented basement suites. The last 10 months we’ve been renting a home. And on Friday we get possession of the first home we have ever owned. To say we are excited is an understatement. We have two weeks to do some work on the place. We’ve chosen new flooring and carpeting and are still deliberating on paint colours for all the rooms. I’ve been pinteresting it up for paint colour ideas…. SO many opinions! But I think we’ve narrowed it down and we’re waiting to get into the place until we make our final decisions.
There is still lots to do here… organize, pitch, donate, clean, pack… But I know that by God’s grace it will all get done. I get tired quicker during this last stretch of pregnancy and I really need to pace myself…especially with a 20 month old running around. And he’s a busy one. 🙂
Here’s to finding rest in the crazy, letting go of the fear of the unknown, and walking into a beautiful new season, recognizing God’s provision and clear hand in it all.
