Hope: (verb) to expect with confidence
New: (adjective) recently born, built, or created
I didn’t purposefully skip the last two nights (especially two nights ago). But I do think that’s tonight’s title would have been a little….. Odd…. Had I actually posted two nights ago.
I’ll let you figure that one out.
Now for the real matter at hand….
I might be stretching it tonight with my title and definitions (but not as much as I’ll be stretching my next one) but I don’t care.
Before Jackson was born, we spent three years trying and praying. We were getting to the point where we were close to losing hope. We were beginning to suspect that maybe children were not in God’s plan for us. At least, not our own. Then, Jackson came along.
Now. We have a New Hope. A hope that God will bless us with more children. And we can truly expect that with confidence because…… Amanda is pregnant!
Yep, baby number two is on the way. The official due date is August 20th, but the doctor says they will schedule the c-section around 38 weeks (since she had one last time, the doctor doesn’t want her going into labor and putting stress on the scar). So that will place us sometime in early August.
The feeling this time is much different. Last time it was blind excitement. This time I am very excited. But I’m not blind by any means. I know exactly what will be coming. Only I know it will be even more because we’ll also have a 2 year old to manage as well.
But I’m still just as excited.
Baby number two coming soon.
We’ve been down this path before. We know there is a big waterfall ahead with sharp rocks at the bottom. But we can still boldly say, “Bring it on!”
Thank you for reading.
