The wait is almost over....

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Colossians 4:2

Hold my hand and walk joyously with Me through this day. Together we will savor the pleasures and endure the difficulties it brings. I am your Guide, as well as your constant Companion. I know every step of the journey ahead of you, all the way to heaven. Don't worry about what is around the next bend. Just concentrate on enjoying My Presence and staying in step with Me.
(Devotional: Jesus Calling)

I know it's been forever since I updated the blog, but I really wanted my next post to be announcing the arrival of the babies. So much for that. Erik and I are both doing a lot better with our fears and anxiety. Thank you for your prayers during this time. My doctor has given us an end date...Thank the Lord! If I do not go into labor on my own this week, my doctor will induce me on August 15th. It's officially a countdown....9 days or less! I perked up so much when the doctor gave us a date. I've never really been pro induction, but the doctor feels that the girls need to come before 39 weeks. So that is what the date is based upon. My doctor has let me go longer than I thought he would because the girls and I are all doing so well. My blood pressure has been great, I've had minimal swelling, and the girls continue to do great on the non-stress tests. I feel confident in the doctors decision and I feel peace from the Lord that He is in control.

I must tell you how the Lord reached out to me today. My sister and I were shopping at the grocery store (I can walk around more now that I am so close to delivering) and it seemed like I was a public spectacle. People around the store would ask; "You look like your ready to pop, when are you due?" , "When are you due, are you having a boy or girl?". So my answer always has "twins" in it, and this really intrigues people. So after I say twins I get a ton more questions. Two ladies came up and asked those questions and the one woman congratulated me and even hugged me, then she asked if she could pray for me...right there the middle of the store, my sister and I are staring to cry and this woman is holding my belly and praying for me and my babies. It was beautiful! Not accidental by any means...the Lord planned that encounter and it was so amazing. I wish I could be like that woman and just pray for people in the middle of the grocery store. God is so good!

Well my dear friends I must say Thank You for reading my blog, for praying for my family, for loving us and supporting us during this pregnancy. This pregnancy has had it's highs and lows. It was so amazing to find out 9 months ago that I was pregnant with triplets, devastating 4 months in to find out we lost our son Ephraim, and now joyous to know our girls will join the world very soon. The Lord has certainly entrusted us with a lot of pain, but the joy is coming and I know it will be truly amazing! I will be so excited to post a picture of my two beautiful baby girls...very soon!!! Then stay tuned to the blog as this journey with twins truly begins!

Love to you all.
