Coming Around

When I look into the back seat of my mini van, I can hardly believe it is full, and I can hardly believe that I am going to be adding another body back there. At the same time, each time I check our my rear-view mirror, this scripture comes to mind.

Lo, achildren are an bheritage of the Lordand the fruit of the womb is his creward.
aHappy is the man that hath his quiver full of them.
Luckily, I think I am coming around. If I don't stay too focused on sleepless nights, and how I am going to juggle activities for the other kids with an infant, I actually get a little glimmer of excitement. 
It's kind of like it's contagious. The person in my family who is the most excited is Peter. I can honestly say, this is the first baby since we had Abby that he is "excited" for.  Not sure why he wasn't super excited about Jaxon... I think there was a lot going on with work, and he wasn't in the best frame of mind in life. We all know, since last post, he didn't "want" Wade, or Kaylie. It's actually fun to have him back into "liking" babies. He is, after all, the baby whisperer. Babies love him, and are always happy in his arms. I sure hope that is the case with this baby, because I am going to need all the helping hands I can get!
Also, with obedience comes blessings. 
We sold a home in Spokane. We still have a home, but we sold one. The "albatross" as it were. We lost of lot of money, it's a hard pill to swallow, but in the same breath, it's a blessing. We won't be losing money every month, (like we were) and although the "investment" didn't turn out like we had hoped, we did get "some" out of it, and it is going to help us, a lot right now.  Like, a lot, a lot. We are blessed, and it is amazing to feel that sense of relief. Almost like we are being released from a millstone that has been about our necks for 5 years. 5 YEARS! 
That is a long time. A looooooooooooooooong time. 
With Obedience comes blessings.

Hey, I just read your blog! I didn't know I could access it. Congrats on selling your house!!! That is huge. I didn't know it was for sale. But then again I didn't know you had 2 houses here until just the other day. That is such a blessing!
