Yep. We’re getting a little man come this June! At first I was a little taken back because all my hunches and inclinations were going straight to girl that I was a little set back. But the more I think about all of God’s plans and how he’s the giver of life and what that life will be in light of His Kingdom the more excited I am. The Lord has given us a son and I rejoice in his wonderful gift! Praise the Lord for life!
I can’t wait to dress my little guy and for him to grow up in the Lord. My prayer is Psalm 1 over him right now.
Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
I pray our son grows up to be a man planted by streams of the LIVING WATER, Christ Jesus, and that his leaves never wither or fade. Man, it’s so cool to be praying for a life that hasn’t even been lived outside of the womb yet! We pray for his salvation and his love for God. I pray we have a lot of fun together and we enjoy the man he becomes. We’re also excited about doing a cool rights of passage thing involving the men in our church home when he gets to that point.
Now if only we had a name! haha…we’ve had the hardest time thinking of ANY guy names that we really both like. But don’t worry this child will have a name, and unfortunately you won’t know until he shows up on the scene. Our little secret 😉
Thanks for all the prayers and love from each of you.
