Well, I told myself that by the end of today, I wanted to have a clear enough picture of where God wanted us for the next 8-12 months, that I’d be able to blog about it. I got the picture loud and clear today.
The four of us are going to work on just being a family this year.
Yup, you read right — the 4 of us. The news is generally out, so I apologize to the people we didn’t get to in person. We’re going to have another baby.
I’m gonna be honest, this is not where I thought we were being led… but I’ll readily admit, I’ve been wrong before. And it turns out I was quite wrong this time, and I guess I owe a few people an apology for that.
Nonetheless, its been a blast, and I’m honestly kinda happy for the opportunity to focus on us for awhile. No one has ever given me permission to worry about my own health, and I’ve always been the kinda guy who just tries to push through everything — and I guess I’ve carried that into family life.
But there’s no pushing through this one — its time for our family to grow and to heal and to figure out who we are.
So I won’t say I’m not disappointed… or confused… or hurt, or sad, or any of those other things that come with failure and with change. But I can say with confidence, that I’m at peace, and that I’m ready for this challenge — for our own challenge. For the first time in a decade, its gonna be about us for awhile, and the things God wants for us.
Meanwhile, you’re welcome to drop by and visit with us. You’ll find us together, in our home. Which is where I want to be until baby #2 is ready to face the world. We’ll be back out there again — but not until God sends us out.
