Waiting

A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. ~John 16:21
I have to remember that life does not fit me.  I fit into a life given to me by the grace of God. Now I am waiting for another life to enter the world in His time. I have finally given up my desire to have her immediately. Now that her due date has arrived, I am at a place that is calm and stable.  She could come today, or she could come in two weeks. It doesn't matter anymore to me. That is my state of mind at the moment.  With pregnancy hormones I could be crying in five minutes.  I hope to hang on to this feeling for as long as I can.  It is nice to feel content.
