Wonder

DSC_0026

I am so full of wonder about what this little boy will be like.

Will he be born with a head full of hair? Will he have mine and his daddy’s blue eyes? Will he be a picky eater? Will he like to read? Will he play the piano like his daddy? Will he like to climb trees like I did as a little girl? What sports will he play? Will he love animals? Will he cherish tradition? Will he love the mountains as much as I do? What will he be afraid of? What will his talents be?

The list could go on forever. It’s such an incredible thought to me – especially as I wade through very unknown waters- that my Father already knows the answer to all of my questions. Just as He knows the very number of hairs on my head, He created our little boy with a purpose and already knows how He will use him as he grows.

The unknown is a scary thing… but if pregnancy has taught me anything in the last six months, it’s that the unknown is something I have the ability to embrace, or let steal my joy. It’s a choice I have to make every day, but I am striving to embrace the wonder of this adventure the Lord has set before me with grace.

Two trimesters down, one to go!
