No Longer Waiting

Awhile back I shared with you a song by John Waller called "While I'm Waiting".  This song is one that completely touched my heart, as it spoke clearly about the journey I was on.  Before we were pregnant with Ethan, Monte and I had been trying to conceive for quite a long time.  I had been doing some fertility testing with my doctor and was feeling extremely frustrated that this wasn't happening.  When I heard the song "While I'm Waiting" it spoke straight to my heart about the fact that I truly needed to trust God and keep running the race while I wait for my blessing.

Fast forward to earlier today when I heard this song on the radio.  I couldn't help but shed tears of joy and gratefulness to God for our sweet little Ethan.  I really believe it was important for me to learn to put my faith and trust in God and know that He was (and is) in control.  It took me a long time to really learn that lesson - and it's often one that I have to remind myself of.  Maybe I haven't learned it as well as I would like, but I am still a work in progress!

Today, though, I can rejoice and be glad in the fact that God did reward our faithfulness and our trust in Him while we waited, and He gave us our darling baby boy.

Thank You God.  I couldn't imagine a more perfect addition to our family.  You are amazing and I love you SO much.  I'm sorry that I don't always show it as I should.  Please help me to never take one single moment for granted, because every day is a blessing and a gift from You.
