We get to see firsthand our miracle babies that the Lord has carried through these past 32 weeks. We get to witness His faithfulness and His ALWAYS good and just ways, because of who He is, and not because of what He's done for us. We get to see a chapter close on one part of our journey, one very scary, but faith filled chapter, and allow the Lord to work through the next chapter. We get to look back and say "See what the Lord has done for us" and thank Him for his love and faithfulness that we so do not deserve. We get to hold on to His promises when it may seem difficult or unbearable, and remember how far He has already brought us.
I still can't believe we get to meet our baby girls in less than 24 hours. The past 2 nights I haven't been sleeping, up almost every hour wide awake just thinking about them and what it's going to be like having them outside of my belly. The past few weeks has been filled with so many different emotions, one day I'm crying, thinking of how nervous and worried I am about the unknown, and the next I'm beside myself with excitement, feeling so blessed that the Lord has brought us this far and has allowed us to go through this. Jordan and I went out to dinner last night as our last date night before 2 kids, and we were saying how even though this has probably been the toughest few months of our lives so far, we are so grateful that the Lord allowed it to happen, and know He has used it in our lives individually and as a couple, and even more as parents. What better way to bring your babies into the world than being covered with prayer and surrender to the Lord? And that is obviously something that the Lord needed to keep clear in our minds, and wanted us to take very seriously. I can honestly say that I have never felt closer to my husband or seen his selfless love towards me more than these past months. He keeps amazing me with his support for me and our girls, and I know that it is because of what the Lord is doing in his life. I could go on for days looking at how faithful the Lord has already been to us, and the girls aren't even here yet. It excites me so much to see how He is going to use them. Their tiny little bodies are already living testimonies of our great God and all that He is capable of. Thank you Lord.
Jordan and I want to thank each and every one of you for your prayers and support to us, from day one we have felt so many people come around us with so much love and prayer, and we are eternally grateful. Thank you for taking the time out of your precious lives to pray for our little family.
We finally finished the girl's nursery, and all is set except for mattresses for the cribs and a few little odds and ends, but here is a little peek into their new home in a few months...
(our last night out as a family of 2!)
