Waiting...

Long before my due date I tried to repeat to myself, "Two weeks late is right on time." I don't know what happened to that mantra on December 11th, but I seem to have my wits about me again. It just took a few days. There is something about going past that "Due Date" (music playing in the background when those words are uttered) that is enough to make any pregnant woman go a little nuts. This morning when I was complaining, um, praying, the Lord reminded me of Psalm 139:16: "Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written, The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them." Baby Hayes' days are pre-ordained! I haven't messed something up and caused him to not want to come out (yes..this has been a serious concern of mine!) and it's not some stress that I am carrying around that is preventing my body from doing what it needs to in order to birth this baby! His days are already decided and I am just waiting on the Lord's plan to unfold. Now, that is something I can get behind!

Hey Susan! Just wanted to say I am thinking of you. Ellie was a week overdue. It's so hard to be patient during this time. I remember feeling like, "well, I thought I was going to have a baby, but I guess I never will". It's so funny what it does to you to go past your due date. Hang in there! I know you will meet him very soon.
