The day that changed my life.


I found out I was pregnant on March 8th around 11:40 pm. We just returned from a conference about a week before. Leon and I both had a feeling I was pregnant though he took it more seriously then I did by going out to buy the test. I wanted to wait a little longer but he wanted me to take it right away. I guess you could say I was a bit nervous I mean, the results of this test could change my life forever. So while Leon went down stairs to get some nachos. I went to go take the BIG TEST! As soon as I took it I left the room for a few minutes because I wanted Leon and I to find out together whether or not it was a big old "P" or a "N"
 
 I went downstairs to go get my beloved and when we both came back up we looked at each other and I said "Can you grab it Leon"  As he looked at it and smiled he said "It looks like you're going to be a mommy"  I honestly didn't know what to think. I felt like I was dreaming and I needed to pinch myself to wake up. Could I really be pregnant? But sure enough I was! I felt like the biggest dream ever came true for me but a part of me was afraid. This was the biggest change in my life, and I was now responsible for a little life, a baby. plus at the time Leon didn't really have a career so financially I was terrified. But The Lord reminded me that everything would be okay and that He will supply all of our needs. I was reminded of a vision I had at the conference of a precious baby girl. And then the word "Faith" appeared. I didn't understand the meaning then. But that night it made perfect sense. So, I chose not to fear and not to worry because God would supply all of our needs. And just as He promised He did and always will!
And it was about a month later when we found out my dearest friend Krista is expecting. I couldn't have a better pregger buddy!

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9

Hey Carly! Thanks so much for visiting, commenting and following. =) Our precious daughter Evie is due November 17th. We are super excited. She is a very active little girl. So I have a feeling I will have much to write about her when she enters the world.
