Married life and pregnancy have definitely changed me. In the past, I never had a huge desire for children. In fact, in my childhood and teenage years, I wanted to be a nun. I even gave it a try a few times, but there was always something that called me away from that lifestyle. Sometimes we don’t always see the big picture, and this was very true for me. I often wandered through life searching for something and feeling empty. I knew God wanted me to do something but I just didn’t know what it was. I was willing to accept whatever His Will was, I was even content with living the single life. But He had other plans for me. One day, when I least expected it to happen, He led me to a really great man and we had an instant connection. I can’t even begin to describe how I felt. I’ve dated and had relationships, but I wasn’t really happy…I have never experienced love, until I met my husband. It was amazing. And one year later, we were married! To some it seemed like we moved fast in our relationship, others even gave us grief about it. But to my husband and I, everything felt just right and we believed it to be the path that God wanted us to take.
Now, we are expecting our first child…we are thrilled to start our family. What a blessing and absolute joy! I find it interesting just how much I’ve grown as a person and changed because of this pregnancy. I’ve said it so many times and in my other posts, but God truly does work in mysterious ways! Who would have thought that this city girl would be happiest living in the country with an amazing husband and baby on the way.
