Savor. Hold fast. Remember this moment in time, for it is fleeting.
After writing my post last week, I took a step back and marinated in my thoughts. I won't lie, it felt good to get the feelings out of my head and onto (virtual) paper. To express nostalgia for easier times and vent about tough times. Words and thoughts have power and keeping everything inside was taking a toll and I'm so grateful to you for your kind words. They meant so, so, so much.
I am not 100% normal, yet. And until I see final numbers at the end of the month my little worrying part of my brain won't turn off. But, there is MORE peace. There is more JOY. There is more savoring in my life.
Savoring the kicking inside my belly.
Savoring our little townhouse with just the two of us for the last time.
Savoring the lights at night, no matter how late I get home.
Savoring watching Christmas movies together.
Savoring this Advent.
Savoring the hard work and hardship of this season because next year it will be different.
Savoring being 23 weeks and people noticing my belly and sending me well wishes.
Savoring the anticipation of going home for Christmas with my family.
This playlist, especially the first song Light of the World, has brought me much peace and joy throughout this season of life. When it all seems too much I remeber, Love came down at Christmas and the Light of the World was given to us by a gracious God. Through Him, with Him, in Him, life will work and I will be okay.
