I wasn’t able to put together a pregnancy post for yesterday because we had a big rainstorm here, and living way out in the middle of nowhere means no internet when that happens. Such is life, but it did give me one more day to collect my thoughts about the past week and where we are heading this week.
I am definitely feeling better and more like myself. I can pull my thoughts together better, but I still feel a little foggy, especially early in the morning and later at night. 4pm continues to be the hour that things go downhill, but things don’t go as far as fast.
It was a good thing I was doing better because I spent the last two weeks on my own without my husband. He was at Phase 1 of OCS for the Army National Guard. During this phase, we had no contact with him.
We are all very thankful to have him home!
This week, I have a doctor’s appointment. I really enjoy Dr’s appointments. It is something to look forward to every month or so because we really like our OB and often spend time just chit-chatting about life in general. And of course, it feels like we are actually getting somewhere in this pregnancy!
I also hop a plane to the Dallas Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Convention! I am excited to see what God has for me to share because there is no way I’ll be doing any of this in my own strength.
In fact, as I was driving home from the city the other night, I was listening to Casting Crown’s Thrive. There is a stanza in the song that says,
Just to know You and to make You known, we lift Your Name on high.
I heard an interview with Mark Hall of Casting Crowns in which he said,
“We aren’t supposed to be great for God, we are just to know Him and make Him known.”
The last several months, there’s been no great about anything I’ve done. Pregnancy is tough. Pregnancy is humbling. Pregnancy doesn’t make me look good. Yet, this is where God has me.
I haven’t blogged regularly. I haven’t read many emails. I haven’t answered many comments here or on other social media. School has been on the back burner. My to-do list each day doesn’t consist of much of anything. I’m feeding my kids food that comes in boxes. I’m feeding myself whatever sounds good. The house is sort of picked up and sort of clean some of the time.
Am I getting to know Him through this?
Am I making Him known through this?
That is what really matters.
