“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.”
– James 1:17
Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. Between spending two and a half weeks in Oregon helping my family move, the coronavirus madness, and now living with a household of ten, busy has been the name of the game. All sense of “normal” has been uprooted for the time being – but that’s just how life goes, isn’t it? It ebbs and flows and we constantly adapt to the changes that come our way.
Another upcoming change is that we are expecting an addition to the Klement family! Our sweet little rainbow baby is due September 4th, and we are so very excited.
This pregnancy has been a strange time for me. While I haven’t felt as downright afraid as I had anticipated, I’ve kept it at a distance, not daring to hold on too closely. Despite my growing belly I still find myself almost forgetting that I’m pregnant. We’re just living life; cooking, cleaning house, reading Vivian books about being a big sister and how babies grow, my jeans gradually hugging me tighter and tighter until I finally succumb to putting on the maternity pants I bought when pregnant with Jude.
On Friday, I reached 18 weeks; almost halfway. That same morning, Andrew and I felt our little one move for the first time. Suddenly I could believe that there really is a tiny life inside of me.
I feel blessed and incredibly undeserving.
Vivian of course only has a limited understanding of what “big sister” means, but she is so excited at the prospect of having a baby join the family!
God is good. That is the one sure thing amidst this crazy, uncertain life and these fear-ridden times. Whatever happens, we serve a good and faithful God who works for our benefit.
Hopefully this brief update finds you doing well and staying healthy. My family is currently living with us while waiting for their house purchase to close which, while perhaps a bit snug, has been a blessing. It has been nice to spend this time of quarantine together, rather than in total seclusion. I am hoping to use this time productively and get some more blog content put together for you all.
What good things are you finding during this unique season?
