We found out Wednesday morning that we are expecting! I, Casi, am about 5 weeks along. Just over 2 months ago I could sense something new was on the horizon for us. I didn't know what "it" was, but I had an unexplainable excitement that God was doing something. I began to feel like maybe this excitement had something to do with adding to our family. Honestly, I resisted these nudges. Dan and I both felt like we were content with our two sweet daughters. Plus, life is already full enough.
Dan and I prayed about it and during our spring retreat last month we both felt confirmation that God was saying "Trust me. I've got this."
It's clear, we really need to trust Him! Having our 3rd baby is a big change. Having the baby in Japan brings up so many details. It is too much for me to even think about right now.
Maybe that's why this verse has been coming to my mind,
"Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness."So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me." (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Well, here's God's opportunity to show off! Having a baby in Japan is sure to be a wild adventure!!
