Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! We were super busy and gave it our best shot to take every opportunity to seize the moment and spend lots of time with Emme making fun memories. We colored eggs, took a day trip to the beach and spent yesterday morning at church celebrating the resurrection!
Here's a picture of our family Easter morning...and yes, this is likely to be the only picture you see of me sporting the Will "bump". :)
Yesterday's church service was moving in many ways. It was so great to sit there and really think about the sacrifices made for me, for my family and for sweet Will. I am BEYOND grateful for the sacrifice Jesus made so we can have eternal life. This promise brings me much peace during all the unknowns with Will, and yesterday it was so nice to think about how important it is to let go of all the worry and let God handle it.
At the end of the service, our family was presented with a beautiful prayer quilt in honor of Will. It was so touching to watch as many people from the congregation went up to the quilt after the service and said silent prayers for Will and then tied a knot as a visible reminder of their prayers. I really can't put it into words, but knowing how many people are praying for him is beyond comforting. As a mother, sometimes I feel like I can never do enough or say enough prayers for him, so seeing how many others are also praying for him makes me feel much better! :) Did I mention the quilt itself is beautiful? I love all the colors! It's currently hanging on Will's crib and I'm planning to take it to the hospital with us when he's born. Speaking of that, it's only 22 days away!
Thank you again to everyone for your continued prayers and support. I am beyond humbled and appreciative for every single blog comment, email, card, etc. Things are pretty hectic these days and my energy levels are starting to decrease a bit so I'm not always the best at getting back to you quickly, but I do read every single one and think of them often.
I also continue to pray about how I will ever pay all of this support forward. I have so many ideas swirling through my head about how this whole journey can be used to glorify God when the time is right. I don't know the answer to that yet, but I pray that the answer and guidance will come when the time is right.
Thanks again for everything and stay tuned for some fun house projects on the blog this week!
