Every experience God gives us, every person that He puts into our lives, is the perfect preparation for a future only He can see.

This week has been a monumentous one for me, for both my husband and I. On Wednesday, my husband, who has been out of work since June, was offered a new job about an hour from where we live, which means at least it will be a short move, rather than a long, drawn-out state to state move that we have had in the past. The other news in even better, though, and something only God could orchestrate. I'm pregnant! This is often a great piece of news for a married couple, but if you know our story, it's even more amazing. If you go back and read http://nlpowers.blogspot.com/2012/05/infertility.html you'll see why. So, for now, I am just trying to grasp the concept that this is real and deny Satan the pleasure of stealing the joy of it with the worries of a first time mom who has longed for this time for so long.


  1. If you know me, please don't post anything on facebook about this, until after I do. Thanks. :-)

  2. congratulations on your husband's new joy, your upcoming move and your wonderful news of a BABY!

    I am visiting from five minute Friday.

  3. Congrats on these precious blessings.
