Today my baby sister had her little boy. He weighed 7 pounds and 20 1/4 inches long. His name is Nathaniel(after my cousin who went to be with Jesus at 17 months) Derrick(my mother's maiden name). I was suppose to be there but they live is South Carolina. I went there last Thursday night(false labor) and stayed until Sunday, but I had to come home because dh had to go to work and Bryson was here with him. I am so excited to be an aunt again. Speaking of being an aunt again, my sister-in-law(husband's sister), went to find out the sex of her baby today. I was in shock, they are having identical twin boys. They will be first set of twins in our family. Sometimes hearing all the baby news, I have to go pray because I feel a little jealous. But I know when God is ready to bless me with another child, I will have one. There is a reason far beyond my understanding why I have not got pregnant again, but God always keeps his word.
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
These are my two favorite scriptures and I know that the Lord is good and I am already blessed with a wonderful family. I hope everyone is having a blessed week.
