Here I sit




So, here I sit. I should be out walking laps in the Church parking lot trying to get this baby out... but here I am sitting at the computer blogging my thoughts for the world to see. I'm tired. I feel huge. My feet hurt. My back hurts. I've tried spicy foods, I've tried walking, I've tried bouncing on the big exercise ball. Here I sit.


Again the lyrics to Jon Foreman's song come to my mind... I'll share them with you this time!




Here, my dear
This is where
We'll shake the nightmares free
I dream to hold you in my arms
I dream to hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake in my arms

I think I figured it out
We need to be together
Like the shore and the sea
We are not one thing
We're drawn here together
My ocean and me

I dream to hold you in my arms
I dream to hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake in my arms

Love we sleep apart
For the last time
For the last time

I dream to hold you in my arms
I dream to hold you in my arms
To hold you in my arms
Wide awake in my arms
Wide awake in my arms
Wide awake in my arms
Wide awake in my arms


I can't wait to hold this sweet new baby in my arms, to sing to her, to kiss the sweet smelling head of our brand new baby. To share in the precious moments of this child's life. God knit him together in my womb and He alone knows when and how this child will make it's way into the world. So instead of walking, eating spicy foods and bouncing on balls, I will pray: labor on Labor Day!


Blessings,


Amy

Oh, my goodness- that picture is so cute! I love it! You look so happy, and so NOT huge- you're just all belly! (I know you feel huge, though, I just wanted you to know that you don't look it...)
And those lyrics are aMAzing! I'm going to try to download that song. Still praying - for you all!
