Mother’s Day and Our Surprise from the Lord

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.

Mother’s day is the perfect day to let you know that the Lord’s given us a huge surprise. We’re going to have a baby, and it will be here in October!

If you know us at all, you know that it wasn’t in our plans to have babies. But obviously the Lord has different plans for us and we’re trusting Him.

As you can imagine, this news is a huge shock to us and is still sinking in! Okay, most of the shock has worn off for Trent, but it definitely hasn’t for me. (I’ll share more on that later.)

We’d so appreciate your prayers as we begin this new journey that the Lord’s taking us on.

    Congratulations! Well, I certainly know first hand that God’s plans for us can come as a huge surprised and we don’t always feel qualified or ready for them but His plans are always the best plans. Wishing all the best on this motherhood journey!

      Thank you Sharla! It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only one that has been surprised. You’re absolutely right, His plans are always the best, even when we can’t see the big picture.
