One Month... (and Change).

Well, the little one turned one month old last week. Officially, I guess he's 5 weeks tomorrow. But, hey, lets go with the day of the month. It'll make it easier. I'm a little behind, but that's just the way things are right now.

I can't believe how quickly time has passed! I will be returning to work next week (SOB!!). Please pray for my sanity. I'm still trying to get this mom-to-three thing and then to take 20 hours a week away will make it a little more crazy. I know we will definitely find our own rhythm. It may not be until 2012, but we will get there. But I do truly love having this little guy around even when it makes for a little chaos.

Today during my brief quiet time- I think there was a certain someone attached to me at the time- I prayed that God would lead me to a verse that would calm my anxious heart. (The thought of returning to work has been really hard. Darn insurance!) And this is the verse He led me to:

Psalm 73: 26 "My heart and flesh may fail,
But God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever"

I love that! The STRENGTH of my heart. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, because when I think, " I can't", His power is made perfect in my weak and failing flesh.

What a precious face! You know my heart--it breaks with you. However, I KNOW you can find the balance and strength you need. He Who has called you is faithful and He will provide what you need when you need it (the voice of experience here). Love you, sister! So happy you have this boy and so happy to have you in my life even from across the country!
