Officially no baby this month, as of yesterday morning. I was pretty bummed, and came and got back in the bed and told Noah “no 2011 baby.”
For the longest time, I’ve had just this thing with the year 2011. This sounds silly, but since long before we even started trying, I just knew this was going to be our year for a baby. As the possibility of having a 2011 baby started winding down, it’s just seemed like another part of “the plan” just gloriously blew up in our face.
Whenever I find out a month didn’t work, I always go figure out what my due date would be if I got pregnant the next month. It’s weird I know, but it’s just a way I cheer myself up, and try to focus on the future rather than dwelling on the negativity that just happened. So I went and did that yesterday morning. Want to know what my due date would be if I got pregnant this month?
God has little ways of reminding me He’s got the situation under control…this was one of the more obvious ones though. So I guess “our plan” hasn’t gloriously blown up in our face just yet. But I am also quickly learning that “our plan” has nothing to do with THE plan.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. -Jeremiah 29:11
