The Wait

On January 1st of this new year my wife was predicted to give birth. It is now the 3rd and she is still ripe with child.

I have yet to become anxious but unfortunately as the days wane by the baby grows bigger. As the baby grows bigger I am guessing it creates a more uncomfortable scenario for my wife. In turn my nerve endings are beginning to spark.

I was told a couple days ago there is a reason he is late. It was a good reminder and as I am presented with another opportunity to trust God in a new way.

Patience young grasshopper... Expect to see God's fingerprints all over your son.

(PS - It's okay to cry when you see him take his very first breath).

(PSS - Are you doing the cigar thing? I'll smoke one with you.)

I just hope my tears aren't because the lil' dude looks like an alien.

I probably should do the cigar thing. I'll ask Lukas about some Cubans.

we'll all pray that he'll take after his momma in the looks department!

as far as him being late, i'd rather see him like i see God - always arriving right on time.

filip...
Insolence is only learned after spending large amounts of time in Holland. Perhaps when he is old enough I should send him into your care for a summer. O Master of the Insolent Way.

Prayers coming to you from Boston. I cannot believe you're going to be a dad. You'll be a great one I'm sure. Big life change. Can't wait to hear when he's born!!!
