My first blog!

So, I'm not sure how this will turn out, but here goes!  I am not a great writer and my life isn't all that amazing.  But my life is blessed and I am hoping my story has significance in this world.
I am married to an amazing man.  He is wonderful, sweet, and loves me even though I'm a bit crazy.
And we are expecting our first child.  This news makes me want to cry.

I never imagined how I would already love my baby so much.  I can already picture her life (no I don't know it's a girl, but I hope!).  I want her to be happy, loved, and to know Christ.  I want so badly to be a good mom.  To continue being a good wife.  To teach my children to follow God throughout their lives.  To have an impact on someone or something.

Some have worried that I am not excited about being pregnant and having a child.  That couldn't be farther from the truth.  I think I'm just worried.  I've wanted this for so long, I'm nervous that I won't actually get it.  I have been waiting to get pregnant for quite some time.  Thankfully, God is greater than me, and the time has been good.  My husband and I have had some extra time to enjoy marriage.  And we've both been able to watch my sister and brother in law have a baby.  That was definitely helpful.  But this is real.  This is life changing.

My prayer is that God would continue to be bigger than me.  That He would continue walking beside me and helping our baby grow big and strong.  And that I would remember that He is my treasure.  He is my prize.
