This is our fourth and youngest, Matthew. The shirt belonged to our third, Nathan. I thought we would be giving this one to another family (the shirt, not the kid), because the plan was for Matthew to NOT be a big brother, at least by blood…
You know what the Bible says about plans.
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” (Proverbs 19:21)
Despite a couple of things done to keep us a family of six, God had another plan. It looks like it includes another Davis. And a genetic Davis at that. We will be welcoming our fifth (gulp) baby sometime at the end of the summer! I’m back to maternity clothes, naps, buying baby clothes (because I’ve given them all away) and planning my diaper stockpile.
In case being unexpectedly pregnant wasn’t enough, we moved! When I was seven weeks pregnant! We are embarking on a new adventure and have moved from our spacious, comfortable (read awesome) home to an apartment. This was another unexpected change (yet not nearly as unexpected as the baby), but one we feel confident is the Lord revealing His purpose in our life.
I am finally moving out of the yucky stage of both the pregnancy and moving and am getting more motivation to start functioning again, which is good for my family, my home and the blog!
A big thank you to the amazing women who work with me on this website for picking up the slack over the last two months and to the readers who have cut me some slack without even knowing what was going on in my life. Your grace and kindness has been such an encouragement to me.
