winds of change

Today felt like a good day to write! I have decided that it would be silly to try and catch you up all at once so here is what I have today.

I am around 24 weeks pregnant and married to the love of my life! I am living my dream and enjoying every moment. Trying to savor it and drink it in slowly. We have Cinnamon Toast Crunch in our kitchen and a kiddy pool in the back yard. I have a home of my very own (well our very own) for the first time since I was 17 and even then it was my mom’s house. But wow does it feel nice that I can unpack, decorate, and dream in this place with my man!

I recently stepped down from my position with the house of prayer and have stepped into a full time position as wife and mom. Since before I can remember this has been my one wish, my one hope! To be a wife and a mom! I remember once in college a friend asked me what I wanted for my life and that was my simple and quick answer. I can still see the shock on his face! Of course I wanted to do many other things and I got to do them all really, but my deepest desires took much longer to come to fruition. Some of it was life and some of it was my choices and some of it was waiting on the Mystery Talker himself and trying to weakly believe that it could happen. And here I am.

I feel like a lot of amazing things are ahead of Stephen and I. I feel like we are holding hands facing a sunset with sand in our toes and the wind in our hair.  I am happy and excited to see what this road holds. Many people in my life have watched me go through so many things and prayed for this day. I believe more now than ever in the power of prayer and the benefits of believing! I am a life that has been changed and for that I could not be more grateful, thankful, and completely undone! What a mighty God we serve!?!

Love,  Michelle
