I LOVE my new role as a wife and mother-to-be! I am thoroughly enjoying every day of this new life God has placed me in, as I continue to learn more and more about what it is to be a Christ-honoring wife and homemaker.
The past several months have been a wonderful time of learning, new experiences, growth in several different areas of life. I have had a lot of fun organizing, decorating, and working in our little apartment, as well as watching and learning about all of the multitudinous farming ventures that are going on around us (and participating in a few of them, as time and opportunity allow 🙂 ). I’ve REALLY enjoyed cooking – especially searching out new recipes and trying different things that I wouldn’t have taken the time for before I was married. And of course, a good bit of time has gone into preparing for the baby – whether it’s reading about pregnancy and birth, attending classes and midwife appointments with my wonderful husband, thinking about how to organize our home and lives to accommodate this new little blessing, or simply taking more time to rest than I ever needed before!
I’m still learning about life from this new perspective of being a wife and mother, with all of its accompanying responsibilities, challenges, and joys. But God is good, and I pray that, by His grace, I will live every day, tackle every task, and enjoy every relationship that He places before me for His honor and glory!
