The rumor is true; I'm pregnant

Hey fellow bloggers...
Some of you may have heard the news and said to yourself "What, there's no way she's pregnant!  She just had a baby.  Only crazy people do things like that!"  Call me crazy.

Ron and I are expecting our 3rd child sometime in June 2009.  (I haven't gotten the exact date from the doctor yet.)  Soon after Luke's first birthday on May 30 we will have another little one.

I know y'all want to know if we are excited, shocked, or both.  We were in shock for the first 24 hours.  Then for several days after that I felt like I had to apologize about it.  When I would tell someone our news, they would give me a look in which I felt inclined to say "I know, it wasn't planned; it just happened".  I'm over that now.  It wasn't an accident, but planned and given to us from our Sovereign Lord.  We're thrilled about this miracle and welcome the challenges and joys that it will bring.

We'll keep you posted on everything...  and I was just kidding, please don't call me crazy.  I don't know if I could handle it in my emotional and hormonal state right now.

SO I was on the phone with Anna and she is telling me that, "Oh, you didn't know Penny is pregnant?" and then your post was there and I read it to her and we laughed outloud at your precious sense of humor. I am right there with you on feeling like you have to explain yourself to people (rude people, who should mind their own business) - glad you are past that. What a joy you are in for. SO thrilled for you!!!

We are so happy & excited for you my sweet friend!! I don't think people truly understand just how words can sting at times (especially while talking to a pregnant woman!) People act the same way towards us, even with a little more than 2 years apart. Children are such a blessing from God, and we are living for Him, and Him through us. How awesome God is blessing you with another gift!

"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them" Psalms 127:3-5
