the day has come. This is Lauren’s sister writing for Lauren…. Because she and Tommy are in the delivery room! She wanted me to give all of you who have been keeping up and praying all this time an update. They went in to the hospital earlier this afternoon. Everyone is doing well… Gabriel’s heartbeat was strong in triage earlier this afternoon. They are prepared and ready to meet their boy. He is on the way. we will keep posting. And praying. For Tommy, Lauren, Gabriel, and Jack. Praying that more brilliance would be added to the glory of God today.
People often ask how we’re doing and what we’re doing with the question of wondering what our days look like now. How do we do each day, what do we do each day while we’re in the thick of this. And I remember wondering that many weeks ago myself. Wondering how we would live each day while waiting to see what happens with Gabriel. I’ll be the first to tell you that I stink at waiting. I’m not patient. I’ve never been. I do think God is molding that in me some now. Because I truly am learning to be thankful for each day. I do find myself wondering a lot what will happen, but much more than that I find myself really counting this time with Gabriel. So while we are waiting for his arrival, and we are very excited to meet him, we aren’t only waiting right now. We are enjoying our days and not just passing them.
So our life looks pretty normal right now. Here are some glimpses…
Going to the zoo.
Thinking about Baby Gaby and praying for him a lot.
Practicing using those utensils.
Waiting for spring!
