A New Chapter

Spring is finally coming to upstate New York. Outside my kitchen window tulips and daffodils are growing larger and greener despite the snow we had last week (one has even blossomed). The maple trees are crimson with tiny blossoms that are now falling across the driveway. And the delightful call of geese flying overhead fills me with joy.

With so many signs of new life around me, I find myself contemplating more and more another new life. A dear little baby that I am so excited to meet this September. Now that I am almost 19 weeks along, I am thrilled to feel the little baby kicking within me. Each time I visit JoAnn Fabrics I am inevitably drawn to the baby yarns, wondering if I should purchase a skein of pink or blue yarn. : ) I am working with some cream yarn for now.

Adam and I are so excited and blessed to begin this new chapter of life. We pray that the LORD will guide and direct us.


  1. Oh my dear Sarah, what a precious and exciting time! I am so thrilled for you and your husband and I will be praying for you as you carry this little one and begin this new journey :)

  8. Congratulations, dear friend! How exciting and what an incredible blessing to be welcoming your first precious little one soon!

Sending prayers for a blessed pregnancy!
