Sometimes you just have to go with the old saying “my cup runneth over.” That is just where I’m at today.

I have felt at a bit of a standstill babywise over the past few weeks. Small kick and an increasing waistline daily reminded me that there was someone there, but I have been dying to know who. Having been so confident of it being a son at the beginning, I began to doubt, not God’s leading to pray for a son, but that maybe this child was not my son. Afterall, who am I to presume that God would allow me to be so involved? To ask and actually receive?¬† I began to toss around the thought of 3 girls. Fun as it could be, I couldn’t picture it.

The definite revelation by the ultrasound tech that I am in fact carrying my son has rocked my world today. I am overjoyed with the gift and humbled at the responsibility. I am giddy to have another piece of the puzzle of who this child is. I am floored, literally, that God would call me to be so involved in this. I have thought about this boy for years. Last year I felt like it was the time to really pursue my son in prayer. I felt a continual prompting, “Ask me again. Let me do this.” I had sweet friends pray with and for me.

Who am I that I should ask and receive?

I am so excited for this boy and his little life. I am so excited to tell him what a gift from God he is. I cannot wait to tell him of how his life has been dedicated to God since before he was born. I can’t wait to share our little home life with him and watch him discover this amazing world. It’s going to be awesome.

I have the Buddy Holly song, “Oh boy!” playing over and over in my head. I suppose you think it’s weird since it’s a love song for a couple, but I feel like it may be our song.

All of my love
All of my kissin’
You don’t know what you’ve been a-missin’
Oh boy, when you’re with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me

All of my life
I’ve been a-waitin’
Tonight there’ll be no…hesitatin’
Oh boy, when you’re with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me

Stars appear and shadows are falling
You can hear my heart a-calling
A little bit a-lovin’ makes everything right
I’m gonna see my baby tonight

All of my love
All of my kissin’
You don’t know what you’ve been a-missin’
Oh boy, when you’re with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me
