HOPING FOR THE FUTURE

People often say that you need to visualize what you want in life and ‘see’ yourself accomplishing those things. No need to tell me to do that – you could tell me that there’s a 0% chance of me getting pregnant and I’d still find myself daydreaming of my little kiddos running around. Even though there were times I’ve felt far from hope, there was never a time I was completely hopeless. And I praise God for that!

I’ve bought baby name books, baby books, booties, and even a really hip diaper bag that I just couldn’t pass up! I daydream and I hope for the future. I think about what how I can decorate the nursery and baby names. In fact, we already have a middle name picked out for both a boy or a girl! But one of my favorite things to daydream about is how to tell people we’re pregnant. Oh, how that will be such a long awaited joy. I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

As I sit in church, I wonder when it will be that we will be up there by the alter watching our baby get baptized. I even think about to when we have teenage children and picture them being involved in sports, band, etc. I wonder what hobbies they will like and what their personalities will show. I wonder if we’ll still be living where we are and if our children will get married in our church. I wonder what age we will be when we become grandparents and get saddened by the fact that we probably will never be great grandparents.

I choose to hope for the future. I may not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future…
