We are excited to announce an addition to the Getchell family. Most already know, but for those who don’t, SURPRISE! lol After going through the trials of Elijah (click the link for what happen) I was not excited when I found out we were pregnant. I’m being honest whether you like it or not. I can remember the morning I took a test (December 24th) and it said “pregnant”. I lay in bed for four hours asking God “why”? I didn’t want to be pregnant. Life had gotten back to just Shane and I and I liked it that way. It took me a few weeks to become open to the idea – not that I had much of a choice – and to fight back fear of everything that had happen with Elijah. We told our family and even put it out on public blast in a step of faith it was not going to be like Elijah. After our first “proof” sonogram it all changed. I saw a little individual made up of both Shane and I. Our DNA, our characteristics, our mannerisms, our looks but God’s HOLY touch. It’s such a blessing the Lord knows us better than we know ourselves. God knew it was good timing for Shane and I regardless of what I thought. When we conceived in November… I had already ovulated. How’s that for God deciding when it’s time?!?! How could I not want a child that God personally decided it was time for us to have? It tells me that the timeline which will fall out for our child will be filled with divine appointments for all three of us. If even one month later we had conceived – imagine the moments that might not happen…
God knows what He is doing when we trust Him. When you are living for Him – all things work for good. I’m excited now and happy GOD knows what is best for me. I never want to miss out on a blessing sent from Him!
