This all feels oddly familiar. It’s been a year and a half in one place and now what? We’re moving again! Changing jobs! Looking for a job! Heading to a place we are very excited to get to. But wait… there’s something different this time… oh yeah! A BABY IS COMING AT THE SAME TIME. We simply must be insane. Pretty much everything about our lives is about to change in the next few weeks. We’re sitting at the top of the roller coaster. It’s not the first time we’ve been here and it certainly won’t be the last. That’s how life goes isn’t it? Sometimes its a nice smooth ride with the wind blowing softly in your face, then the next moment you plummet over a drop and fly through a double loop! I’m screaming in a perfect mixture of terror and joy.
Life is so good. So insanely good. I can only pause to savor a sweet breath before the next overtakes it. I can’t imagine how much faster it will go watching our baby girl come into this world and bloom and grow. Graces are granted to each of us for the measure we’ve been given, and this is only the prologue.
“And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle
