40! Oh my!

So, here we are at week 40! Wow! I never thought I would be typing that number. But, I am and you know what! It’s OK! I have to say God has given me so much patience through this process. Thank goodness! Yes, I definately have my moments of being sad, antsy, restless etc. but all in all, I’ve had peace. Here is a great verse I have clung to over these long months.

Habukkuk 2:3

“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient. For it surely will take place. It will not be late by a single day!”

So, we dive into week 40 with hopeful hearts!
