God's been teaching me a lot about being more open about my needs and asking people to pray for me. It's not easy for me, but I am working on it. Today, God's put it on my heart to share with you about our Babymoon.
Up until last week, Jon and I were not planning to go on any kind of Babymoon. One of the biggest reasons for this is a lack of finances. There are a lot of things that we need to pay for and money is very tight right now. We did not want to dip into our savings to pay for a trip like this, because that money is set aside for other things. However, God has reminded me that it is important to take time away from my busy life and invest some much needed time into my marriage.
In the next few weeks a lot of different changes are taking place. First, Jon's brother Josh is coming to live with us starting the first week or two in July. Josh moving back to the States to begin college and is going to live with us, work, and start taking classes at a local community college. And of course, the biggest change of all will be the birth of our daughter Olivia. Her due date is set for August 28th and she will be here before we know it!
All of that being said, I feel very strongly that Jon and I need a time of rest and retreat to reconnect before all of these changes take place. So, that's why I've been trying to plan a babymoon for us. Right now, it looks like taking a few days before and after the 4th of July is our best bet! I've been able to find some good deals online for our hotel too!
Please keep us in your prayers! Pray that God would continue to provide everything we need as we prepare for Josh's arrival and Olivia's birth. Pray that we would honor the Lord in everything we do and that this trip would be a blessing to both Jon and me. Pray that Satan would be far from us and not cause any kind of division in our home.
Thank you so much for your prayers! I will be blogging about our babymoon soon!!
