I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, and a nice fresh start to another lovely week. We are home now, putting the finishing touches on what we wanted to accomplish before the baby arrives.
There is so much I wanted to write, and so many interesting topics I planned to discuss, but my mind is blissfully blank today, and I'm feeling a sense of peace which will hopefully take me through the upcoming labor and birth of our child. I can hardly believe it's supposed to happen any day now. When I try to wrap my mind around it, the sensation is so awesome it makes me want to cry.
Despite the recent happenings in Israel, we remain calm. I think that, for us, the sense of danger was there for a long time. Many concerned relatives and friends wrote to us, to be assured we are out of harm's way; but the truth is, we can't indulge in the illusion of "safety" simply because we are currently not in the line of fire. Our security comes from a different source - the One who is faithful and unfailing.
Thanks so much to all the dear ones who wrote to encourage and support us. I also received several emails with questions regarding some of the recent posts here, as well as other topics - and even though I try to reply to at least a couple of emails a day, however briefly, it hardly seems to be making a dent. I do intend to answer everyone's questions, but it might take time - so thank you for your patience.
In the meantime, I remain in a peaceful bliss of joyful anticipation.
