Life is Like a Box of Chocolates...

OK, so it's been about 6 weeks now since we found out we're going to have another baby. I still don't think the shock has dulled an ounce, but the excitement has really started to kick in. It's kind of funny that on one hand I celebrate my oldest daughter's 18th birthday tomorrow, and on the other, there's a baby in my wife's womb. Crazy! At the end of the summer when we're expecting, my wife and I will both be 46 (well almost 46 for Katherine), and our kids will be 18, 16, 14 and 0. I have to chuckle :) God definitely has a sense of humor. It's funny how we can think we have things all planned out and have all our ducks in a row for the future, but in reality this couldn't be farther from the truth. Sometimes I think it's easy for us to make elaborate plans, detailed steps and lay out the path we're going to take. However, in reality the Lord's the one who's in control. I can't help but think of Proverbs 16:9 which says, "We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps." He truly does determine our steps. I think it's so important for us to never forget those simple words, "Lord, Your will be done". If we choose to live our life according to this, regardless what happens, our trust is in Him and we know He always has our best interest in mind :) Thank you Lord for allowing me to be living in this incredible moment of time :)
