it's here. JUNE. the birth month. the one when this "imaginary" baby that i've been carrying will become real. i kept reminding myself this morning. june first. june first! each time i realize it a little excited shake runs through me. i'm ready. speaking of which, i've been getting some feedback about the post where i mentioned feeling "peaceful" as we enter the waiting period for the baby. yes, i do! and i wanted to clarify something about that.

this is not because i am naturally a super relaxed and confident person.

by nature i am pretty shaky, but the Lord has been doing an awesome work in my heart throughout this pregnancy. with the coming of a baby, i've needed His guidance on fear, strength, trust, and peace, and He has given it in abundance. if i shared all of the verses/quotes/reminders i've written down on my notecards during the past months it would be enough fill 10 blog posts, but i want to jot down at least a few things so i can remember what the Lord was teaching me before the baby came.

How exciting! to be so close to meeting your baby. When I was pregnant (with my 4) I used to dream about seeing them for the first time but would never see their face, but once you do see them it is like you have known them forever. I can't imagine a better feeling of motherhood. Enjoy it all :D

Summer, I'm SO glad that I found your blog! I don't know you in real life and I live on the other side of the country from you but you are a blessing!

I love this post Summer. It's wonderful and inspiring to see your deep faith in God and His perfect goodness at this time.
I'm sure I speak for many (if not all) of your readers in saying that I feel so excited for you - having read your blog for a long time and seeing your journey to this place - I cannot help but be excited for you!

Is it weird that I've never met you and I'm still really excited for your baby?

You can't possibly know how timely this post is for me. Really! I needed "fighting" verses from the Word so badly and, to my shame, had put off finding specific ones in my weariness. It's like God dropped a huge gift into my lap this morning. I love that He knew just what I needed and wanted to bless me like that. Summer, God is using you in really awesome ways lately.

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
