Pregnancy Lessons: Let Go

I mentioned in the last post my tendency towards control. I really am generally laid back, but I think because this is so incredibly new and life-changing I feel the need to be in control of it somehow. I think the more I try to control, the more crazy and worried I become about everything and not just about the babies…I find myself thinking about everyone’s health – Andy, my parents, his parents, our siblings, and worrying about his grandmother living in Ohio and my grandmother in Korea, and just everything…What will we need to do if our parents become dependent on us when they get older? What if something happens to us, and someone else will have to care for the babies? What if the house burns down? Lots of random things…

Breathe.

I know God’s got this…God’s got us.

Trust in theĀ LORDĀ and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.” Psalm 37

    One of my fave seminary profs told me that expecting a kid opens up a whole new file folder in your brain for worrying that you didn’t even know you had. He’s one of the most laid back guys I’ve ever met (in all the good ways) and hearing that from him was awesome.
