Well, baby Lydia is due in two days. We are really looking forward to seeing her, and we’d love it if Eleanor would go into labor right now. Also, we’re buying a house and I’d love to start getting it ready to move into. There’s just too much time.
But there are so many things that need to be done! Before the baby gets here, I have to square away all of the church stuff and make sure the church will be ready for Christmas (I’ll preach Christmas Eve, but I won’t do my usual preparation, coordination, and publicity work.) We also need to find someone to rent the current house. We need to arrange insurance for the new house, and need to find and set up the baby things. There’s just not enough time.
So I’ve really set myself up, eh? Or I could look at it as winning either way. If she comes now, we get to see her. Yea! If she comes later, there’s more time to get ready – also good.
We’ve had lots of people praying that Lydia will arrive when the time is right. So I’m going to go with that.
