The Cliffs of Insanity are very close now!

Thursday, July 02, 2009

This picture was taken around 33 weeks and I'm nearly 39 now. The long wait is nearing its end! I still feel pretty good, except for the times when the baby jabs her foot into my side. She has very strong legs. I don't even feel that impatient yet—each day begins and ends with the appropriate number of hours and Friday comes quickly after Sunday. I'm excited to meet this little girl, but I think I am a tad worried about Life with Three Children. She's so easy to take care of right now, doesn't wake up in the night, and gets her food piped right into her bloodstream. I can't help but feel that life is going to be crazy.

But that's okay. I think a little craziness is more interesting than sanity. I like the kind of craziness that takes walks in the rain and decides to dig up the front yard in the third trimester. After all, "Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe." (I Cor. 1:20-21) Michael Card says it beautifully in his song, God's Own Fool:

When we in our foolishness thought we were wise
He played the fool and He opened our eyes
When we in our weakness believed we were strong
He became helpless to show we were wrong
And so we follow God's own fool
For only the foolish can tell-
Believe the unbelievable
And come be a fool as well
