sweet summertime

One of the blogs that I often read is The Little Princess Diaries. She recently gave birth to her second daughter, and I love reading about their little adventures. She is on maternity leave right now and recently wrote a post about how much she loves spending the summer with her girls.

And that made me think: if I do not have the luxury of being a SAHM with my children (which I hope I will be!) then I definitely want to take my maternity leave during the summer and plan my pregnancy accordingly. I know this sounds crazy - it will probably just happen when it happens - but if I have any control over it I think that being off during the summer with my baby would be ideal. How relaxing does it sound to be poolside all summer with nothing to do but read and be with my baby?

I do have to say that God is the authority on when we will have children, and only He knows when the timing is right. I trust in Him to guide us and know that whatever happens is in His will.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile." - Jeremiah 29:11-14
