"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Day 21: Rest on a stressful day

Some words I wrote during my walk yesterday morning:
Rest in the peaceful moment of now.  Not in what was or will be.  But now.  Right.  Now.
This moment will never be again, though many similar may occur, this is the only one perfectly like this.  Be filled with the peace of Christ that surpasses your understanding.  Just be still.  Be still and know that God is faithful.
I didn't know how much I would need those words going through the day yesterday.

It was a little stressful.  First, there was a baby registry issue, like a big one (it corrected itself, but it was stressful at the time).

Then I went for my first non-stress test for baby, and that did not go well.  I was sent over to the specialist for an unexpected ultrasound.  This was the first appointment that Josiah had not come with me, so I was texting and calling him trying to explain what was happening, when I really didn't know. 

Baby's heart rate was really high and then would drop down to a normal rate, but when I went to the specialist it wasn't happening.  So I am now banned from caffeine for the next 8 or so weeks (I had hot chocolate yesterday morning and that might have been the cause of the issue).  (I already told my sister that I will gladly accept gifts of (dark) chocolate bars in the hospital after baby is born and that they better serve chocolate milk.  I won't miss coffee as much as chocolate.  But whatever I need to do for the baby's health, I will.)

I'll have to tell this whole pregnancy story some time because it's been the most eventful, but without any real problems, event in my life.
