Have you ever experienced a season of reaping from what you have sown? If you haven’t, it happens to everyone at some point in life. Well, I am so excited for my bestie from high school Crystal because I’ve watched God bless her and Molson this season with a new beautiful (and massive) home, a new teaching job, AND a new baby in her womb. Most of my friends from back home in Texas are mothers now, Crystal and I were the last to not have kids. But I watched Crystal and Molson intentionally set out to have a child once they got married last year and I’ve prayed with her and for her as she faced the challenges of getting pregnant. She started a vlog on youtube and shared her heart with other women who struggled with fertility and now she gets to share how God is faithful!
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. – Psalm 127:3
I’m having so much fun discussing potential names with her. She thought about Helo because she loved Battlestar Galactica so much, not because it means Sun. Crystal cracks me up. And I’m so excited about having my first god-baby :). She’s an inspiration to me to keep the faith in the dreams and hopes in my own heart and to trust God in the coming year, as always.
Congrats Crystal & Molson. God is so good.
