She’s here! And she is perfect! Born Friday evening, weighing 6 lbs. 11 oz. and 19 1/2 inches long.
The wait is over. We talked about her for so long, preparing her big sister for her arrival. And yet when she came, it was different than Finley expected. She didn’t know what to think that her mommy was in the hospital or in the bed. It took her a little time to be curious about her sister.
Sometimes in life, we long for change. We pray for change. We prepare for change. And then when it happens, it doesn’t look or feel exactly like we expected. An adjustment time is needed. Too often we berate ourselves for not embracing the change, after all, we wanted it.
There is one who is faithful through every change. He is in no hurry for us to adjust; we can take all the time we need to become familiar with the new routine. Soon enough it will become natural. Until then, be gracious with yourself.
Read: Psalm 62:1-2, 5-8
What change are you experiencing now? Is something new happening in your life? Know that it’s okay to have an adjustment time. Any change, even the kind we pray for and seek, can be difficult.
