more numbers

Forgot to add a few more numbers yesterday.....

Mason's birthday - 01.26.05
Miles' birthday - 05.26.07
Baby's due date - 09.26.09

Mason and Miles' birthdays are exactly 28 months apart.
Miles' birthday and the baby's due date are exactly 28 months apart.

I don't believe in coincidences. I believe in a God that has an amazing plan for our lives.

God never ceases to amaze me with his sense of humor and his sense of timing. After Miles was born I said that I would wait longer if we decided to have a third because 28 months was a little closer than I would like the next 2 to be. Haha thought God. Clearly he knows better, but to put them 28 months, to the day, apart (when we weren't even trying for #3 yet) is just funny to me. It feels like God is showing me in one more way that he is in control. He has a plan. He has a reason. He has perfect timing. Even though I may feel overwhelmed, he longs for me to put my hope, trust and plans in his hand and rely on his strength to get us through the hard first year.
