Pregnancy often brings with it new emotions, new thoughts, and new aches and pains. It is just a fact of life, literally. Bringing a new life into this world does not come without changes and sometimes those changes are somewhat painful.
One of my favorite “remedies” for these aches and pains is a nice warm bath, complete with candles and soothing music. Indulgent? Maybe. Medicinal? Definitely!
But beyond that, this is the time of day when the house is quiet and I can start to quiet my own soul. This is when I can take the time to marvel at the new life the Lord has blessed us with. This is where I can cry out the Lord when I am missing my dear, sweet Emmy. This is where I can talk to God without interruption. As I take time to slow down, the aches and pains begin to subside and the calm I need in order to fall into a sound sleep overtakes me.
