First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes...

Now that we've been in our house for over a month, the classic suggestive eyebrow raise has practically been a plague, everywhere I go.

We have been married almost 3 1/2 years now, so I can't blame you--It's a question that's practically tied to wearing a wedding ring: "So...when are you going to have kids?"

I appreciate the interest, and I'm grateful beyond words to live in such a caring, loving community. However, Peter and I, though normally very open people, want privacy when it comes to this. We both want children--anyone who knows us personally can attest to our love of babies and youth. We are very excited to build a family together, and start adding little Webbs to the world. We just want to do it between us and God.

So my friends, family, and everyone else--if you ask me, I'm not going to tell you. No matter how close you are to me, I want you to know I love you dearly--but no, we aren't going to tell when we start trying, or when we have conceived, until we're ready. Personally I'd really like to wait at least a month if not more after conceiving before we tell anyone--even our closest friends and family. That's means I'll probably start using the word, "soon" like Jesus does. ;-)

To those of you who know me, I'm a rotten liar. (Which works for me--honesty is super important to me, so I don't even mind at all that I can't break that code easily.) So that could potentially make our wishes a bit hard for me to carry out...

So help us out--when I'm ready to tell you, I will! If it crosses your mind, pray for us. Pray that we conceive easily when God gives us the go-ahead. Pray for whole, healthy bodies for each of us. Pray for wisdom, provision, blessing on WorshipArts and my job.

Also, if I'm sick, or moody, or _____, I've already thought about the possibility that I could be pregnant. Go ahead and pray for me, don't make it awkward for me to stick to our goals to keep this private and remind me that it's an option. Cause I'll just say "maybe" or "I don't think so" until we're ready to share.

Thanks for hearing this out! I'm not upset at anyone--I've been planning on getting the word out about this since we moved out of our apartment, actually, so please no one take this personally. =) I just needed a NaBloPoMo topic and this came to mind. =)
