“it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God.”
Isaiah 35:2 ESV
Time has flown by so quickly over the past few months. I cant believe that I have already passed the half way mark of this pregnancy. So far pregnancy has turned out to be an unexpected roller coaster of emotions and so much more. I am so excited to share this journey with you.
I am now in my 24th week of pregnancy. I have a very busy little boy inside of me. According to my many pregnancy apps he should be weighing close to 600g and be close to 30cm in length. He is already quite a big boy. Over the past week I have felt my belly stretching and am alway amazed that it can get bigger. Another interesting fact that I discovered over the past week is that my little boy is now able to recognise voices. This brought me to tears as I talked with him, it’s so amazing that he can already recognise my voice and some how know that I am his mommy. I enjoy talking to him and singing some of the nursery rhymes I can remember from when I was a child. I will have to refresh my memory on some of these before his arrival. I look forward being able to see his face as I sing to him.
So much more has happened over the past few months but for now I will spare you from having to read through the not so pretty stories of vomit and such.
I look forward to sharing some more of my pregnancy experience with you. I am not sure yet how often I will be sharing updates of my pregnancy. At the moment I am thinking every 1 to 2 weeks. So keep your eyes open for updates.
This is an acrylic painting I did last year. I never shared it with you as I did it during a very hard time in my life, when I looked at it I was reminded of the pain I felt. Despite this every time we have a guest over they manage to spot this painting, which I try to have hidden away. I am always overwhelmed by when they tell me that it is their favourite painting of mine and how they love the colours. This leaves me speechless each time. Until on one such occasion God reminded me of a promise that he gave me while I was painting it. He promised me that He knew what He was doing in my life and it was something beautiful and that I would soon see the beauty in it. He would make my life blossom. At time it felt like just the opposite was happening and I grew to hate the painting. Now looking back I see how God was working and that He did something beautiful and caused my life to blossom. I now see the beauty in this painting and I am amazed at the journey God has taken me on with it. He used the painting and people’s comments about it to minister deep into my heart. God’s ways are truly wonderful.
Firstly, I would like to apologise for my silence over the past couple months. I have had my world turned completely upside down and inside out by someone very dear to me.
I am very excitant and happy to announce that I am pregnant with our first little baby boy. My husband and I are over the moon and can’t wait to meet him. I am now in 23 weeks pregnant and everything has gone well so far. We have past the half way mark and are now starting to count down the weeks. I won’t be sharing to much about the pregnancy now, as I plan to do this in future posts. So if you want to keep up to date with news about our little boy watch this space.
This little man has made sitting in front of the computer over the past couple months almost impossible for me as I constantly had the urge to run to the bathroom to through up, and don’t get me started on the smell of paint. Because this I decided to take an unannounced break from blogging and art in general, until now that is. I am now heading towards the end of my second trimester and feeling so much better than the first few months.
I have made some changes concerning the blog, as you may have noticed I have changed the layout and tried to made it more user friendly. (Although I may still play around with it as I learn more about how the setup works). On the right side you will now find a categories section were you can look for posts that may interest you. My content for the most part will remain the same, as I will still be focusing on my artwork and faith. I will try to post pieces about my art work once or twice a week. But this may not work out as planned. Having my life changed so much I will also be adding pregnancy journal posts were I will be sharing how I am preparing for the arrival of my little boy and sharing some updates about the remainder of my pregnancy. Besides my love for all things art, I enjoy taking photos (I do not consider myself skilled) so you may find some photo’s popping up randomly within this blog.
I hope that you will enjoy the changes I have made and viewing the future content. If you would like to get to know me more you are welcome to visit the about the artist page. If my blog sparks an interest in you please feel free to follow my blog via email. This means that you will receive an email each time I post something. Hope that this will be helpful for family and friends who want to stay up to date with what is happening in my world.
