Waiting waiting

As i sit here with my 38 week pregnant belly in our new rental apartment, i realized i have forgotten to blog for quite a while. Nope, there won't be apologizing, because why? It's not an obligation. But more like a pleasure to me when i feel like it.
But lately, life has been a lot of waiting.

We moved to Estonia a bit over two months ago now. I was then 27 weeks pregnant, and well flying was uncomfortable even back then. Airport walks were tiring, patience was running low. But we made it. We made it to Estonia which was just coming out of winter. Peter was able to experience all the...

Life when you trust God

Most of my Christian life people have told me that "Mirjam, you are so brave to do this!" But I've personally never seen it like that.

It's been a little over a week and we have moved to Estonia, my homeland. Our new home. It wasn't an easy decision, but it was what we felt God was calling us to do. And that is the only way I have wanted to live my life, even before meeting Peter. Now, as we are together, I am blessed that I have a husband who follows God with me. Even when that means let's move to the entirely opposite side of this Earth and make that our new home. Even when we don't know...

Mommy thoughts - parenthood

21 weeks now I have been a mom. Even though our little one is in my tummy for now - that on its own makes me a mother. Taking care of a child starts in the womb. At least for me and us. I know that baby needs nutrition, occasional gentle exercise (mostly walks for us). I know how I feel comfortable and your body or the baby will let you know when you are doing something wrong. Be it your body making you have acid because you ate the wrong things, or baby kicking around inside you when you are laying on the wrong side. (that last one hasn't happened to me yet, but I've heard that some moms...

Doom and gloom - when your life reminds you of the life of Job

One of the things i hope to do this year is to read more. Which in turn helps me to be closer to God and understand Him more/deeper. Every year i think about all the Bible reading plans out there. And surely i have tried my fair share of them. And failed. So many times. They just often don't work. If i have a plan with deadline (say you want to read through the Bible in a year), life just gets in the way. Same with any deadline related plan. No matter how small portion the reading is. So in that sense, i have felt like a failure a lot! I've tried, and quit a lot of plans. Starting a...

Year review 2017/ goals 2018 - part 2 of 2.

So yesterday's post was full of memories and emotions. Moments we've been through already. So in some ways, this post might be considered even boring. But in other ways, I and we, want to set ourselves goals, because well if you don't even try, then you are gonna be the same. Setting yourself goals and at least trying, even when failing, you have at least some chance of succeeding. You can then tell yourself that you tried. And throughout the year, I am pretty sure I might change and adjust the goals. Especially considering that having a new family member will change a lot.

But as we were...
