Advent Blessing

I am constantly amazed and humbled by the goodness and greatness of our God! Once again our family has been been blessed with a new little soul to love, guide and give glory to God! Yes, we are expecting baby #3. Baby Pohlmeier is expected to arrive around June 9, so that makes me about 14 weeks into the pregnancy. I am very thankful to be finished with my first trimester, and hoping for a renewal of energy in the coming weeks! However, with two toddlers in the house that might not happen!

One of my favorite memories of my previous pregnancies, has been experiencing the Advent Season while pregnant. There are so many parallels between pregnancy and Advent, and being pregnant during Advent has always been a deep spiritual experience for me. A few weeks ago a priest from our diocese gave a wonderful homily discussing the similarities between Advent and pregnancy. He has graciously allowed me to share his homily here, as it puts into words much more eloquently than me the beautiful connections between Advent and pregnancy! Enjoy!
