Bumpdate

Bumpdate

How far along?  FIVE months!! Wahoo! Feeling: Been feeling pretty good.  Morning sickness is beginning to end (praise the Lord!) and I have some energy in the morning and in the evenings if I rest in the afternoon.  Even though we have come up to the week when we lost our stillborn, my heart is still so confident in the Lord that He is answering our prayer.  Not worried, simply trusting.  Maternity clothes:  Definitely wearing maternity bottoms…. people still keep telling…

Provision

Provision

Several years back when my husband and I traveled for missions work, we saw the Lord’s provision (and protection!) in amazing ways. We would get our bank statement each month and the numbers just didn’t make sense on paper!  We were making so little money and yet each month we managed to either stay the same financially or we got a tiny bit ahead. It has been that way all through our married life really.  Working in ministry, we don’t…

Raising a family

Raising a family

Since we still feel like we are kinda new at this whole parenting thing, any chance we get to talk with parents who seem to have done it *right* are parents we WANT to talk with. A few weeks back at teen camp we discovered that the camp speaker (a preacher from Colorado) had raised 4 children now adults and all love the Lord and are serving Him.  Something that seems rare to find these days.  It seems that many…

Thought Provoking

Thought Provoking

I saw this today and it definitely made me stop and think. What am I living for? Are the petty worries that cloud my thoughts worth Christ dying for? Are the things I find worthy to stress about, worth Christ dying for? Is the desire to please others more important to me than my desire to please Christ? Am I living a life that is worthy of Christ’s death for me? It caught my attention and simply thought I’d share.

Baby Update

Baby Update

A few days ago I had a Dr. appointment and though I was nervous as all get out waiting and waiting for the Dr. I was SO thankful for the good news we were given!  My Doctors office is actually pretty great about not having to wait forever to see the Dr…. unless of course you really just want to get right in and hear your baby’s heartbeat and THAT’S when it seems to take FOR-EVER!  🙂  Isn’t that how…

Happy Birthday, Little Miss!

Happy Birthday, Little Miss!

On this day 5 years ago I was in pain!  The greatest pain of my life, actually. Five years ago I was in labor with our first little baby.  I was already a week past my due date and we were scheduled to move out of state in 10 days.  My Dr. had already tried inducing me twice before and on this day she came at me with the real stuff 🙂  Pitocin was started at 6 in the morning…

Walking By Faith

Walking By Faith

It has been a bit on the crazy side over here in our neck of the woods!  Summer is definitely a busy time for us, but it’s been a good busy! The last several weeks the Lord has really been working hard on my trust in Him.  How much do I really trust Him?  How big am I willing to pray? A few weeks ago I felt burdened to begin praying for something big.  Really big, to me anyway.  When the…
