Hello ladies and gents,
I am sorry I have been MIA. Life is crazy busy here. I am trying to settle the dust on many project that have been limbo for too long of a time... and plan and prep for the fall semesters (for 5 kiddos - 3 official and 2 wanna-bees : ) (yesterday I had to make my newly TWO yr old a "school" binder like all the other kids so she could do "her school work" with the rest of them.) geezish..... so that is all completed and ready to go when our newest little blessing arrives mid-Sept. I am really tired almost every day so I am battling against that as well so I am being cautious as to what I work on. My standard line: PRIORTIES, PEOPLE, PRIORITIES! My current deadline is July 30th, to slow way down (around 35 wks) so for now I am trying to get as much done and settled ahead of time as possible.
I am still doing morning quiet time with God almost every morning, just haven't managed to make it here to blog about it.
I have just come to a realization as I sit here typing how much I miss it and how much it really helps me remember the lessons I hear in the morning with God. So I think blogging needs to be put back on my "to- get -done list" each day, next to shower and make the bed (only because I want it ready to nap in when I am ready to collapse : )
Anyway, I thought that I would post a little update. This is from my facebook page 2 weeks ago:
Baby update: 17 weeks. My wonderful midwife checked and we heard baby for a few fleeting seconds as he/she "ran" past to hide again, first throwing a few kicks at her Doppler. We think the placentia is in front so that's why I am not feeling a lot of the wild little kicks but baby sounds healthy just wild and ornery. Of course! Why should we expect any different from our newest little one? :) Sonogram soon.
I must say, I was very nervous because of the lack of feeling the baby move... the first few minutes as we searched and searched and searched for a heartbeat. OY! Talking about scary... So today is sonogram day and I am really excited get my first glimpse at my little one in there that is already testing my faith and trust in God's plans to give me another activie ornery little one. I will update you and let you know how it is goes.
So today I read the following verse, which spoke volumes to me as each morning my first thoughts when I get into the shower are a prayer of, "God give me strength to get through this day!" Yesterday, my answer was, "I always do, although you know it is not really YOUR strength but **MY*** strength IN YOU" awww yes, how is that for a reminder?!!
So today's verses: Psalm 69:14
But I pray to you, Lord
for the time of your favor.
God, in your great kindness answer me
with your constant help.
May we remember today what, where and with WHOM our source of life stems from! May God grant us a time of HIS favor. Amen.
Have a great day!
