Just some stuff I wanted to share!
(Many of you know that I have had a tough week. I decided after writing this to come back and post this picture. I really love my husband. I am so blessed to have Him. Things are not always perfect. We struggle with our relationship but this week you ladies showed me that I am not alone. Thank you! Marriage is a journey. Thank you Lord Jesus for the wonderful, Godly man you chose for me!)
For those of you that are reading "Go Eat Popcorn" with me, I will not post Galatians 3 on Monday since it is a Holiday. This will give us an extra day to read it again! Some of you post from work so I wanted to give you an extra day due to the holiday. So have a BBQ, go to the pool, enjoy the weather! I know some of you are in states that are still kind of cool, I already envy you. But you get the point, relax. Isn't that what long weekends are for?
It's hot! The Texas heat has arrived and it's not leaving us for at least four months! I have waited for this season for a while now. I couldn't wait to take the kids swimming. I couldn't wait to go out to the lake. We have already been swimming so much lately that Josiah now has his adorable Ken Barbie suntan! You know the kind where his butt is totally white and the rest of his body isn't? Josiah has his Dad's olive skin and I am so thankful for that. Ava Beth is getting a little tan too in her bikini! My kids are living proof that your body can be saturated from head to toe with sunblock and still somehow get tan!! So wear sunblock, even if you want a tan!
God is good, that's all I can say. He is so good. After I received the incredible Doctor's report that the Precancerous cells on my cervix were gone, we decided to wait on having another baby. Ava Beth's birthday is in December, Josiah's in January. So why not wait until the end of the Summer and try for a Spring baby. Apparently, the Lord saw differently! I am pregnant. I must say that I am in shock. I used to always make fun of those pregnant women that said, "We weren't trying. It was a total shock!" If you are not on birth control or not taking precautions, HOW can it be a shock? Well, I am now eating my words! So be praying for us and this little one growing inside. I think this pregnancy is so exiting to me for many reasons that I will share on another day. But on thing that is so cool is it was a surprise! We planned Josiah and Ava Beth, this time we did not. I think I am about five weeks. The doctor will see me at eight! I am thrilled but I do need your prayers! Remember I am helping a fellow mom this summer with two of her four kids. So on Tuesdays and Thursdays I will be babysitting two children plus my own! In both of my pregnancies I have been sick the first trimester. Throwing up galore! So I need good health, energy, and peace. Really I just need prayer for those HORMONES!
Jeremy found out this week that he has Degenerative Disc Disease. We are waiting the insurance company to approve but he will soon have a test run of a steroid shot. Please be praying for him. He is in a lot of pain right now. One of his legs is shorter than the other slightly. We did not know this until the MRI. It has happened because of the damage to the disc. Weird, I know. He is in good spirits and we had a great date last night. The Lord is really working in both of our lives. We can feel Him.
To all of you that read my blog and write the sweet comments that you do, thank you. Thank you for ministering to me. I never imagined this blog would change my life the way it has. You bless me!
