No baby yet

I wanted to everyone that baby has not come yet. We are trying to be patient. We know the baby will come in God's perfect timing. God has so wonderfully taken care of us during these past 9 months we know He is not going to stop now. Thanks for all your prayers and encouragement to us!

Baby shower, praises

We had a wonderful baby shower yesterday with so many friends from all walks of life attending. We were showered with a lot of gifts that now have formed a mound in our dining room. The task of going through them is daunting, however it is an opportunity for us to praise the Lord for another example of his unending provision toward us and our soon coming baby.

This morning as I was praying I was worrying a little bit about how we were going to do day care for our baby once she is born and Becca goes back to work. Sure enough God spoke to me through His Word in Exodus 33:12-17. Moses in this passage is basically freting about things he doesn't need to worry about; kind of like me worrying about day care. God knows my name and I remain faithful to Him, He will remain faithful to us. Either way a part of God's unchangeable character is Jehovah Jireh, the LORD who provides.

I am so thankful to have a personal relationship with a God who hears my prayers and communicates with me as His child.

3 weeks and counting...

Only three weeks until my due date. I am sure the time is going to fly by. This past weekend, with the help of a friend we were able to get the nursery painted. Chris and I were even able to get the crib put together. We are so proud of ourselves.

I can't believe how much stuff I need to do yet before the baby comes. But, if it doesn't get done, that will be ok. This coming weekend we have our shower, which will mean that more stuff will be coming into the house and more stuff to find places for. That has been the hardest part so far, finding a place for everything.

I am getting anxious and excited. I know Chris can't wait either!! I am so grateful for God's favor in this pregnancy. I am just starting to show a little. I have had no real complications or complaints. I think the worse part has been the heartburn, which I am use to so that hasn't been a big deal. Before I got pregnant, I was worried about all the things that could go wrong, bed rest, gestational diabetes, not being able to find maternity clothes, gaining way to much weight, etc. I feel great and look great, I am very fortunate.
