sums up my morning

meet my lewis. i found him this way this morning and had to post it. i think he was having a rough morning.

this morning i was feeling like this too. a little emotional...pretty sure most of it is hormonal but after my morning devotions with Jesus feeling like a lot of it is spiritual. sweet m is in india and my heart is burdened for things her heart is burdened for. i can feel a part of what she is experiencing. but the word of the Lord is so good to calm and quiet our hearts and lead us into deeper prayer.

today i am incredibly grateful for...the Word of the Lord. the bible is filled with words that just refresh my soul. thank you Lord for the gift of your word.

nesting::part two


upgrading our small compact hybrid for something bigger and safer for the baby. the Lord blessed us with an amazing deal and we couldn't be more excited. we still have the hybrid for the fuel efficiency but who knows if we will ever want to get into the smaller car after being in this one.

today i am incredibly grateful for...the blessings the Lord bestows upon us. we are blessed!

wed night dinner


we had a delish cobb salad with organic mixed greens, organic bbq chicken, sliced egg, homegrown heirloom tomatoes and yummy bacon. j also made homemade breadsticks.
tonight we celebrated our katee. she launched her new website using a new nifty program, showit sites. she was quite excited. as she should be. her site is beautiful. it inspires me to get my stuff online. thanks j for the yummy dinner and thanks jk and katee for the laughs.

today i am incredibly grateful for...the precious life the Lord has blessed me with. i can feel it move constantly.

the most incredible baby shower

it was a beautiful shower that dear j threw for me. not one detail was left out. there was delicious food, personalized water bottles, the cutest cupcakes, a winning ticket, words of advice for me, beautiful colors that all tied into the style of how i want to decorate the baby's room, and much more. the love she poured into it was completely tangible. thank you to everyone involved in helping put it together as well as sharing the day with me. i am blessed.

today i am incredibly grateful for...the most loving friends and family. without each of you i wouldn't be able to do this whole "mommy" thing. the Lord truly has blessed me with each of you!

wed night dinner...resumes


tonight we resumed our wed night dinner at j's lovely home. but this one was different as it revolved more around the republican national convention. after a lovely dinner of chicken with gravy, brown rice, green beans and a delicious salad, we sat around the television (with flags in hand) and watched the historic speech of governor sarah palin, the vice president nominee. it was quite the speech and we are so proud to be supporters of the mccain palin ticket.

today i am incredibly grateful for...the mccain palin ticket.
