learning to be still


currently i am learning to be still. i am thirty six weeks along and have lots of stuff i would like to get done before the baby arrives, but i am learning that i need to listen to my body and slow down. which if any of you know me is not an easy task. this week we have a visitor in town and i am learning to enjoy the company and where we live as i take her out and show her around instead of worrying if the kitchen pantry will get organized before the baby arrives. i have truly learned so much in this pregnancy thus far and i know i have more to learn as the weeks continue. the Lord is so good to give us women nine months to prepare for the arrival of a child that will forever change your lives. because i don't want to be that busy stressed out mom i know the Lord is using this time these last few weeks to rest and enjoy.

today i am incredibly grateful for...each day that i can enjoy being alive and well.

nesting::part four


getting the extra room organized for my office and for some baby items.

most would probably be getting a nursery ready...not me. i am not about all "the stuff "you have to have for a baby. i would rather keep it to only the needs. the baby will sleep with us in a bassinet for a while then we will worry about a crib. and anything else can be stored in half this closet.

today i am incredibly grateful for...grace. without it who knows where i would be. thank you Jesus!

nesting::part three


sewing a blanket for baby.

today i am incredibly grateful...that i usually get to see my husband daily and have my friends so close.

hubby is at a men's camping trip 'til tomorrow and my closest friends here are scattered all over the place...colorado. india. oahu. it sure is quiet around here.
becks...i don't know how you do it! you are an amazing example to me this weekend. if you can do it for three months at a time or longer, i must be able to do it for 2 days.
