One of Those Days

Sometimes I find myself feeling a bit like our Basset looks in this picture, these days. But I felt like today was the time to share about why...well first off, I'm almost 12 weeks pregnant. YEAH, almost done with the first trimester. So maybe the vomiting can stop now, but if it never does...I wanted to Thank God for giving us such a special gift. We don't know what this punkin will be yet, but we have prayed for 2 years that God would allow us to conceive. And when we'd almost given up-well not Daddy, but me-GOD is GOD! So no matter the sickness, or downing the dry soda crackers, my heart is filled with Joy. To hear this baby's heartbeat, and know that God is Real. There's a scripture that says, "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Ps. 37:4. I don't think that means He gives us what we demand, but I believe it means when we find Him, we find the desires He put in us, in our mother's womb. So I am praising God for the way He knew me and the way He knows our child. May Dave and I, hold this new gift in our hands with care, reverence, and honor for God. And most of all may we Be Love for this child, in a world that can seem so confusing and scary sometimes. So vomit or not, YOU ARE MY JOY!

Hey Julie!
I just wanted to say Congratulations on your new bundle of joy. Believe me, as soon as you start to feel baby webers movements, even if you are still a bit nauseos, it will not faze you! Only greater days ahead, my friend! :)
