28...and nearly 22 weeks

Well, I'm older today. Do I look any different?
Just fatter huh.
Yeah, that's for sure. That shirt I have on doesn't help any either.
Tommorow I see the doctor...and let me tell you that scale is haunting me. Can't sleep at night. Well, I really can't sleep because I'm so anxious to find out the sex of this baby! Tommorow is the big day.
Fun, and long weeked. Ended with an awesome dessert made by Mel, (I'll have to see if she'd give me the recipe to post, because Mertle! That woman can bake!) and we stayed up late into the night talking. Ok, well 11:00 but that's late to us. Chad and Justin were getting a little slap-happy on us, so we figured we'd call it a night!
This morning as I pulled myself out of bed and glanced at my two boys who had mysteriously made it there throughout the night I couldn't help but just be glad for this day. This day the Lord has made.
What a great way to kick off a morning...and a Monday too!
This getting up early thing to spend time in the word has really done me good. God has really been showing me how I need to change to bring glory and honor to him. I've been reading Proverbs and Phillipians, wrapped up in Phillipians this morning, and I wanted to share this with you've probably heard before, but definately a goodie.

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is commendable, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and recieved and heard and seen in me- practice these things, and the peace of God will be with you." Phillippians 4:8,9

Happy Monday.

Awww you look cute. I can't wait for fun to have something to look forward too and can I tell you I really am looking forward to finding out what you are having. ;)

It is interesting the scripture you put up there my friend Lily and I have been quoting to each other on a regular basis because well we both have been going through major stuff and the reminder of the "whatever is true" part specifically has been a good thing to say to each other as we have doubts and whys and feelings that we have done something wrong. And yet it all doesn't hold up to whatever is true....true of God and what he tells us. Great verse.

Happy birthday! Hope it was great.

Philippians is one of my favorite books of the Bible and I have been reading it in a few of my recent quiet times.

Happy Birthday a few days late...hope it was special.
