And baby makes 4

1. We're pregnant.....15 weeks along
2. It was shocker....
3. I've wanted to be quiet and rest with GOD....maybe like Mary did when she went to Elizabeth's house to ponder and grow the first trimester. Ive sensed the fragile nature of it all....
4. Do you think Mother Mary had morning sickness with Jesus?
5. I HOPE NOT...this is Horrid! I've had it ALL day most days, and STILL have it off and on. I Didnt have it with Bennett, and it makes me want to cuss and cry when i vomit in the toilet. Once Bennett came into the bathroom and mimic-ed....he said "mommy, Bleeeaahhh bleeeaahhh". i laughed and vomited.
6. One of my best friends went ahead and asked me if i was pregnant...because my "boobs were bigger"....ha ha......"Big" and "boob" have never been used in a sentence with my name in it before now. ...
7. Its been hard to rejoice amidst so many of my friends with hard situations....some miscarriages...some having trouble conceiving, some with sick children...my heart aches for them...and aches to rejoice....at the same time.
8. There are lots of fears....i wont name them ......but Jesus has been faithful to show Himself King and keeper of many of them...giving me more peace lately.
"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you" 1 Peter 5:7
9. He cares? for our little fears and anxieties!?
10. He cares for this little baby in my belly....He cares for its well being....its heartbeat...He remembers to care for mine at the same time...for Kevin's...for my friends that hurt..... the Creator cares!!!...This is a miracle...today i take time to rejoice!

Oh, hooray! Congratulations Many and Kevin (and Bennett!). What a lucky child this is, to be born into your family! And I know about the morning sickness. I had it all day, every day with Tessa from about week 7 or 8 to week 16. When it goes away (finally), it is bliss! I will be fraying for you!

I'm so happy for you. Wish I could see you. I love the comment about "big" and "boobs", great. I got to see Britta in NC this past week with Elliot and I asked her about Kristen and she told me about the adoption of her precious baby. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please give her my love,

What a wonderful blessing! (Not the sick part. You are in my prayers for that!!) We just got home from a Gramma visit in Marietta and I'm so glad to hear your news! You have been on my mind and heart a lot these last few months and I have been lifting you up in prayer. Now I know why!
