We are Alive!

We are alive!! I just realized that I have not posted anything in February and the month ends next week!

The kiddos are over their sickness and are doing great. They have discovered their new favorite past time of climbing in and out of their cribs. We have only had one injury which is quite impressive with our track record of ER trips!

We found a 3 bedroom apartment that we are going to move into in two weeks until August, and in August we have something up our sleeve.....but that is a later post.

Tomorrow I go to the doctor to hopefully hear the heart beat of our little bean, which I am really excited about. I am still experiencing morning sickness (or evening sickness really!); the doctor prescribed me Zofran which has worked great up until the past two weeks. As weird as it is, I am encouraged by the throwing up, since it is a constant reminder that our little baby is growing. The only thing that is giving me a really hard time this pregnancy is my self control, or lack of. I have found myself crying, being tempted towards anger and most of all lacking joy. I really realized this yesterday after getting a hair cut that I really don't like, just crying and letting my bad attitude ruin the whole evening and morning. After being freshly convicted of this and repenting imagine my surprise when I pulled up Girl Talk this morning and saw this A whole series on emotions, but not just emotions, but the temptation of hormonal emotions....

1 Corinthians 10:13 “God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”

I'm glad to see you're alive and well....I've been wondering about you. I can totally relate to your lack of self control (in pregnancy and normal settings!). Your honesty is refreshing. Are you poking out there yet???

Eileen, let me tell you... you have been a big encouragement to me as I've been going thru what i'm told is an "easy" pregnancy. From the beginning when I asked if giving birth was awful and you said,
"Oh yeah!... I think. I don't really remember to be honest. When you hold her in your arms you won't either."

And to watch you serve and bless Dena Saturday with such cheerfulness when you had been pukin' not long before - God is honored by your love for others that is loving Him. Thank you for being my friend and for being a wonderful example of laying down your life. I love you.

I talked to Christopher on Sunday and he was quick to praise your heart of perseverance thru this pregnancy and sacrifical care for your kiddos. I know God is showing me how to love my little Eva in how you love your family. Thank you!

Emily (i'm praying for you)
