I am Feeling Wonderful!!

I am 12 weeks today. Yeah!!! I am feeling great. The sick feeling ended about two weeks ago. I woke up realizing I had not been feeling nauseous. I started to wonder if everything was okay with the pregnancy. I quickly threw those fears out the window and praised God for blessing me with a good First Trimester.

My first trimester was not bad at all really. Yes, I complained a bit but in reality, it was good. I had some bouts of vomiting but not serious. The nauseous was come and go, and the foggy, emotional mind was---well, a bit hard to handle. But with much prayer and asking God to lift this fog--He has been faithful. I am still sleepy but just in the afternoon and around dinner. I don't normally take naps during the day because I feel I need to be doing something. I have decided to exercise during the afternoon when the tired feeling is setting in. If I get my blood pumping then I will feel refreshed. But of course I will rest and nap when I know I really need it. I know I am growing a baby and my body needs this rest.

I have also taken on some new diet changes. I had mentioned before that I want to have a healthy and whole pregnancy. So, I have kicked the coffee out the window and my regular breakfast and traded it in for Meta Greens and lots of fruit and veggies. I told a few friends that I am on the Raw Foods kick again. I hope I can stick to it. My desire is to feel good and have lots of energy. Eating fresh raw fruits and veggies is so good for the body. It does make a difference in energy levels and sickness. I am already noticing the difference in the way I feel---Even though I feel hungry all the time and seems like I am always stuffing my face with some kind of fruit or veggie or smoothies. Today, is better though---I think my body is starting to get use to the "not so full" feeling in my belly. I just constantly have to remind myself that I am eating to feel and look good and the baby is getting more nourishment than I was giving him or her when I was eating junk food all day. I also remind myself of the scriptures that I read to turn my direction to eating healthier. I will share those another day.

And before I end the post today--I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time last week. It was such a beautiful and wonderful sound to hear. To know that the baby is alive and well and to know he or she is being knit wonderfully and perfectly by the Hands of God, brings delight to my soul. Hearing the heartbeat meant so much to me. It was so wonderful.

Anyway, I hope I don't stay away to long. My husband even said I need to start blogging again--Yes, honey I will. As for now--be blessed and thank God for the blessings in your lives and know that He cares about every little detail. Also thank God for the wonderful food He provides to give us energy and nourishment. As it says in Psalm 103 "I satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's"---Yes Lord, I want my youth renewed and feel energized to be able to minister and care for my loved ones.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
