Half-way there!!!

I am almost at the 20 week mark in my pregnancy. That means halfway there---wow! This pregnancy is going by fast. I hardly feel pregnant. I am growing-- in the belly and other areas -- Ha ha ha. But this time I really don't even feel much discomfort of being pregnant. God has truly blessed me and answered my prayers.

I remember with the other pregnancies I would sit and complain about everything. I would say--I am tired; I feel fat; I have back pains; I feel sick; etc... I can go on. Now when people ask how I am feeling, I say---I feel great!!! I also remember how I couldn't wait for my due date to arrive. Now I am just living life and enjoying every moment of being pregnant.

This baby is very calm and quiet. I remember with Tsavah and Kole my third and sixth, they were jumping all over the place. This little one is so calm, I hardly notice the baby there. This is another reason why I feel like I am not even pregnant. I do feel the baby a few times a day. I feel little gentle taps here and there. Maybe I am going to have a calm, quiet little girl. Hmmmmm??? But we won't know who this little one is till the Big Day.

The joys of motherhood are wonderful. From raising up a soon to be teenager to watching my belly grow daily---now this is fun. Thank you Lord for the blessings of children in my life. Even when the day seems so long and "could I take anymore" of the day---I have to sit back and think of God's many blessings and joys in my life.

Missing you! I have so much going on right now. It will all come to a grinding halt when the big kids leave in a few weeks. Glad you're feeling so well!

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
