Still Grateful...

I usually wake up around 4 a.m. hungry. So, I eat a banana, drink a glass of milk, and try to sleep. Instead, I end up thinking about life, our life, this life...where we find ourselves now.

And my heart may race. And my mind may worry. And I may wonder what's ahead.

This I know. When my heart races and my mind worries and I wonder what's ahead, if I stop and think about all I have and say thanks, the heart stops racing, the mind stops worrying, and what's ahead matters a little less.

This I know. We will have a baby. A girl. Who we will name. And love...because we already do.

This I know. When I come to The Table and see all that goodness spread out before me, I know that I've been given so much.

grateful for...#266-277

safe travels
gifts of cell phone service
a car to drive
friends to welcome us
clothes for our baby
bassinet, high chair, car seat and other gifts of baby necessities
my parent's house to stay in...all inclusive
my husband's hand to hold
amazingly warm weather that heats my soul
the movement of my baby
passing the DMV test (100%)
clear lungs, clean blood

Sunday evening we went to a Romanian church about an hour away for a Christmas concert. The whole service was in Romanian and was made complete with sarmale and cozonac. Here's a picture of us all dressed up and ready to, 26 weeks pregnant with baby girl and looking quite plump. :)

holy experience

When we come to the Table...oh, how we forget. He sits waiting for us. You are so right. We have much to be thankful for. Congratulations! May your expectancy be joy-full and healthy. May peace and all of God's richest blessings be yours.
