Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Happy Birthday Creighton

O.k. I am a little behind with birthdays this year and I am trying to catch up. My little Creighton turned 6 on July 17th. I am just now posting about it because mommy was very lazy this pregnancy.

Creighton you have been such a wonderful blessing to our family from day one. The smile that you always have on your face let's us all know how much Joy you have in your heart. You truly are a free spirit and I love this about you. I watch you play and can see how much you enjoy life. I wish we all could be this happy all the time. You teach me so much everyday through your actions. Thank you for being such a happy and joyful child. I pray you continue to live with this Joy through out your life. Happy birthday honey. Sorry it is so late.
Momma loves you.

What a Wonderful God We Serve!

Life is great right now. I have been doing some pondering lately about life and how God is so amazing. Today while talking to a friend of mine about this last pregnancy and delivery I have had time to think about how amazing God is. I really struggled this pregnancy with trust. I knew I loved God and trusted him but I did not trust him completely. There were many different factors that I was dealing with in my life that I just couldn't give to God. Let me rephrase that: I could give them to him it was that I chose not to.

Well now that I can sit back and look at these past nine months God has been doing some major transformations in my life. I am so thankful for all that I have learned. It was not an easy road but when we remain obedient and diligent the Lord will always see us through. It is amazing to me how merciful he is to his people. We don't deserve all that he has given us but that is what is so wonderful about our God he is Merciful, Gracious, All Powerful, Wonderful, Magnificent, Loving, and Trustworthy. Wow just looking at these words makes me stand in awe of who he is.

One last thought as I close up this post. I sit today and look at all of my children and am so thankful to have seven beautiful, healthy little souls to raise up in the admonition of the Lord.

Levi is One Week Old!!!!

Here is baby Levi. He is one week old today and I can't believe it. I am particularly biased because I am his mom but I think he is a cutie. I still have to pinch myself because Sometimes I can't believe I have a son. God is Great.

The Baby Has Arrived!!!!!!!!!

The baby has finally arrived. I went into labor yesterday Sept.13 at 6:30 a.m. Things went pretty well but I won't go into all the details right now as I am supposed to be upstairs resting. So I am sure you are all wondering what we had. Well I first I will tell you that baby was born at 4:15p.m. and baby weighed 9lbs. 4 oz. This was our biggest baby so far and believe me I like them to be just a little smaller. We made it though and mom and baby are doing great.

So I will finally tel you that God blessed us with a beautiful BABY BOY!!!!!!!!!
We are all still in a little shock right now, but we are so happy.

God is so good!!!

Oh yeah and his name is Levi Charles.

I will be back in a couple of days. I am going to get some rest with my new son. (doesn't that sound great)

I'm Officially Overdue

The title says it all. I am officially overdue. I have never been overdue with any of my babies so this is a very strange feeling for me. I am doing o.k. though. I know the baby will come soon it just feels like it can't be soon enough. I think I might be taking the baby ticker down so I don't have to be reminded everyday of how many days I have gone over.

The midwife comes today and i am going to finally have her check me because I want to know if my body has done anything yet. If it hasn't I will be pretty disappointed so let's pray that is not the news I get.

I do know through all of this pregnancy I have been really scared about the birth and I am now to the point where I am excited. Isn't it neat how God can work in our lives in every situation and we don't even realize he is doing amazing things. I spoke to one of my girlfriends last night and she was the one who mentioned this to me. She told me how she would listen to me talk about how nervous I was and now how excited I am to give birth and how God's hand has been at work on this the whole time. I don't know why I have gone over but I do believe God has been preparing me for this birth and he knows that now I am ready. What a great God we serve, he can take our fears away and in return he gives Hope and Peace. I will keep you all posted. Soon, soon, soon we will have that little blessing.

I'm Still Ticking.

Well as you all can see my baby ticker is still ticking. I really can't believe it. I thought I would be holding a sweet little bundle by now but I guess God thought different. I am o.k. just getting bigger and bigger and beginning to feel like baby will never come. Which we all know is not true. It is just called being impatient which I am very impatient right now.

My best friend Susan just flew in on Saturday so hopefully baby will come pretty soon. I am so blessed to have friends and family who care so much to take time out of their busy lives to come and be with my family as we celebrate this new birth. Sometimes I don't know what I would do without them. God has truly blessed us with many blessings. Well that 's about it for now. I am really sorry it has been so boring lately I am sure it will liven up soon.
God bless everyone and keep checking in for the news of #7 will it be a boy or a girl???
