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.

Quick Update

I just looked at my ticker and it says 80 days. I can't believe it. Where has this pregnancy gone?
I was just talking to my Pastor's wife and I was sharing with her that I still don't have that excited feeling yet, and that daddy hasn't even felt the baby move yet. can you say denial? I guess when I am holding my baby in my arms then it will be real. This has been a wonderful pregnancy physically and I am so thankful for that. God is so good after a storm he really blesses us with a beautiful rainbow and I feel like he has done that with this pregnancy.

So, onto other news. My oldest daughter turned 14 yesterday. I don't know where the time has gone. It is really weird because I always get emotional on her birthday. I was up in my room crying yesterday for no reason but I am sure it was because of her birthday. She had a wonderful day and got her special gift which was a camera. We sent her on a scavenger hunt to find it and the final stop was the oven. She was so excited. last night when I went to bed I am sure she had taken over a hundred pictures. Emily we are so blessed to have been given the gift to be your parents, you truly are a blessing and bring us Joy everyday.

Here is our Emily in all her glory. Her cake was decorated blue and she saved her frosting till last for this reason.

Hi Susan~

I was glad to see your comment on my blog post!

I actually do know where Hemet mom's best friend's family lived there, and so we would go there lots and we kids would run and run and run out in the orange and kumquat groves and try to see if we could catch the jackrabbits!!! Ha, they were a lot faster than we were. Beautiful country! Small world, huh??

Anyway, congratulations on having a 14 year old! My oldest gal will turn 14 at the end of July. I'm looking forward to it. Maybe we will get her a camera too; she is great at taking pictures!! I think it's great having older girls because they're so helpful.

Happy birthday to the Birthday Girl!!!

And your pregnancy ticker says "78 days to go"....I have about that much too, maybe a bit more. God bless you!!!

I love that picture of your daughter! So fun!
