Lay ‘Em Down

I often have a song of the day, or the time….today and for this time its the song “Lay Em Down” by Needtobreathe. I favor their music in general, but this one kind of has a lot to say about what God is working in my life. Hopefully you can LAY EM DOWN too before life gets crazy….Layin em down is what God wants for us 🙂

Here’s a YouTube with the lyrics- its great.

Also, you know with me being just about 34 weeks pregnant here, I am getting closer and closer to where I am just going to have to count on CHrist to get me through 🙂 Labor yes, but the afterwards too. Exhaustion, being patient although SOOO TIRED, and being loving to my husband and daughters even when I am hormonal. Ha ha. I really am praying for these things now, as I sincerely do not want Ana and Jason to pay the price for anything.

Anywhoo- also reading a great book, So long insecurity, you’ve been a bad friend by Beth Moore. Its her latest and its SUPER GOOD. Even if you think you have no issue with insecurity or that your issues are minor, its still an area of stronghold that Satan could distract you from becoming who God is making you to be…so why not nip it in the bud? However, chances are if you are female you KNOW you have some hang up with insecurity whether its in relationships, appearance, work, etc. so I would HIGHLY recommend this book.  I found it in paperback in the web for one $11 including shipping so get after it!

Funny moment of the day- Ana likes mandarin oranges pretty good. When they are in a fruit cup or a salad she picks them out and eats them. Well, today we were driving and I was giving her bites of her fruit cup (at a red light friends…) and i handed her a mandarin orange. She thought it was soooo funny! She was laughing while she nibbled on it, squeezed it in her fingers, touched it to her face, etc, and LOVED it. Ended up destroying it and not eating it, but she had a good time laughing. ha ha ha.

One more funny moment- at my expense I will share this one as I did on facebook- I spent 20 minutes looking for my glasses today…..all the while they were on my face. Not on my head, totally on my face. I am wondering why it took me 20 minutes to realize that I could see just fine….hmmm.

Excited about my darling friend’s baby shower Saturday. Its going to be FUN FUN! Also looking forward to the folks Jason works with having their lil ones- there are 2 due, boy on Sept 15 and girl on Sept 17.  Wouldnt it be funny if lil Alexis came shortly thereafter too? YAY!

OH lets not forget- the lil sis Rachael James….turning the big 23 on Wednesday the 25th. HAPPY BDAY sis!


Something Beautiful

Sometimes I pick “song of the day”s for my facebook status…..
this one is a “SONG OF MY LIFE”.

Seriously great song in every way- please take a listen 🙂 It’s not everyday you find a song that speaks into your life, and not just your day.

Church and 31 weeks

Church yesterday was great. Ironically, a lot of what I have been feeling and blogging about the last week was inthe sermon….something about words and Pastor Bruce Frank even said at one point, “do you mean them- really mean them?”, pertaining to worship. The sermon was on worship, but it was a refreshing, different sort of message. Jason and I both really enjoyed it. You can hear the podcast here but I don’t believe this past sunday’s podcast is up yet. Once you get to the website you could look up VERTICAL- its the service they have in the evenings that is very contemporary, targeted to young adults but for everyone. The same sermon was given at VERTICAL but they always put up a video podcast pretty quick. Check it out= Pastor Bruce is great to listen to.

I am 31 weeks today….just 7 more and this little one is considered full term 🙂 I am looking forward to NOT being pregnant, yes, but I am more counting down the days until I can hold this little lamb, see her cutie face, touch her little fingers, and feel her fresh baby skin. What a blessing we have been given! I am really really excited to meet her face to face. I am calling it though- I am thinking she’ll be a September baby!

My sister Rachael is such a sucker for her nieces and nephew. She goes through withdrawal if its been while since she’s played “keep-away the passy” with Ana.  Rachael hasn’t even met little Lexi yet and she is already buying half the store for her! Yesterday she surprised us with a brand new glider-rocker 🙂 I used a recliner with Ana, got rid of it when we moved, and really needed something to nurse and rock babies in.  She saw it and couldn’t resist it even though she already has MULTIPLE gifts wrapped and ready for a baby shower up in her room.  She’s so funny…

Saw that our little friend Ethan Cline who is only a few months old has been in the hospital for a couple days with a high fever and sickness…not sure what it is, but the poor baby had to get an I.V…I wouldve cried my eyes out. Poor thing- keep him in your prayers.

OH last AND LEAST IMPORTANT- the bachelorette season finale is tonight 🙂 Who will it be???? All I know is what the commercial advertises- “Its never… ended…. like….. this!” Ha ha ha ha
