I have not felt like blogging lately and it could be attributed to that I entered into my third trimester and feeling a little less energetic. I have so many different things to say so here we go...a list of thoughts and things of the past two weeks. Really I am sorry it is long..please feel free to skim. (I think I needed just get it all out and let it be therapeutic to my soul!)
*I just finished Voice of the Wind in the Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers. It is stinky incredible and I am patiently waiting for my library to get the second one in. I am third in line...this could be a long wait. But seriously, I have had such a hunger lately for history and I am sad that I never paid that much attention in school and never signed up for some biblical history classes at DBU.
*We had our first garage sell with Mae, Brad and my neighbor Merry Lynn last Saturday and we made $150 while they made decent money as well. I know this might not sound like much but that was well worth my time and I was glad to get it all out of my house. If I were to offer advice to friends who have yet to venture into the garage sell arena, you have to watch some people because they sure know how to rig garage sells. (mainly take off all price tags, were you don't remember how much you put on it, to get you to give them the items dirt cheap!)
*We have decided to try Houston Northwest Baptist Church for a few weeks and so far we have enjoyed several things about it. One of the things that top our "like" list about this church is our small group on Sunday morning. (for those of you who hate the word Sunday School..I left it out on purpose) Our teacher is a bible teacher at a Woodlands private school and both Jonathan and I are so thirsty to learn. We barely can take in all that he says in an hour. That my friends is a good class. Right now we are in Revelation and wow, he has already had my head spinning. We are hanging back to let God give us a peace about this church. It seems little by little he is giving it to us, but we still miss our friends at HFBC.
*Love the new Geiko commercials. I am still not used to them and they still get me at the end.
*I have been getting sonograms regularly to check up on the baby. It seems that Jack is a tiny one and in the 15th percentile. He is all in proportion, so the doctor is not worried, but of course I have to keep getting checked up on. (so there is a little bit of uneasiness there.) I have 12 weeks left. Or if he comes early like Keegan, 8 weeks. Some days I wonder if I am ready...
*Love the cool mornings we have had lately and all the pumpkins that are gracing the steps of our neighbors.
*We got locked out of our house last Friday for the first time and $80 something dollars later were let in.
*Keegan is in love with my socks.
*Love the Pumpkin Patch store for kids! Oh my... I am desperately holding back my urges to deck Keegan out in one of their outfits until he needs clothes.
*I really feel like I hit a huge milestone in my life this last week. I really struggle with all sorts of fear, especially when Jonathan is out of town. Last Thursday I had to stay in our house alone (with Keegan) for the first time and praise God I feel asleep without much trouble. I have been known to be freaked out to the point of falling asleep after 3 a.m or later. Much had to been attributed to the lesson on fear out of Beth's Esther Bible Study on Tuesday night. I love when God gives you peace and a word exactly when you need it.
*I have been doing some design work lately and earning my way to getting a digital canon rebel. I can hardly wait.
*Lastly, I really apologize for the lack of comments lately. I have been reading your blogs sporadically, and I will one day get caught up on all your lives. So thank you to the ones who continue to comment on mine and made it to the end of this blog! :/
