Crossing the Threshhold

Wanna know something cool?
9 weeks to go. And looking at the calender this afternoon I realized the following things are happening before the baby comes:

  1. This weekend (Nov 14-16) youth retreat – Discipleship Now
  2. Following weekend (Nov 22) – hang out with mom and jes and make Christmas decorations
  3. Nov 23 – church baby shower
  4. Nov 25 – childbirth classes begin
  5. Then – Thanksgiving in Michigan and NFL hall of fame
  6. Next weekend (Dec 6) – celebrate Mom’s b-day and Cinci baby shower
  7. Wednesday Dec 10 – welcome our nephew to the world.
  8. Next weekend (Dec 12-13) – live nativity scene
  9. Dec 16 – Childbirth classes end
  10. Next weekend (Dec 20) – FREE!
  11. Dec 21 – last dog training class.
  12. Next weekend – Christmas
  13. New Years – no work (we probably won’t even stay up til midnight on the Eve)
  14. Next weekend (Jan 3) – FREE!
  15. Next weekend (Jan 9-11) – my due date.

That’s right, friends, totally cool! And just think how quickly that all will fly and yet how much joy and laughter will be had over the next 9 weeks prior to the start of parenthood for Matt and me. Granted, baby could pop up any time to add to the festivities, but we’re hoping to make it to January (or at least I’m hoping because Matt thought it’d be cool to have a Christmas baby). But for once, little one, don’t listen to your father.

Alrighty, back to what I do best…

eating a snack.


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
