My Cup Runneth Over

Today was a good day! I feel good physically, even if I don't walk anymore and now only waddle. Emma went to bed last night sick and got sick through the night and woke up sick, but then stayed vomit free the rest of the day! Jacob finished his last Baptism class and will be baptised late next month, and then this afternoon we had the end of the year Awana Awards/Party. To see all those children lined up being recognized for all the hard work they've done all year long is inspiring and truly humbling!!!

I am at a point where I'm days away from giving birth to this precious baby growing inside of me. I feel so blessed and I hope this doesn't come off sounding arrogant, because it's not being said that way at all, it's being said from my heart.....I KNOW how blessed I am to have this baby growing inside of me, and truly don't need to be reminded of this blessing from a spiteful side (which has happened a couple times this pregnancy). I am in awe that for what ever reason I've been able to get pregnant easily. I'm in awe that I've had uncomplicated pregnancies. I'm in AWE that GOD's allowed me to have 4, soon to be 5 children. He did take one home, he took my sweet, precious, wonderful, beautiful Jordyn home when she was 2 years old....yet through the grief of her leaving my arms she got to enter our Lords! Through that grief he put new life inside of me, not from my or Chad's desires, but because he knew far more than we did! How thankful I am that Chad and I have and continue to trust GOD with our family size. He's blessed our family over and over. Thank you Jesus, thank you.

I am so glad that you have had a great pregnancy! I feel blessed as well, as I know that a lot of people have a lot worse and are sick or on bed rest through the entire pregnancy. All though not fun at times, it has been good! God is good!
