A Special Announcement!


You may have noticed that I have been taking a few blogging breaks. I have been dealing with a lot of things as my life just got a whole lot busier and ......I guess the word would be crazy?! On January 16th, my Mom's 60th birthday (I can't believe she is 60, don't tell her I said anything!) we found out we are expecting Baby #3! :o)


I can't believe that I am going to be the mother of 3 little ones all under 4 years of age. I must be crazy! No, we were not planning on trying to conceive for a while. We were not even sure if we were having another one. I especially did not hope to have another baby this close in age to Lily, but, I guess we don't always get to choose, do we? And, this baby is a blessing just as Claire & Lily are.

We are most concerned with my health (I have pancreas and liver problems) and finances. However, we have to trust that the Lord will provide. He gave us this blessing, He knows what He is doing.

I am 9 weeks pregnant and due around the first week of September. I would appreciate all of your prayers as the morning(all day) sickness is pretty bad right now and I am praying that it does not get as bad as it did with Claire & Lily.


Love to all and I hope to post more soon when I am feeling less queasy! :o)

Oh, wow! I am excited at your news but also I understand your concerns. Just remember that He never gives you anything that you can not handle, that He will not supply you with the GRACE to endure and even embrace it! Think on Jesus when he prayed to His father "My father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will." Matthew 26:39
Not as I will, but as you will.

I will keep you in my prayers about the morning/all day sickness. May the Lord be near you as you journey through some difficult but blessed days!!

JOYfully in Him,
Kelli
