Thankful Thursday

*This little guy is a healthy 5lbs 10 oz now. 

*I will be 36 weeks pregnant on Saturday and will be allowed some light activity then. After 8 weeks of bed rest, just getting my haircut will seem like a wonderful adventure.

*My wonderful mother came over yesterday and helped me sort through baby clothes. Its so nice to have a drawer full of clean newborn size clothes ready for the baby.

*I've been reading Jesus+Nothing=Everything by Tullian Tchividjian this week. I've been so blessed by his insight into the necessity of understanding the implications of the gospel in our day-to-day lives.

*I've gotten many hugs and kisses from Bear Cub this week. Each one brightens my day.

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
