I am LOVING this Book!!! One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp is a must read...only on Chapter 5 but every word she writes is beautiful and runs straight to the heart! I am LOVING her style of writing...and I have a feeling all of you would too...it is very BLOGish...if that makes sense. The way she writes is in the moment! I have LOVED so many of her words and I want to share some with you!
"That that which tears open our souls, those holes that splatter our sight, may actually become the thin, open places to see through the mess of this place to the heart-aching beauty beyond. To Him. To the God whom we endlessly crave."
"Eucharist is the state of the perfect man. Eucharist is the life of paradise. Eucharist is the only full and real response of man to God's creation, redemption, and gift of heaven." ~Alexander Schmemann
"Joy is the realist reality, the fullest life and joy is always given, never grasped. God gives gifts and I give thanks and I unwrap the gift given, joy."
"The Brave who focus on all good things and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the World!"
"When we lay the soil of our hard lives open to the rain of grace and let joy penetrate our cracked and dry places, let joy soak into our broken skin and deep crevices, life grows!"
I had a wonderful visit with my midwife yesterday. I had my glucose test and passed! Yay...I celebrated before finding out last night with a turtle cheesecake...it was divine! The tummy is measuring perfectly for the week I am in. Baby #3's heart rate was in the high 140s and is positioned exactly as I thought; head is beginning to move down, but baby is still sideways. I am LOVING how wonderfully this pregnancy is going! We are to the point that we see the midwife every 2 weeks! I LOVE this point! But I think what I loved the most about my visit was them informing me that I have only gained 16 pounds in their records...music to my ears!
~Memorial Day Weekend~
We have a fun-filled weekend ahead. Zach has off this weekend and this makes me so very happy. To start the weekend, we get to go see Baby #3 in a 3D/4D scan! I am SO excited!!!! Zach swears he is going to be able to tell if Baby #3 is a boy or girl from seeing it's face...I find this hard to believe...but I am oh so excited to see it's face and it's perfect hands, perfect little lips and all it's movements! Such a blessing! And we get a DVD...so if you see me this this weekend...you better believe you will be watching this :) After this we get to spend the afternoon with some friends from Church and then off to The Koerner's for a cookout and more fun!
