28 Weeks! Summer is here!

My pretty toes...done by my amazingly wonderful husband! Last night Erik gave me a spa treatment pedicure (with the help of some of amazing Mary Kay products!). He spoils me!

Now that summer is here I finally feel like time is flying by. The girls will be here before I know it. Next week I start going to the doctor's office twice a week...oh joy. We have another ultrasound next week and I'm excited to see how much the girls have grown. They are moving and grooving inside my belly and I can tell they are getting big!

The word TRUST has been on my mind.
Definition: belief in the honesty of another, put in care of, believe, hope

In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me?
Psalm 56:4
In the footnotes of my bible this verse is described as a confession of trust in the face of fear.
That is precisely my issue...FEAR. Fear can be disabling.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
My bible describes this verse as trusting God with whole hearted devotion. I can say I trust God, but my heart remains fearful. I need to fully trust and not half-way. God wants it all and he is worthy of all of me.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me."
John 14:1
This is my prayer when fear creeps in. I cannot allow my heart to be troubled/worried/fearful, I need to TRUST. Why can't I get this through my thick skull? It's like a broken record sometimes...I know God knows my heart and His grace abounds when my sin abounds.

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.
Isaiah 26:4

He is alive! He is active! Faith in a living, active God moves mountains.
(Beth Moore)

Bed Rest Book Club
I have finished all 4 books of the Above the Line Series by Karen Kingsbury. They were all excellent. Now I am reading some of her non-series books. Yesterday I finished Shades of Blue and today I started reading This Side of Heaven. I may end up reading all of Karen Kingsbury's books before the babies arrive.
The bible study I'm working on right now is Beth Moore's study of David. I've never studied David before and I'm really enjoying it. It's all about "seeking a heart like David's". Who wouldn't want that?

Thanks for reading this latest entry. Love you all!


  1. Do you feel like it's for naught when no one comments? I thought I should jump in here and let you know how much I appreciate getting to keep tabs on you all. I still have my Ivy leaf from her service on the visor in my car to remind me to pray for you guys. Thanks for sharing all that you do. I know it touches a lot of lives.
