Every time I get a positive on a pregnancy test it is one of the happiest moments of my life! I can’t contain my excitement every time I see that little “plus” sign!!! I am literally busting at the seams with joy. I understand everyone has different feelings when they find out they are pregnant, but for me, it is a very happy thing.
Edited to add: This post goes over what happened during my pregnancy, I will write in another post about my feelings.
I became pregnant with my first child a few weeks shy of my 21st birthday. When I took the test it was such a surreal feeling because I had never been pregnant before. I was so excited for this new journey for us! I’m sure some can relate to this, but it still wasn’t “real” until I had my first sonogram and saw the little “gummy bear” on the screen. I can’t say it enough how excited we were to be pregnant, I think it is such a wonderful thing, such a blessing!! Read more
I have slacked terribly with keeping my self up to date on writing posts. I have plenty written in my notebook, but the problem is deciding to do it instead of something else.
How often do we use that as an excuse for not getting things done? Others might say “I don’t have the time to do (fill in the blank). I find, for me personally, when this happens it is not because I don’t have the time to do something, but because I did not use my time wisely. I set things to the side OFTEN saying I will get to them at a later time; and that time normally ends up to be months or, (sadly) years later. Read more
“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” Romans 7:18-25
God has given us a great hope! Someone who can save us from this sinful flesh we abide in. He gave himself!! The creator died for the creation. Read more
Someone gave me a really good suggestion, and I loved it!! They suggested that my “About Me” page was a tad too long, and that I should break it up into different posts to give more chance for conversation with others who may have gone through the same situations as I. So here is to introducing my About Me Series!
My first post will be about me having pregnancy complications and losing my son.
My second post will go over my second pregnancy and the joys and anxiety that I went through.
My third post will go over my third pregnancy.
And if I have any other thoughts to add I will be sure to add the links here!! I am so excited for this and hope that I will be able to encourage those who may be dealing with the same things.
Peace in Jesus’ Name!!
I talked a little about why I am forgiven in my About this Blog page, but I felt like I should expound on in some more.
Jesus died on the cross for me
I am not forgiven because of anything special that I have done, but because of how great God is!! Read more
Our focus verse today is Psalms 68:6.
“God sets the solitary in families…”
Whether you are literally an orphan, or you feel like no one is there for you, God has placed you into a family. Here on earth, and in Heaven.
Look around you, your friends are your family, those who are always there for you are your family. Family doesn’t have to be blood. Read more
I have seen it many times: people come into hard times (spiritual, emotional, physical), and they let their situation become who they are. Don’t let the rut that you are in define who you are. Don’t become so stuck in your situation that you stay their forever. Read more
