Lots of Thoughts

Happy Monday...a little late. ; )

The days have flown by for me since we found out last Wednesday Colson wasn't ready. Would ironing a bedskirt be a little much? Ha! In my defense, Jason and I picked out new bedding for our anniversary, and the skirt was SO wrinkled. It was an easy fix.
I love the brown, white, and cream. Makes me so happy when I walk into our bedroom. ; )
Look who is so ready to meet his little brother!?

I had a doctor's appointment this morning, and all is set for...

tomorrow!!

I could bawl my eyes out, but I'm too busy getting Zach settled for the big day and organizing everything. I'll just keep it in until tomorrow. I'm sure the tears will come gushing.

Do you realize the significance of this day? Reese will have been in Heaven eleven months, and Colson will be coming into our lives. Only GOD could work out something like this. Thank you for your faithfulness and excitement for our family.

I'm off to try to get some sleep. Sure. ; )

I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 16:8

Katie, Jason, and Zach,

I'm so excited for you! It is truly awesome to see you be able to experience this sunshine after the rain. Thank-you Jesus for your faithfulness to your children!

Your bedroom looks amazing as well! I love the bedspread you picked out. If you ever think of it when you're blogging (and I know it will be awhile with all going on!) - I would love to know where you got it. We have been looking forever for the perfect bedspread and I would love to check that one out in person.

I'll be praying tomorrow!

Jen

And after you suffer for a short time, God, who gives all grace, will make everything right. He will make you strong and support you and keep you from falling. He called you to share in his glory in Christ, a glory that will continue forever. 1 Peter 5:10 (New Century Version)
