John and I had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving holiday. We were dreading the holiday without family and it turned out that John’s brother, Dave, was able to make the trip from NC to spend Thanksgiving with us (John will make a post of their adventures together). It was so great to have at least one family member to spend the holiday with. We went to our small church leaders (Steve and Patty Brown) house for our Thanksgiving feast. Oh it was so good!
I had my annual (and probably last for a long time), Black Friday shopping spree. I was able to find some awesome deals and save lots of $$$.
Now Thanksgiving is over, there is no more turkey and stuffing, the leftover pies are growing mold, family is gone, and Thanksgiving 2008 is just a memory. What do we have to hang on to? We have you. The readers of this blog, the people that pray for us, the faithful who support us. For you, we are truly thankful. We are also Thankful for the increase in support we are now at 49.1%. PRAISE THE LORD!
I had a goal of reaching 50% by October-November. We are so close! I don’t usually use this blog as a platform for support raising, but I’ll make an exception now :-). If you are interested in helping us reach a HUGE milestone of 50%, all we need is one partner to support us at $50 a month. If you feel God has called you to partner with us, all you need to do is click on the link on the right column of this blog that says “How do I Become a Ministry Partner?”
The baby is doing very well, she is in the 33 percentile of growth, so she is a little small but the doctor says everything is fine, I’m healthy and she is healthy. Because I’m anemic they gave me another ultrasound to measure the baby and the technician was so wonderful and let us see her in 4-D again. Below are pictures of our beautiful baby girl. We could not get the whole face because the little stinker would not move her hand. LOL. Would you just look at those cheeks? We can’t wait to meet her. Only five more weeks.
Christmas is around the corner and it’s so easy with everything that is going on with the economy and such to get stressed out. DON’T. Christmas is a time to celebrate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It’s a time to be with family and loved ones. Enjoy the holidays. Give LOTS of hugs and kisses and praise the Lord because he has blessed us all with so much.
