quick update...

Our doctors appointment this morning went GREAT!
Rowan's heartrate was 151.
Dr. Harper told me I was boring, because I had no questions,
concerns, or issues.
I say Praise the Lord for that.
I am so overwhelmed when I think about being a momma!
Only ~15 weeks to go!

We had a lady look at our house yesterday afternoon! YEAH!
She loved it, and we should know something from her in 2 weeks...
as she has some decisions to make.
We have some MORE people coming to look on Sunday afternoon.
We have been trying to lower our price all week...but roadblocks have
been going up everywhere. I guess God thinks the price is fine where it is!
Today our realtor told us to hang tight where we are with our price.
Tears fill my eyes every time I think about these people coming to look...
Oh, me of little faith...
I just told Lauren the other day that I have decided to take my hands
out of it...and just allow God to be God with our house.
I have gotten to the point where I know I can't "help" Him.
He doesn't want or need my help, just my dependence on Him.

I just picked up the book "Miserly Moms" from the Christian bookstore.
I am planning to read it with an open mind this weekend.
We still don't know what we are gonna do with Rowan.
Will I continue working or will I stay at home?
Praying for wisdom and guidance in this area too.

I had brunch with some of my favorite girls this morning.
It was a "LaWillNuBill" reunion and the additions
that have joined our families in the past three years.
2 baby girls 2 baby boys...and soon another baby boy!
LaWillNuBill is a combination of our last names (prior to getting married).
We had a great time!
So thankful to have these girls in my life.

Our crib was sitting on the front porch when I got home!!!
We ordered it Monday and it came Friday!
I can't wait to have it set up soon!

As I was driving this morning I was wondering what
the sky looked like on this day many years ago when
Jesus died on the Cross for us.
What it must have felt like to be Jesus' momma?
And how I couldn't imagine giving my child up for anyone or anything.

I'm grateful for the Cross, for salvation, for God's perfect
and complete grace.

Happy Easter and have a great weekend!

I am praying that your house sells soon, that Rowan will have his own room and that you will have strength not to take back what you've given to God. I know it is hard, I often take back what I placed in His hands. Love you!
