Joy


Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the JOY set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: "My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son." Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. "Make level paths for your feet," so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Hebrews 12:1-14

11 months!



This little man has turned 11 months(well a week ago-seriously time is flying!!!). I've been filling out his baby book filled out and trying to catch up- esp since I'll have another to do.

The reminiscing has been good... fun reading through his calendar of firsts and little notes I've taken along the way- hoping some day he'll appreciate it and find it fun to read. I wanted to keep a more detailed journal, but in the end, having a calendar and just writing stuff down has worked out best.


Do you have a baby book somewhere? Have you been able to read it?
{ps. the sock was to protect his little hand that he burned- however I am thrilled to report that the sock is no longer needed and it's healing up really well}

Something fun...


Edie at "Life in Grace" is hosting the 12 Days of {Handmade} Christmas once again. Last year there were several fun ideas for homemade Christmas gifts. So if you're interested, check out her blog.

And we know.... one thing.


We know that we are staying in North Dakota... D got a call Monday informing us that he just didn't quite fit what they are looking for. And I sigh, a sigh of relief. It's really nice to know. I feel like I've been on hold for quite some time now, not letting my mind go one way or the other. And we are just fine with the decision. There would have been a LOT of things needed to be accomplished and sorted out if we moved. So a sigh of peace and a feeling of settled.
In other news, I have my first prenatal visit this week. Eager to get in an ask all kinds of questions, now that I know what to ask. :) And we will be finding out just who is coming when we can. That won't happen for another month or so. In the meantime, I'm hoping that with the second trimester, I will be feeling better all around. I can't believe that that is only a few weeks away. Elijah is keeping me distracted and entertained. :) Well I'm off to take a nap or do something with my free time... happy Tuesday.
