The Big Day!

Good Morning Peanut,

Tomorrow is the big day you become more alive and real in our hearts. Oh, you are very alive to this mama who feels like she has a jumping bean in her tummy......but to know if your sister will have a baby brother or baby sister is so exiting to me I could hardly sleep last night in anticipation!

I feel so blessed that you are apart of this family; that God has entrusted us with another one of His own. He knows your name Sweet Blessing. He knew your steps before time began and He has picked this time as your entrance into the world to display His wonder and glory. We are thinking your grand birthday will be December 3rd, just one week after your Big Sister's birthday.

Yes, tomorrow is the day the fun begins. We will start praying about what your name will be and this mama will start going crazy preparing your room and all the fun that comes with welcoming you into our home.

Until then, know that you are constantly on my mind and in my prayers (1 Samuel 1:27) that you are healthy and strong and perfect in every way. What ever "perfect" God has planned, I trust that it is a "good gift from above"  (James 1:17)

Love, Your Mom

My Morning Challenge

I have been memorizing the Proverbs 31 woman verse on the right side of my blog. I have it printed out on a cute stand next to my sink so for the past 9 months or so, I read it while I am getting ready for the day-or ready for bed. I've been thinking about the part she "rises before everyone else to take care of needs..."

It seems I have been bombarded lately with the importance of getting myself not only physically, but spiritually ready every morning. I have this written in my journal. It is an excerpt from one of Beth Moore's bible studies

Psalm 90:14 " Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days"
In my morning time with God I ask Him to satisfy all my longings and fill all my hollow places with His lavish, unfailing love. This frees me from craving the approval of others and requiring them to "fill my cup". Then, if someone takes the time to demonstrate his or her love to me, that is the OVERFLOW and I am free to appreciate it but do not emotionally require it because He alone has satisfied my every need.

So here goes my challenge: to rise before my family to meet with my Creator and King!

Sunday Night Family Time!

We had a blast tonight "decorating" (as Kaitlyn called it) a pizza! I bought a pre-made Bomboli pizza crust and Chris put it on the grill for about 10 minutes before Kaitlyn got to decorate! 

She could hardly wait for the crust to come off the grill!!
But after we did it was topping time!!
And then daddy added a couple of his toppings to his side-jalapenos (or pickles as KK called them).
And then back on the grill!

And then finally! Chow time!!

Here's to Sunday nights with My Precious Family!!!

This past week our girls bible study lesson was on Joy! A couple of girlfriends and I are doing a fruit of the spirit study by Beth Moore called Living Beyond. It has been wonderful!!!!

We learned what true joy from God is. Beth described the joyful feeling we get as "your heart swelling and throbbing with pleasure!"

I had a swelling and throbbing of my heart this week with my sweet KK.

We are working on potty training and I, (yes me) came out of the restroom after going potty and KK said with all the excitement her little body could muster "mommy, I so proud of you!"

Talk about make a mama's heart melt!! Oh Kailtyn Nicole you bring such joy to my life!

6 Years As His Wife!

 Today marks 6 years that Chris and I were married. I first laid eyes on my sweetheart when I was 11 years old. I thought he was dreamy and my "untouchable". Oh he made me chase him for awhile, but finally I caught him!! We laughed yesterday as we tried to count up if we have been married as long as we dated. We weren't sure if we were to start counting with when I thought we were dating....or when Chris "considered" us dating. Ha! I was so in love with this man, that there was no other guy for me. Even all through junior high and high school I had my eyes on the prize and no one else would do. 
Here is to 6 years with my love!

The Bledsoe Girls

Last weekend our cousins Joel and Ann-Marie came to visit from OK and KK had a blast having so many girls over!!!!
See why Chris thinks we need a boy in the Bledsoe family!! We had never heard such giggling and squealing from Kaitlyn; she had the time of her life!
