Pink or Blue?

Well...Caleb is going to have a little BROTHER!

We are not one bit surprised. He will be the 4th grandSON and the 7th great grandSON on Wes' side! I told you that Churches only make boys!

We are thrilled! I love that Caleb will have a brother close in age. I pray that they will be best friends.

Everything looks great. Heart, kidneys, spine, measurements, all 10 fingers and all 10 toes, etc! Praise the Lord!

i'll take a break

i guess i will take a break from reading everyone else's blog and actually write on my own. do you ever look at your last post thinking you wrote it a few days ago yet the date reveals its been a good two weeks?? whoops!

this week has been busy. i have some serious respect for all those single moms out there (wes is in europe) women are amazing. for real.

"single mom" + teething, irratable toddler+ pregnancy + just getting home from a week of travel = me... pooped

what gets me through- the Lord, counting down to seeing Wes, waiting for Monday at 2pm to find out what gender baby #2 is, caleb's laugh, my wonderful, helpful sister and of course brand new jewelry!!!

Can you hold me now?

So yes, I am a Kirk Franklin fan and I just discovered this old song of his. I have listened to it every day since I first heard it.

I wanted to share it because I think many people are going through tough times right now and I hope it ministers to you like it does me... If you can download it and hear the song, it is beautiful (I did add it to my blog playlist).

Kirk Franklin - Hold me now

The spring of April's gone
The leaves have all turned brown
The children are all grown up
And there's no one around
I'm looking over my life
And all the mistakes I made
And I'm afraid
Somebody told me that you would wash all my sins
And cleanse me for the scars that are so deep within
So I'm calling to you
If you can hear me I don't know how
I was wondering can you hold me now?

You are the only one
That's patient when I fall
Your angel's come to save me
Everytime I call
You don't laugh at me
When I make mistakes and cry
You're not like man
You understand me
See people change
One day they don't like you
The next they do
I wish that everyone
Could love me just like you
So here I am
This sinful man
Peace won't allow
I was wondering can you hold me now

To every broken person
That may hear this song
To every boy or girl
That feels his smile is gone
I know exactly how it feels
To lay in the bed at night
And cry, And cry

Don't you worry
God is patient and he cares
About the tears you drop
And the pain you feel he's there
When you are weak
That's when he's strong
Even though you don't know how

God can, and he will hold you now
God can, and he will hold you now
Don't you worry, he can hold you now

Vacation Week 2

Our second week of vacation was spent at Cherry Grove (N. Myrtle Beach). This was with Wes' family. 35+ people in an 8 bedroom house! It was craziness, but belive it or not, still relaxing. Caleb loves the beach! He loves to dig in the sand, eat the sand and splash in the ocean!
While we were gone, we also celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. We went to a really neat restaurant in Little River, SC called The Parson's Table. It was a very special and fun outing just the two of us!
