A new hope

I won a contest a few weeks back (on another blog).  I won a 'sign' with any wording I wanted from a place called Everyday Lettering.  There were so many gorgeous items and letters.  I chose a simple board style for my prize, and the word HOPE.  This is our word for the upcoming year.

Here is a picture of my sweet board:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“From the fullness of grace we have received one blessing after another” -  John 1:16

And, now (drum roll please) what we hope for....  A safe, uncomplicated, ordinary, pregnancy.  Yes, that's right, I am pregnant with baby #3.  We are HOPING and praying with all we have that this sweet little one will join us here in July/August and get to stay for a VERY LONG TIME!!  Praise God for He is the healer of broken things, and restorer of lost time!

We prayed for this child and the Lord has granted us what we asked of Him. – I Samuel 1:27

Here is a picture of my sweet love:

 **this picture is from about 5 weeks, and I am 8 weeks today!!  Oh the Lord has been so good to us!!  THREE children!!! Even though Rowan & Levi do not journey here with us...THREE!!!  Oh we are most blessed indeed!!

I am seeing the MFM on Monday the 27th.  Please join with us in praying that (1) we get approved for medicaid ASAP and (2) cervical lengths are good & I can have the surgery I need very soon!!!
