Time Flies

I realized today that it has been one year since I moved to Charleston. It went by so fast. My life has changed in huge ways since moving here.

I fell in love......got engaged....got married and now I am going to be a mama!

It has really been an amazing year. Probably the best year of my life so far. I love my life here. I love my new family and this beautiful city.

Pregnancy so far has been good. I am extremely tired, a little sick, but I know many mothers who have had it much worse....so I will not complain.

If the wives tale is true, that have heart burn means that your baby will be harry, then this child is fit for a zoo, because I have the worst heartburn.

Psalm 33

Psalm 33:7-10

He gathers the waters of the sea into jars ;

he puts the deep into storehouses.

8 Let all the earth fear the LORD;

let all the people of the world revere him.

9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.

10 The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

I read Psalm 33 today. The beauty of His creation never seizes to amaze me. I am not sure how anyone to could see a beautiful sunset and not be blown away by His majesty and power. To me though, as I read today it is the realization that He made it all for me that takes my breath away. All for the enjoyment of His beloved (me). Not only that! Also that He, in all of of power, infinite splendor and glory, is not consumed with the wonders of His creation of this earth and world, He is consumed with love and awe over me.

The last part of Psalm 33 is beautiful.

Psalm 33:11-22

11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

13 The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men.

14 From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth;

15 He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.

16 No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.

17 A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy,

19 To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.

21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name.

22 Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.

Just a little rhyme......

First comes love....

Then comes marriage....

Then comes Joanne with a baby carriage!

That's right, a baby carriage! We are having a baby. It was totally unexpected, not planned, but the greatest gift to date.

We are so happy and thrilled. We cant wait to meet this little one. I am due at the end of February, so I am 5 weeks along.
