Ephesians 3:20

Let me begin by saying that we are all (including Huey) healthy. However, we found out this morning that my husband's company cut his position along with several others. While, I don't understand where this road is leading us, I know that God is good, He does have a plan, and He will provide. I read this scripture on another blog this morning before I found out about his job and I am clinging to it!

"God is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine." ~Ephesians 3:20

Please pray for peace for Scotlon and I while we wait for Him to reveal what our future holds.

After many technical problems, I finally got the latest ultrasound picture up! It's so hard to believe that I'm getting close to the halfway point. I feel like I just found out I was pregnant yesterday and yet here we are. Just a couple days ago, I felt my peanut move for the first time! It was the weirdest and coolest thing in the whole world. I am so in awe of this miracle growing inside me. I haven't really "felt" pregnant so far but something moving inside me makes it very real! I can hardly wait until our next appointment when I can see the baby again. Hopefully we'll be able to find out if we'll be painting pink or blue then as well! I promise to let you know as soon as we know for sure!

Thank you, Lord!

God is so good. No matter what the circumstances are, that fact never changes. I am forever in awe of the ways He chooses to reveal Himself in simple moments. A call from a friend when I need encouragement. Money that appears out of nowhere when I need a little extra. The perfect scripture on the first page I open my Bible to. Sudden peace that passes understanding when I have every earthly reason to be terrified. He is there providing for every need, even when I don't know exactly what I need.

Today, I just want to say thank you Lord! Thank you for all of the blessings in my life, for carrying my burdens when they're too heavy to bear, and for simply being who You say You are. Thank you.

New Year

I had plans for a great New Years post about fireworks and laughter but it all seems very frivolous right now. A friend of mine spent her New Years burying her brand new nephew. Please say a prayer now and in the coming days for this sweet family. She posted this on her page a few days ago:

"Britton Beck Pilgrim was born yesterday. He was a beautiful chubby perfect blonde haired baby boy. Another child his Daddy can't deny. He was 8 lbs 11oz and 21 inches long. He is in Heaven now and though we don't understand, we know God's will is perfect and planned and I know one day I will know the answers to my dreaded questions.

Tiffany and Drew are doing okay. I know we have a long road to travel the next coming days but as a good friend reminds me, there is only one sets of footprints in the sand right now...they are certainly not mine, not Drew's and not my sweet sister's...they are His and we will trust that He will continue to carry us all through this. Please continue to pray for Drew, Tiffany and Claxton. Please also remember both sets of families. We are all struggling to find sense of this and the right words for them."

Lord, I don't understand it and I don't like it, but I know You are in control. Please hold us while we rage, comfort us as we weep, and walk with us as we search desperately for the answers.
