Blogging 101

Yes it's my 101st post, and I still don't have it all figured out. I'd love to learn how to do a linky, (a picture off the internet) among other things, but all this requires time and a few leftover brain cells, and until my basement is completed, I think my cells are lost in the sheetrock dust.

My memory card for my camera is lost among all of this lovely chaos as well, and until it appears or I drag my cheap soul to the store to replace it, no pix for you!

I totally broke my "comment record" this week. Thanks for all your sweet congrats for this baby! It's so fun to hear from all of you, even it is twice! As for me commenting, I can't remember my password right now so that's why I've been "quiet." I hope it will come to me in a calm moment or NOT. Calm doesn't happen alot around here.

I read this yesterday, and it really struck a chord within me. I hope it causes you to think and reflect as well.

A Real Mathmatician

Lamentations 3:22 says,

Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul. "Therefore I hope in Him!"

The last few months I have thought alot about faith and our "lil' Faith." I miss him. I kiss my sweet baby occasionally in his resting place on a shelf in our bedroom, and I've wondered what I would look like, (Quite round I'm sure... ) what he would look like now, and what the next few months would've held. I cry occasionaly and wonder if this is something only time heals. Life goes on and sometimes I've felt guilty thinking it's been a day, and I haven't thought about Faith. I know the Lord doesn't want me to funcion that way.

I prayed 3 months ago, that June 8th would bring me great joy. God is gracious and has brought me my joy sooner.

The day we found out we were losing our sweet baby, (November 4th) is a day shy of the expected arrival of our newest blessing who is due November 3rd.

I did some calculating, and my 20 week ultrasound will be the week of June 8th. God's timing here is amazing, and His "math" is no coincidence I'm sure. I couldn't have planned it if I wanted to!

Today, I'm sure I serve a mighty God and a pretty amazing Mathmatician.
