Friday Fun!

Prayer Request

My girlfriend, Kristin, had a miscarriage last night. They had an ultrasound (sonogram?) on Monday and Thursday and the baby was great. The ultrasound on Monday hurt, but they heard and saw the heartbeat.

When they went to the ER last night the doctor said he thought she may have miscarried because of the ultrasound tech on Monday. Right now she's sore and heartbroken. She was ten weeks along.

Please keep them in your prayers!

The future is blank without a view.
That which I wanted most, You have denied;
I cannot understand (and I have tried);
there's nothing I can do but wait on You.

Earth offered much, and I had, lingered long
outside her lighted windows, wistful grown-
till at my side I heard a voice-Your own.
Lord, how could I resist a love so stong?

Take all away. I am content to know
such love is mine-for life is all too brief
to grieve for pleasures brining only grief;
give me but You; it is enough just so.

Enough-and more! Such love in You keeps growing-
in You I find my deepest joy complete,
all longing satisfied, and pain made sweet;
in You my cup is filled to overflowing.

-Ruth Graham, Sitting by my Laughing Fire

Miss Mischeif

Not only does she eat anything she can reach, but she finds ways of trying to disappear...

It's perfect!

This morning I went to throw some trash away and look what I found by the dumpsters!:

Every once in a while people leave things there when they move or get new things. It is exactly what I've been looking for! It matches my dresser and bed perfectly (can't tell by the lighting...). It's got the same wood, same nobs, looks just as used...

Praise God! I've been wanting to find something to help us store things and didn't want to spend the money. What a good God we serve! I feel like I just won the lottery!

Eating Habits

Since starting solids, Karrots' been having problems pooping every once in a while. Her main diet is breast milk, sweet potatoes, and applesauce or bananas mixed with berries. Every once in a while we'll let her try something from the table that we think she can handle and very rarely she's had avocado and YoBaby yogurt. Then, of course, there's the habit she has of picking up anything she can grab off the floor or that's simply in arms reach and putting it in her mouth. I've caught her with leaves, my sandals, trash, and computer parts (too big to eat!). Her favorite food is paper. She'll try to eat my shopping list at the grocery store, the random notes we have around the desk, and any piece of mail or other loose paper she can find.

All this, and she has moments when she screams while making the face above (her poopy face). It's like she's in labor. She looks weary and has periods of rest. I read of up it and have rubbed her tummy and moved her legs. My girlfriend also suggested prunes, which I bought yesterday and have yet to try.

I would go back to breastfeeding, but she loves to eat food and it wouldn't stop her from trying to eat whatever she finds. I'm also enjoying not having the loose stool, even though it doesn't smell as sweet at breastmilk poop.

Anyone else have this much drama when introducing solids?

I don't know how many of you have been watching or have heard about the healing revival going on Florida (it's on GodTV for the next week from 4pm to 8pm)...lame people are walking, deaf people are hearing, blind people are seeing, and people are being raised from the dead! Praise God!

It was talked about at church on Sunday. What a great time of prayer we had after such encouragement of God moving! Gina - I believe it's finally time!
