Baby Shower

We had our first baby shower for little Lincoln. We are still debating on the name either Chadley Lincoln or Lincoln Cade. ( For those of you who think we are weirdos Chadley is Chad's real name.) The shower was so precious. Karla, Vianey, Alyson, and Irma did such a great job. The theme was so cute. Obviously, it was all football theme in an effort to honor the Linc's daddy. Vianey's sister made me a little homecoming mum to wear. It was so cute. Karla even made a cute scoreboard that went along with the theme as well. We got some great gifts and were so blessed by everyone's kindness!

This is me with my neice, Juliet, at the baby shower. She has the most beautiful hair and is such a joy to be around.

Fun goodies that Karla and Vianey made.

The sweetest hostesses who were so generous to throw such a great shower for us.

Trust in the Lord

A part of me sometimes feels like I can't enjoy this pregnancy too much because there is always a chance that something will go wrong. I have been suprised by my lack of trust in the Lord in this area. I feel like I worry constantly and wonder if I will be the one who this that or the other will happen to. This morning I read a blog on http.blog.mom4life.com about how she lost her little baby Sawyer at 37 weeks. I accidentally ran into the blog as I was looking at a babybook she was recommending. It broke my heart to read her story. It is a mother's worst nightmare come true. However, as I read thru her posts it was amazing to see how the Lord carried her thru it all. She did a great job documenting her grief and expressing how the Lord is faithful in any and all circumstances. I forget that so often. I know He loves me deeply, but I always wonder what He is going to allow to happen in my life to sift me. I spend way too much time thinking... will this be what He allows??
