Good reminder

As I was reading this morning, I came across this wonderful verse that is a good reminder (subject!) for us (me):

"For who maketh thee to differ from another?

and what hast thou that thou didst not receive?

now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory,

as if thou hadst not received it?"

~1 Corinthians 4:7

It's so esasy for our nature to be prideful, and God hates pride. Sometimes I wish I were a writer. I feel like I've got so much to say, but I can never get the point across on "paper." I am no better than ANYbody!! But, do I live my life accordingly? All that I have really has been GIVEN to me. No race is better or worse than mine. I thank the Lord that he has made me who I am. I want to live my life without pride, prejudices and the likes. For His honor and glory.

Almost 8 weeks pregnant. YAY. I praise the Lord for the time he's given me with this tiny one. A few more days, and we'll have a little pinto bean. :) NAUSEA is hitting me pretty hard this time around. Wow. I did get some crackers and they seem to help. Just thinking of that sweet syrupy stuff that's supposed to help with nausea makes me sick. gak.

Our Mikayla is doing quite well. I'm just in awe of motherhood. I LOVE WHEN MIKAYLA GIVES ME HUGS. Did I get my point across? :) She never had been too affectionate, but now she is starting to be more so. WHEE!! ( I think it just might to have to do with that fact that she knows I like it so much and will give her almost anything afterwards:) But, hey, I'll take it!

I'm thinking about getting some white shelves from IKEA to go in Mikayla's and the new baby's room. Yes, we have a two bedroom house, so they'll be (LORD WILLING) sharing a room. I think it will save a lot of space and we wouldn't have to add another dresser. Our plan is to take the big bed, the book shelves and computer out, and put in a twin size bed. And the shelves, but I haven't asked Jody about that yet. I'm sure he'll like the idea. And since we have a certain family member I love so much who lives so close to IKEA, I'm sure it'll work out.

I'm off to have lunch with my parents. Chinese food. I'm not sure if that sounds good nor not, but we'll see:)

sarahbear... what a nice little post. i'm so sorry and happy at the same time about the nasea. i sure will stroke your hair while you heave if you like and a nice, cool rag to banish any heat crazies. can't wait to see you in the morning. and i was thinking that if you were coming to ikea, you may need to special order them while you're actually there and wait for a week or so for them to come in. now if you're looking for a place to stay during that week...well, let's just say mikayla has a "portable" crib in abby's room that would work wonders for her. love you girl. answer your phone, crazy lady.

Sorry to hear about the nausea, but remember it's a GOOD sign that everything is working the way it's supposed to! Small comfort in the midst of it though, I know! I remember how bad mine was this time around! GAG! I'm so glad to have my little guy here now and be past the "wonderful" side effects of pregnancy! :)

Sarah, I hope you feel beeter. And your right that is a good verse well I translated it into where I could understand it better but those are the times we get to big of a head and saying that we can do it and we like sometimes leave God out of it who helped got us to work on whatever we were doing and I don't about you but that drives me nuts. And Sarah just write from the heart and what comes to your mind and what the Lord has planned for you to write or whatever. Well talk to you later. (:)
