So close...

We are so close to the end of the first trimester! Will this sickness go away? Who knows?! But it's been a great (comparably) week, and we just get more excited each day! Having an awesome family and super supportive friends has been the greatest blessing so far. Abby has come to our house and made us dinner twice already! She is so selfless and has such a servant's heart. CJ brought us dinner one night, and I've gotten cards and bags of things from people at church with sweet encouragement and snacks that might be helpful! And of course, Mom and Dad are always doing anything they can to make my life easier.
I am astounded at what the body of Christ looks like in action. I am amazed at the constant support from people at church and their interest and investment in our lives. We've only been there for five months! God is so gracious to us.
On another note, we finally were able to go on a date last night! We went to see Fireproof and then hung out at Barnes and Noble for a bit. Our culture is so inundated with trash and movies that are less than glorifying to God, but this was such a dear story. It's been a long time since I went to see a movie that I hoped wouldn't end! I think we all need reminders of how tough marriage can be, but that with God as the center, we can endure the difficult times. Even after just 4 1/2 years of marriage, we've certainly learned that about a million times! It's also so cool to see that Christians can really produce something quality on a "low" budget. God will definitely use anything that is created to glorify Him! If you haven't seen it yet, go!! I would buy your tickets...


  1. I haven't seen Fireproof yet...but I want to! Did you go to the B&N in short pump? That's what I was picturing, since it's near the movies. I hope you weren't innundated with teenagers being loud in their cell phones, because that's what happened last time I went to the movies there. Though probably many teenagers weren't at fireproof! It's crazy that you guys have been married almost as long as we have! So you're on the same baby-time-track, which is fun. Just getting started a few years younger than we were... :) I hope your morning sickness ends for your sake!! I was only nauseous if I was hungry and couldn't get food fast enough. Maybe that's why I gained like 60+ pounds. lol.

  2. congratulations on your pregnancy!! love mrs. St.clair(Kirsten's Mom)
