Growing young men...

So last Friday the fact that my oldest is now graduated from our home school and is almost ready for college really hit! The reason, I took him out to the college he will be going to in the fall to register for classes. He also got his school ID and his college post office box number.

This is a big walking on faith issue for me in so many ways. Books, laundry money, and so much other things. It will also mean him leaving home and following God with even less guidance from me.

Yet, I know his foundation is strong. His life is being built on the rock of Christ.

Ack I have an adult child.....

Ok, so not quite yet. This weekend though we will celebrate my oldests birthday and his graduation from our home school. At the end of the month he will be 18. It is such an odd thought, especially since I am thinking of holding my newborn around the same time.

I am so thankful having watched him grow into the young man I prayed he would be. He is a young man who seeks God and loves serving him. He has served in our church as an Awana leader, sunday school teacher, prayer team, cleaning, fixing and pretty much whatever else he could do or was asked to do. He helps different people from in their homes, last Sunday gave up time with friends to help push someone's van that  had broken down. 

Yes, he has his faults like we all do. But I love to see him striving to become the man God is calling him to be.

just 4 more weeks

I can't believe that we are at the end of this pregnancy. It has been a roller coaster of emotion. I don't see the roller coaster ending soon. I am looking forward to holding this little one in my arms. Today as I sat waiting in the waiting room for the doctor the baby had the hiccups and was moving like crazy. When I went into the appointment they had a hard time finding the heartbeat. It didn't concern me because I knew how much the little one had just been moving.

My biggest issue is that I really don't like the names that I have picked out. Well I guess I do like them I just can't imagine calling a child by either name though. I guess we will see when the baby comes out.
