High and Low

Filled With Praise


My high for this week would have to be having my mom and dad come in town. It had been a couple of months since the kids had seen them, so they were of course spoiled rotten(as was I!) 


As I mentioned in a previous post, my low was dealing with my crazy pregnancy hormones. Tuesday was an especially hard day, one where I was feeling like,"I can't wait two more months for this child to arrive I'm so uncomfortable!"

Thankfully the Lord provided me with some good rest that night, and then my family came in town so I was able to stop feeling so weary. :)


There are so many lessons I could share, but I think the most important lesson I learned was that I need to rely on the Lord to be my strength. When I feel the urge to snap at the children or my husband, I need to turn it over to God and ask for His help in getting me through a problem-no matter how small or overwhelming it seems. 

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him." Psalm 28:7


  1. Great lesson. I will keep you in prayer during your last two months. You will have the strength you need to see the pregnancy through until the moment the Lord calls your baby into the world!

  2. I know exactly what you mean about the pregnancy. I was always one that was "ready" at six months :) I am glad God renewed you with rest and a visit from family.

  3. I can totally relate to those pregnancy feelings. I have totally been there. Sometimes it is so hard to control those "feelings". Glad the Lord gave you a renewed strength.

  4. Teach you the ways of the force, will I. Learn to be Jedi Master, will you. Love your Father's teachings will you!

    Hey Jess, we had a blast this weekend, and we love you...know these next few months will be busy but will go by quickly!

    Love, Mom & Dad

  5. I am blessed by this Psalm 28:7 that you shared I'm so glad we got to come and visit you! When I was expecting you my key verse was Jeremiah 33:3. You know, its called God s phone number! Love, Mom
