Black Friday

I did not go shopping today - I am pleased that my family never took on that tradition.
Instead ... today I began to pack up my jewelry studio, hung shelves and started the process to create Jeremy's room. The process begins with moving my jewelry studio to the office, which also needs organization. But it has begin, that is a great start.
On Aaron's mind is packing the hospital bag - We will have that ready by Sunday. With the mind set that it can be changed or added too ... I need to get some baby detergent to wash the blankets and clothes we have for Jeremy at the hospital.

Aaron and I have our 35 week appointment Monday December 1st, along with a regular ultra sound, I wonder if JP is 5 lbs yet? Also, our special Nurse will take us through the Maternity area and turn in our "registration" for the hospital. It seems like this is all starting to move very quick. After the appointment, we are going to look at some cars, yes the "Yellow Jeep" is looking for a new home (anyone interested? I have put every mile on the vehicle myself ... 105,000!) We are going to look at some Chevy's, Malibu to be exact .... better gas and family friendly.

My sub will be coming in over the next two weeks to prepare to take over second semester. It will be nice to meet this person (there are 3 candidates so I am not sure if it will be a man or woman) Regardless, I will have the opportunity to give them a quick lesson on teaching Jewelry, AKA Metal Fabrication.

Everyday, we are getting closer to meeting Jeremy, and that is exciting! There are still so many things to do ... I am sure we will never be completely ready, but I can trust that all things that must be done God will direct us to complete those things.

From Joel Today :)
Life in the Word
Today's Scripture
“For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God” (1 Peter 1:23, NLT).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In Genesis we read that God spoke the world into existence. His words produced life and are continuing to produce life today. Aren’t you grateful for the power in God’s Word? Because of God’s Word, we can have life in eternity and live in strength and victory over every obstacle that comes against us here on earth! Today, you have access to life, strength, and victory in the Word of God. The Bible says in Job 22 that what you declare shall be established. When you declare God’s Word, you establish it in your life. You activate its power. Make it a habit to declare God’s Word over your life daily. Declare that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Declare that you are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus. Declare that His favor and blessing are upon you because you follow His commands. As you declare His Word, you will see His hand moving on your behalf. You’ll experience His power to live in victory in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word which is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I commit to seek You first and invite You to establish Your Word in my heart. I bless You and magnify You today. In Jesus’ Name.

how exciting...I remember the preparing and Christmas was the best time to be going through that "waiting" process. Advent is the season of waiting - for Jesus. Keep the faith! Love and dimes! BTW - Tide Free is a great alternative to Dreft.

Just a few more weeks to go, Beth! You and Aaron are further along than me and Bob...we still haven't packed that hospital bag yet! However, the suitcases are empty and ready to be filled. I am praying for you, sister. I am confident of this: God has an amazing plan for Jeremy's life and will use it to bring many to His Kingdom. It's all in God's Hands...the best hands in the entire universe.

Hugs...Mai Xia
