Tough Night

So last night (okay, early this morning ... 2 am) I got up to use the bathroom, very typical. What happens usually I will lie back down and Jeremy will move around and I quickly fall back asleep ... this time I was wide awake waiting for him to move. I laid in bed for a while, moving my belly trying to get the Little Guy to move - nothing. So I got up, got some orange juice and went to the other room and prayed .... about 15 min later Jeremy was moving around again. I ended up staying awake until about 4am, just feeling him move around and talking with God.

During my time with God, I let it Him  know I am not as strong as I am pretending to be. That as we get closer to the due date, and knowing that most T13 guys do not make it full term I am starting to get scared.

So what did I do, I turned to my note cards - one that I read early this week.

Be self controlled and alert. 
Your enemy, the devil prowls around like a roaring lion and looking for someone to devour. 
Resist him, standing firm in the Faith ... 1 Peter 5:8-9

What a sense of peace that filled my heart - I told Satan to get behind me, and he had no business trying to play with my mind. I am a child of God and so is Jeremy - he loves me and protects me. If God is for me, who dare be against me. I WILL STAND FIRM!

I was able to sleep for the last hour, before my 5 am wake up call.

Jeremy has been active ALL day - PRAISE BE TO GOD!

I haven't commented in a while because I don't know what I can say. Keep the Faith and stay strong. Love and dimes.
