Today is Thankful Thursday and there are so many things I'm thankful for, but I'll just give you a few of the highlights:
1. Remember my exciting retreat plans? Well, today is the day! Just a few more hours and I will be here, enjoying a 3-day sweet fellowship with the Lord and my sisters in Christ! I'm bringing a camera so I can fill you in on all the details when I return. Thanks to everyone that sent me their prayer requests...look for God to do it!
2. I am also thankful that today is my first pre-natal appointment! I know...12 weeks is a little late to be going for a first appointment; nevertheless, after watching this and experiencing that, I was completely transformed and decided I wanted to give birth naturally, with a midwife. Therefore, I had to spend some extra time finding a new hospital close to home where midwives actually deliver the baby. I'm on my way this morning and I can't wait to hear the baby's heartbeat and meet the midwife!
3. I am thankful for my gracious husband who has taken today and tommorow off to stay home and "hold down the fort" and care for "the troops" while I'm away being spirtually rejuvinated. God bless his ministry:)
