Who watched the "Biggest Loser" finale last night and what did you think? I don't want to give it away in case you haven't watched your DVR yet but we'll just say I was very happy! I love the finale - I love seeing how dramatically people have changed. I might have shed a few tears! I was also so excited to find out a new season starts in January - my DVR is going to blow up!!!
I was also fixated on the fact that Allison Sweeny and I are due at the same time and how her stomach was half the size that mine is. ha!
This is my blogger friend, Sarah. I found her blog at the exact time I needed to. We were both going through fertility treatments and she was so funny about the whole thing. She gave me a lot of laughs when I could have been crying instead. She made me look at some of the things we were going through in a whole new way. I got in some giggles in the doctors office. And then we both got pregnant - with girls! And she had her baby girl, Blake, last night! I'm so excited for her!
In fact - being 9 months pregnant at this time of year has really made me think a lot about Mary. She was this pregnant with Jesus and was about 20 years younger than I am now. I can't imagine how scared she must have been. I think about if right this minute I had to get on a donkey and ride for several days and then end up having Harper in a barn in the hay. No epidural, no precious outfit to put her in, no monogrammed blankets, no grandparents to ooh and aah over her, no camera to take her picture..........................I can't imagine. She had no idea that that sweet baby would grow up and die on a cross to take away the sins of the world. She probably just hoped he would be a carpenter and learn from Joseph and not be a tax collector. I think all pregnant women have dreams for what their children will be.............once again God did more than she could ask or imagine with her son.
More than WE could ask or imagine.
I'm so thankful He was born so that I might live!
Oh and P.S. are ya'll looking at all the homes on the tour of homes? I'm on #260 out of 820. I'm thinking by Easter I MIGHT be done! :-)
Ya'll - I am about to explode with excitement!!!!! I felt very strongly that I really needed to pray for everyone waiting this morning and do you know that since 8:00 this morning -I've received THREE e-mails of praises for girls on the blog who are now pregnant. I'm checking with each one to see if it's okay to move them to a praise (some still need to tell families first). If you don't think God answers prayers - try NINE pregnant girls in less than 6 weeks!!! KEEP PRAYING!
MAKE THAT FOUR GIRLS TODAY!!!!!!!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!
