It was a good weekend, and now we're back to the swing of things.
Opening the coffeehouse @ 6 in the morning will really wear a woman out!! (Especially when the coffeemaker is totally SHOT) I mean, it is a coffee house; people do expect us to have coffee.
*Well, sorry folks, not this morning!* Hopefully someone will be in to fix it before noon.
We went to Pigeon Forge this weekend- the first Saturday I've had off in a while. It was amazing to be able to sleep in, have no where to be, and be WARM. I praise God for that, how He just gives us time to rest. I am so cold natured it's almost ridiculous... I'm never warm. Not at work, not at home, expecially not at church (it's cold there in the summer! lol). So this weekend (we weren't paying the bill) so I cranked the heat UP! It was so relaxing... And I read this weekend in Experiencing God about keeping your mind "stayed on Him" (from Isaiah 26:3). He really spoke to me about how I've been leaving Him out of some things throughout my day... but yet, we're supposed have lives centered on Him totally, He's supposed to consume our thoughts, and it should be so easy because of what He's done for us. Yet, He hasn't consumed mine. My thoughts should always turn to Him- especially with what's going on right now. Oh, the promise He gave us in that verse... He will keep in perfect peace... I'm so thankful for the promises we can cling to. I need His perfect peace... oh, that I'll learn how to keep my mind stayed on Him :)
We pray for our baby's salvation each night. What a gift the Lord has given to us. Dustin says he didnt know it was possible to love someone you've never met; I just can't get over the miracle that's created... and our Father has already numbered his (or her) days! Psalm 139 brings tears to my eyes.
Yesterday I was with Betty Amanns in the afternoon (we go out witnessing each week) and she was talking about the promise that's in the end of Acts 2. She said it's a promise you can pray, and claim it for your family... Where Peter is saying repent and be baptized "For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Himself." (2:39) She said you can claim that for your household. Dustin disagrees, well, isn't sure if that's that right context. What do you think?
Okay: insurance prayer request
I called Friday, our insurance isn't activated until March 1st, but I figured I'd go ahead and make an appt with a Doctor because usually first-time patients take a few weeks to get in. The lady we talked with said she needed our "insurance card #, group #..." and several other numbers. I explained to her we didn't have that until the 1st, but I thought I'd get an appt right now. She told me dustin could go to HR and get the information (all this is at Parkwest). Dustin got all the info she needed except the card number, b/c we don't have that and they don't have that info right now either. But they said they could type up an official Parkwest letter that explains he is who he says he is, we will be insured March 1st, etc. The lady (who really was rude, btw) said she could not take that, she "had" to have this number, even just to schedule an appointment. I've never even heard of anything like that before. And, if we're being real here, you know the doctor wouldn't be so particular, all I need is a date on a calander! So Dustin is going back there today... instead of calling he's actually going to the office. It wouldn't be so bad, but if I wait until March 1st, it'll take a few weeks to get it... I'll be about 2-3 months pregnant by that point! :(
On a lighter note...
We bought something for the baby this weekend :) The first thing. Since we don't know the sex, and it'll be newborn around halloween, we found this little costume on clearance. It's just like those really soft footie pajamas, but orange, and has a little pumpkin face. It was crazy, we bought something for our child. But it's really sweet.
There's my update for now... I'm trying to do good :)
To my beautiful daughters on your 13th birthday
