Peanut...

Dear Peanut,

You are not even born, yet I love you with my whole being. Daddy and I had a sneak peek into your beginnings of life. We even got to see your little heart beating at 111 beats per minute. The nurse told us that you are 2mm and that means we don't get to hold you until January 2, 2014. We are excited to see your development over the next several months. It can't come soon enough.

You are loved, Peanut. More than you'll ever know.

Love,
Mommy

First First

After finding out we were expecting, people started asking me if I was experiencing morning sickness yet. I didn't until this morning. And it hit me like a Mack truck. Certainly not the greatest experience, but I know in the end it will be worth it all. And my husband made sure he was there to support me through it. I know we'll have many more firsts with this lil peanut growing in me. Still looking forward to this journey.

Update

Cameron and I have made it to our 8 month anniversary. :) I can't believe that much time has already passed. We have been busy.

As our life continues to move in this forward fashion, we found out April 22 that we are expecting a baby Seay near Christmas. That will be such an extra special delivery!

Great Little Tool

I've been making buckeyes at Christmastime for a few years now. One of the things that frustrates me most is keeping the chocolate melted without burning it. Then I read about using a crock pot.  My mother-in-law has the cutest one! Crock Pot's Little Dipper. Neatest little tool out there just right for the job! I think a fondue pot would work just as well.

Have you ever stopped to consider how God has brought all things together in your life. I mean, there are so many intricate details that we cannot possibly orchestrate on our own.

God brings us to where He wants us, then we choose whether or not to follow His leading.

I cannot fathom that a year ago I was single with no prospects on the horizon and then fast forward to today, I've been married for 3 1/2 months. I was pretty much ready to be an old school marm for the rest of my life.  Little did I know that when I met Cameron via eHarmony in March, we'd be married by August.

Life is good. I could not have dreamed of a more accepting  family to marry into. They were so loving from the start. I really enjoyed helping his mom prepare the Thanksgiving meal this year. We are fortunate that we live so close to visit so often. His dad even asked me to make buckeyes and Oreo balls for their company Christmas parties (which I've already made).

(Is your mouth watering yet?)

I am thankful each day for what God has done in my life. Thanksgiving goes beyond one day a year in November. I am to give thanks in all things.

Yay!

In case you haven't heard, I'm getting married! 
In 11 days.

Life

Life has many ups and downs. Sometimes the hardest thing is to make sense of it all. The trials and triumphs are brought into life to make me a better person in Christ as long as I am looking to Him in it all. I so often leave Him out of the picture and try to do things in my own power.

Change is inevitable. Some current changes coming up are exciting yet a little scary. I will probably be posting more about that in the near future. Be on the lookout!

Unplugged

First, let me say that I love my church. I am thankful the Lord brought me out this way in 2006. Being where God wants you is better than being where you think you want to be.

The three churches I have attended have all had some great ministries to get involved in. There were fellowship opportunities for many of the age groups: Nursery, toddlers, primary, juniors, Jr. high, high school, college and career, young marrieds, older marrieds, even the older folks in general. But what about the single professionals? We're too old for the college and career class, but don't fit in with the marrieds.

From my perch in the choir loft, I notice people. Those people that are my age are generally married or engaged. They have concerns and priorities that are different than mine.

It seems there are all sorts of fellowship opportunities for the teens. They need that. But don't we all? The moms and dads can get together with other families and  have play dates. I am grateful for the families that have included me in some of their events, but I know I've still felt a bit left out.

I think churches need to do something more for their single professionals. We need fellowship too! Many of us work more than one job and see no one but our coworkers. I wish we had something like the BYF the teens have. I'd love to get together with others from other churches. How else will I meet different people of like station?

I think young ladies have a more difficult time than the young men do. Not sure why, though. Maybe because I see it happening. Most of the people I did see outside of church were those who had families of their own to take care of. I certainly appreciate being included, but sometimes it's tough to feel plugged-in with families that aren't mine.

Anyway, that's all I've got to say at the moment.
