rooted here

we took a much-needed trip to a beautiful place today with some of our dearest friends and oh my goodness it finally has snowed in california! so we are so very excited.. all the while some of you i’m sure are v e r y done with seeing snow out your window everyday! the beloved Hume Lake is very close to our hearts and it was so good to spend a day… away. and so near to the Lord’s amazing creation. He is so amazing and so talented and wouldn’t you know it? He has made all of this so we can stand in awe of Him and remember that the Lord has us in the palm of my hand. such a wake up call… recently it’s been an uphill trek to try and stay focused on His plan for my life. but seeing the way that these mountains are formed and the way that our friends love on us and this little babe doing his little dance in my tummy… we might not always have beautiful days, but this is a beautiful, beautiful life. and i am so incredibly thankful for where i am rooted. here in these mountains, i know i am rooted in love. and what more could we possibly ask for?

by the way. 27 weeks. hello third trimester! bring it on! i’m starting to get serious with my walking schedule and getting ready to be strong through labor and delivery! by the way . . . that glucose test you have to take? phew, that one is a doozy! i chugged that nasty drink that tasted like straight sugar concentrate, was on a sugar high for maybe m a y b e five minutes, then absolutely crashed and was a wreck the entire day, so glad we can check that off the list! the results come back next monday, pray for a pass so i don’t have to take the three-hour test! i can’t even imagine what that would be like. getting very very excited for baby beck to be here. hope your week is happy happy happy. xoxo.
