Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

The Hubs and I have been on vacation and we had no internet  connection, therefore blogging was impossible.  Once we came home I began feeling extremely sick.  I haven't felt well this whole week, but decided it was time to fight through the nausea and post.
Hoover Dam! This is the only picture taken of us together that was clear.   

This is one time in my life where I will say the nausea, dizziness, fatigue, etc. are things I am thankful for.  The sound of food makes me gag, but I am trying my hardest to eat.  I usually LOVE to eat, therefore not desiring food is new for me.  All the sickness is worth it, because we saw a precious little heart beat on Monday!

In one week our baby grew so much!  I hope I will always remember this experience.  The woman doing the ultrasound would giggle each time she saw something!  It made me laugh to see her so excited!  At the exact time she said, "I see a heartbeat" the song "To God Alone" by Aaron Shust was playing.  To God alone be the glory!  He can move mountains and He does every day!

"It does not belong to us, Lord. The glory belongs to You because of Your love and loyalty. Why do the nations ask, "Where is their God?" Our God is in heaven. He does what he pleases.  Their idols are made of silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see.  They have ears, but they cannot hear. They have noses, but they cannot smell. They have hands, but they cannot feel. They have feet, but they cannot walk. No sounds come from their throats.  People who make idols will be like them, and so will those who trust them.  Family of Israel, trust the Lord; he is your helper and your protection." Psalm 115:1-9
