He is My Help

I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. 
He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber...Psalm 121:1-3

266 baskets of laundry, washed and folded by mom

267 a tidy kitchen this morning (mom again)

268 hitting the point in pregnancy at which I'm picking up things off the floor with my right foot and toes, since I cannot bend and because my left knee just doesn't work these days

269 that I did not go into labor over the weekend, in spite of praying hard that I would, so the baby would come while my dad was here - obviously, God has better plans!

270 special encouragements sent by the Lord from friends

271 laundry put away

272 my bed made up

273 that God is my Help - talking with Him frequently these days about labor and delivery!

274 little things getting done before baby comes...thank you notes from the girls for their birthday gifts

275 organic raspberries and strawberries on the cheap from Costco recently!

276 BB working from home 3 days a week

277 Mrs. M keeping the girls while I ran back-to-school errands and took a nap!

278 long mornings of discipline with CA - not fun, but right...praying for fruitfulness from it, a little heart that grows into wanting to obey Jesus (and mommy and daddy!)

279 overhearing CA talking to herself: "You monkeys, you! You give me back my caps! Tsz! Tsz! Tsz!" (from the children's book, Caps for Sale)

280 CA sporting her new pink cowboy boots - hilarious, cute...thanks, MaMa!

281 my three cups of raspberry leaf tea each day...they don't taste good, but it's one of those "getting ready for baby" routines I'm doing, and I am glad to have a reason to drink them!


  1. it's exciting to hear you waiting and wondering each time I click on your blog is baby is here yet :) Blessings to you. . .

  2. Oh the verse, I needed to read that tonight. Thank you.
