P. S. To Thankful Thursday & Pictures

Our Father in Heaven has definitely been with us through the whirlwind events of this afternoon. Kristyn, my bonus daughter, is great with child. She's due November 1. This afternoon she began having contractions. She has a 13 month old already, so she knew what they were and headed to the doctor's office. They decided Liam was not quite ready to make his appearance yet, even though he thought he was, hah hah. They admitted her and gave her medicines to stop the contractions and diagnosed her with a urinary tract infection and dehydration and said those were why she was having contractions to begin with. I have prayed about this all afternoon, for the doctor's wisdom and the baby's health, and so far, so good.

We are trusting God in this and knowing that in His perfect timing, things will happen as they should. I admit we were more than a little anxious there for a while, but when we found out she had only dilated 1 cm. and stopped we were somewhat relieved! Poor Steve called and said, "Have you prayed?" I said, "Yes, now, let me go so I can pray again!" We spent some time with her at the hospital and she was eating well, which we were glad to see. She's doing great and will probably go home Friday morning if the contractions remain stopped and she hasn't dilated anymore. Please remember her in your prayers if you think of it. She is a precious precious girl. I love her so much and want the best for her, of course. Her husband is just as sweet as the day is long. We love him dearly and are grateful to have him as a son-in-law. He's a great husband to Kristyn and a wonderful father to Nolan, and will be to Liam as well.

Here are some pictures to put names with faces...

Kristyn & Corey

Me...let's think of that awful shine on my face as radiant glow instead of the glistening from the heat, hah hah!

Good night, ya'll! It's off to read, have some time in prayer and then bedtime around here! Sleep well, bloggy friends. I will be praising the Lord for you and praying for your needs and desires to be met through Christ our Lord. Keep Kristyn & Liam in your prayers if you will.

Blessings & Prayers,
