Sunny Sunday afternoon

Today is a beautiful day! I actually got up early and went to the 9:15 service at church, and sat through the whole thing. After church I sat in the courtyard and started reading a highly recommended book called "Irresistible Revolution." I then went to a luncheon/meet and greet for people who live in Hays County to meet each other and talk about ways to get involved in the community. Now, I don't live in Hays County, but I live very close, only about 2-3 miles away. Plus, I have 2 friends that do live in Hays County and they couldn't make it so I went on their behalf.
I am home for a while, and then off to Austin New Church at 5pm. God is doing great things in that Church and the people in Far South Austin better get ready! Last Sunday there were 11 people that accepted Christ. I can't wait to see what happens tonight!!

5 of my blogging friends are pregant. Most of them are due in the spring, but all but one of them have had their previous babies go to Jesus too soon. Most of them lost their babies in the past year, and they have older children who are now asking if this new baby will be able to stay with them on Earth or go to Jesus too soon. Please be in prayer for these woman and their families and their unborn babies. You can read their stories on their sites:
Tobie - has 2 1/2 yr old twins ( 1 baby in Heaven) and a 1 year old, due in the Spring
Nancy- has a 2 1/2 yr old (born at 28 weeks), due at the end of 2008
Susie - has a 2 year old, and a baby in Heaven, due in the Spring
Emily - has 2 young girls, a baby in Heaven, due in the Spring
Kenzie - has a 2 yr old, a baby in Heaven, and Faith Claire is due in 2-3 months

Emily and I have been e-mailing back and forth recently and she wrote an amazing piece for Lifeway during the summer that is a MUST read, especially for moms: Devine Appt.

I took my feeding pump and stuff to church this morning to take a feed. Not knowing what was being served for lunch I wasn't even going to try to eat. I actually met a woman whose son also has a feeding tube, so we got to talk about tubes, pumps, Dr.'s, etc.
Today starts day 1, again of less food and more feeds.
I had to put a pain patch on Thursday afternoon, but took it off Friday night because the side effects were too much for me.
I baby-sat Friday night for a friend, and after the twins had gone to bed I watched a movie called: The Ultimate Gift . It is a great movie, and I highly recommend it.
Yesterday, my mom and I went to IKEA ( my favorite store) to get the finishing pieces for my bathroom. I got all matching decor from Target, and the shelves from IKEA. It's still too bright for me, but that's ok, it looks pretty. The paint chip said Fall Gold, not Surface of the Sun!
Tomorrow the guy from ABC is coming to set a live trap for Mr. Racoon that lives in my chimney. Hope he gets caught quick and can be moved to a new home.

This week looks to be stressful and busy, as I try to "fix" a problem from last week, have 2 therapy sessions ( first time in 4 months, other than my "crisis" from last week, a lunch date with a friend, and have one maybe two community groups to attend.

Oh, and being a "lab rat" is going well. I am actually sleeping at night now without the use of sleeping pills. Friday night I slept for 10 hours!!! Yeah for sleeping!!!
