I feel like there is a lot of waiting these days. Waiting for Kate's twins to come (stay in there as long as you can and keep growing boys!). Waiting for Maggie to be completely potty trained. Waiting for Jack to get home after a long day. Waiting for baby Katie to come. Waiting to walk down some paths of healing. Waiting for packages to come in the mail. Waiting for money to grow on a tree:) Waiting for relationships. Waiting for growth. All of the waiting makes me anxious and want to control things...thus my "tower of Babel".
Psalm 130
"Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD...with you there is forgiveness...I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his work I put my hope...with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption..." 
 So for now, I turning my worries into praise and supplications into thanksgiving...
- praise God for this beautiful face, Mags, I am able to stay at home with every day!
- trust Him to preserve our marriage even when there is so much going on and we don't make time for each other. Also, thank God for such a patient husband and father:)
- as I lay awake and feel my rib cage might explode from all her kicking, I think of baby Katie and say a prayer for her precious life...Thank you LORD!
- blessed to be in a church growing so fast, and knowing God has a great plan for North Macon!
- the LORD is the Lord of the Covenant. God of Israel. Their path was not easy and 40 years in the dessert was long, but He provided them with mana, DAILY. He was faithful to Abraham and gave him a son. This is the God I know. This is the LORD I trust. The Father who forgives and pours mercy upon me. Thank you, LORD!

The Moore's

Bradley and Lea were in town this weekend. They brought the boys by and we enjoyed a little time catching up with them (there never seems to be enough time to catch up with them!!!).
 Obviously Maggie loved both William and Bennett:)
 Meeting Waffles
 I can't believe this fall they will be three!

Here are some pictures from Jack's phone...
Maggie loves the toy store where she can shop. Her cart is full of ice cream.
 Jack found Mags like this the other day. He said it made him think of me - feet up and chick-fil-a cup. She was just sitting in her playroom like this, by herself.
 Every Saturday morning Jack takes Mags to breakfast at J. Christopher's. Apparently she loves to stack the jelly. 
 We went to the Tanger Outlet Stores. Found this old school carousel. Mags loved it.

Weekend Party

This weekend we had a baby shower for our friends Caleb and Sallie Tingle. We braved the heat and spent all day Saturday outside setting up for the fun night.
 Apparently people kept feeding Maggie cupcakes. We aren't sure how many she had the night, but she seems to be ok:)

We are so thankful for our back yard right in the middle of town!
 Mags and CiCi (caroline). She loves her so much and loves wearing all of her hand-me-downs!
 One of the tables
 Some of the other tables.
 Maggie and Waffles' relationship...her telling him something and him not obeying:)
 Sallie and Caleb before opening gifts.
 Mags and CiCi
 CiCi, Mags, Anderson and Isaiah (friends from church)
 Clean up day on Sunday! Mags and I sat outside while Jack did most of the work...thanks to Jack for all he is doing while I go through this pregnancy!
 Trying to take some pics of Mags with sunflower...this was the best shot:)
