Miss Hailey Grace...

Well I made it to 32 weeks which I was told by Doctors that I most likely wouldn't do seeing as Madison was born at 32 weeks. Well I had a Doctor appointment today and they measured my belly and said everything was growing right and yada yada... and we heard Miss Hailey's heartbeat and it sounded great. The Dr then decided that she wanted to do some cultures to see if my body was preparing itself for labor, in which case we wont know the results until my next Dr. visit next Tuesday. Which is another thing, they want to see me every week now to keep an eye on things going on. She did an internal check and found that I am 1 centimeter dialated but said that wasn't that big of a deal since this is my 4th child. They do however want to do a sonogram of my cervix tomorrow to see if it has shortened. She said if it has then they will want to start giving me steroid shots for Miss Hailey's lungs. So keeps us in your prayers please. I know not matter when she comes, that God will take care of her.

(I found it easier to blog about this than to tell each individual person)

Florida Residence...

Well we are finally here. It felt like it took forever to drive down, I am not one to drive long distances. I don't mind riding them at all just hate driving. But we finally got here Wednesday night around 6pm. We have pretty much everything unpacked and in it's place. The rest is in storage until we find a house to buy. The house we are in now is fully furnished and beautiful... It doesn't really feel like we live here yet. It feels like just another vacation, I am sure the reality will settle in soon though.

The town we are staying in is called Wimauma (Why-Momma is how it's pronounced) It's a very small town with retired people and it's infested with mexicans. SERIOUSLY! Also mexicans obviously have some sort of thing with Roosters because they are everywhere. Josh left the other morning to head to storage and said he had to stop so a rooster and it's baby's could cross the street and he said he thought to himself "Where the freak am I?" LOL! But it's very nice here minus the 5 AM rooster crows (I guess you would call them).

Please keep my husband and us in your prayers as this is a transition for our family. We are so excited to see what God has in store for us and the great things he is going to be doing in the University church. We love and miss all of you back home!

PS... Like my new background? I ~L O V E~ it!!

Thanks for the Prayers...

Thank you all for your prayers for our family during this time in our lives of Josh losing his job and us losing our home... We have prayed and prayed for God to open the doors for us to stay in the Ministry because it's where our hearts are and where we feel called to be.

Well we have had one pastor call us and want to meet with us. So when we went to Florida we met with the Pastor and his wife. We were still unsure of if this was the job we should take or not. But the more we prayed and the more we thought about it we realized that God had opened a door for us to stay in ministry and this was it. There were no other doors open. So we have decided to step through the door and take this position.

We are really excited because we know God has great things in store for us and our family. Of course, it will be very hard to leave our family and friends here in Maryland especially seeing as Josh has spent 27 years in Maryland and I have spend 11. So please keep praying for us as you all have been. As of now it looks like we will be moving the week before or the week after Easter.

My Husband Rocks...

My Husband Rocks....

Because he knows me so well... He knows exactly how to make me smile when I am having a cruddy day or a very stressful day. Just like today... in which case he had a lot of stuff to do today and so I stayed home and packed the house like crazy. He felt so bad that I had done it all by myself. So we went to the Bowling Alley where he bowls on a league every Friday night and they said, "Will Carrie Bowyer please come to the front desk?" So I went up there and they had an edible arrangment of Chocolate covered strawberries for me from my wonderful husband!

I LOVE YOU BABY!! Thank You!

My Husband Rocks Friday...

My Husband Rocks Because....

He is so giving. He is always thinking of ways to help others and sometimes I think if I didn't make him think about stuff before he did it he would probably give away everything we had. LOL! But he really is a great man and he has such a big heart for helping people.

Last night we had our big family outting to Wal-Mart and it was freezing cold so on our way out he saw a little old woman fighting with in the cold and with the wind to get her groceries in her car. So he said lets hurry and I'll help you get the kids and the groceries in the car so that I can go help that little old woman. So he rushed and threw all of our stuff in and helped us get situated and went back to help the woman and she had already finished putting her stuff away. So he came back and got in the truck looking so disappointed that he wasn't able to help her out. See what a good man he is!!
