So today I was sitting here watching Joey move in my belly...that's right, I can not only feel her, but i can see her move too...It's kind of freaky because my tummy just starts morphing into these weird shapes then POW, she kicks and it goes back to normal...that's not the point. The point is that in about 3 months, this little angel has to come out!! Is the kicking practice for that?? Is she chlosterphobic like her mommy?? Is she bored in there?? I do not know what's going through that precious mind of hers right now, but here's what's going through mine. Will it hurt when she comes out? Will we get to the hospital too late to do the epidural? Will I deliver early or on time? Will my belly button ever go back to being an "innie"? And so on and so on. I know that I have nothing to worry about and modern medicine is amazing, but that's just what I'm thinking about these days! I'm sure everything will be fine :) Off to bed, check ya'll later!

So today I tried out for our worship ministry at church. I haven't sang in years, and I'm not going to lie, it was nerve racking. The song I chose to sing was about a girl who seeks significance from people. It talks about this girl who's hiding behind the makeup and constantly trying to make the mirror and everyone else happy. In the end the song takes a turn, and the girl realizes that the minute she trusts in the Lord her worth is in God. He makes her beautiful, not the make-up, not what everyone else thinks Johnny and I talk about how beautiful Joey is and will be. I am confident in this because God is making her that way inside and out right now as I am sitting here, as the day goes on, as I'm at work, as Johnny's at work, as our families go on with their lives....she is beautiful because she is a child of God, just like you and me! I pray and hope that you will all help us teach her that regardless of her outward beauty, it's what's on the inside that counts! Wow, parenting is already hard, and she's not even here yet! If you have never heard this song, take the time to listen to it! Here is Bethany Dillon's myspace page, the song as of today is the 2nd one on her list, just click and play! http://www.myspace.com/bethanydillonmusic
