Taking Stock

GirlsI’m stealing this from my cousin who stole it from a blog who stole it from another blog. After something’s been stolen at least three times it’s fair game, right?

Making: progress on settling into our apartment. (Yeah…it’s taking me awhile.)
Eating: belated ice cream cake for my patient hubby.
Drinking: freshly-squeezed orange juice made from organic California oranges!
Reading: Stepping Heavenward, The Maze Runner, The Unfinished Church, and about four other books.
Wanting: this amazing stage of pregnancy to take its time.
Looking: for a changing table on Craigslist.
Playing: Dots. It’s a game that I tell myself keeps my “baby brain” sharp.
Wasting: the homemade gluten free mac n cheese I didn’t quite finish eating in time to save.
Wishing: I could share the gospel with our baby and have him understand and embrace it right now.
Enjoying: a quieter week with no vacant apartments to rent!
Waiting: to hit the road for a weekend in San Jose with the fam!
Cherishing: last memories with a dear seminary friend who will be moving away in two weeks.
Liking: our air conditioning.
Wondering: what baby Caleb will look like.
Loving: The Valley of Vision and Isaiah in the mornings.
Missing: everyone we love back home.
Hoping: the baby comes a week ahead of schedule.
Marveling: at the tiny hands and feet that are poking and kicking me throughout the day.
Needing: a long-overdue pedicure.
Smelling: nothing in particular, which is just fine with me.
Wearing: an elastic-wasted skirt and one of just a few shirts that still fits right.
Following: the Seattle Mariners and their sudden burst of momentum.
Noticing: how much I have to do before we leave on that little road trip tomorrow…
Knowing: that I am pardoned and loved by an amazing Savior.
Thinking: about which corner of the living room will become baby’s nursery.
Feeling: hot and sleepy.
Craving: more orange juice. One can never have enough.

    You can share the gospel with Caleb, just read your devotions out loud. (and keep doing it once he is out too) Wish granted! ;-)
