Mommy's Day Out

This morning I had an appointment with the cardiologist.  What I was thinking when I said yes to an 8:00 AM appointment, I do not know!  Thankfully we made it on time.....well sort of....more like 15 minutes late, but thankfully did not have to wait too long to see the doctor.  I went in, they checked my weight 127lbs (thank goodness, 3 weeks of sitting on the couch and I'm still on track).  Next was my blood pressure, 100/50.  Thank God!  That's the highest it has been in weeks.  They did an EKG, which was normal and then sent me to the hospital for an echo cardiogram.  They also gave me a monitor to wear for the next 30 days.  Whenever I have a symptom, I have to press a button and then call in to send in my results.
The echo cardiogram was so neat.  They hooked me up and we were able to watch my heart on the screen.  It was amazing.  Joseph and I both thought about how perfectly God designed us.  All of our organs and their functions as well as every single hair on our head were perfectly designed by our Creator.  I just had to stop and Praise God!  Can I get an AMEN??!!
Think about our bodies for a second.  Think about all of the birthmarks, stretch marks (if you are blessed with them like me ha! Joseph calls them my battle scars from having our babies), every hair, every nail, every tooth, every wrinkle, every little detail....God knows them all.  Of course He does because HE created us!  Oh can you feel the chills! Makes me want to get up and do a Hallelujah dance and shout Praise God!  That's my God! He knows me completely and He knew me before I was in my mother's womb.  There is nothing that I can keep from Him, all my thoughts and desires...He knows them all!

"O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.  
You Know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thought from afar.  
You discern my going out and my laying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  
Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord...
...For you created my inmost being; you knit me, together in my mother's womb.  
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, I know that full well..."
Psalm 139:1-4; 13-14


  1. I came across your blog and I just want to tell you how much I smiled reading your posts. From everything you are going through, the hardships and fear you have from being on bedrest, and you still give so much glory and honor and praise to our loving, glorious God. Thank you for that. I know it's hard not to get down (I was placed on bedrest at 27 weeks with my second child) but I am hoping that knowing YOUR attitude and heart for our Lord made someone else smile. Hang in there!

  2. I am so encouraged by your words! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my blog! I pray daily that God will allow my blog to be a blessing and encourage others!
