I Miss my Grandpa!

I have been struggling today missing my grandpa a whole lot. I really want to be able to tell him about the new baby coming and know that I can't. He would have been so excited for us. He loved meeting Cortlyn and getting to hold him and play with him. Now I know my Grandpa is in heaven with Jesus and he feels no sorrow or pain but down here I miss him and wish I could give him one more hug and smell his scent of old spice. I dreamed about him last night and this hymn came to my mind in my dream and I was singing it in church and my grandpa was there. The last stanza is what my grandpa is experiencing now. Its called All that Thrills my Soul is Jesus and its one of my old time favorites. Here are the lyrics

Who can cheer the heart like Jesus,By His presence all divine?True and tender, pure and precious,O how blest to call Him mine!

Refrain:All that thrills my soul is Jesus;He is more than life to me;And the fairest of ten thousand In my blessed Lord I see.

Love of Christ so freely given,Grace of God beyond degree,Mercy higher than the heaven,Deeper than the deepest sea!What a wonderful redemption!Never can a mortal know

How my sin, tho' red like crimson,Can be whiter than the snow.Ev'ry need His hand supplying,Ev'ry good in Him I see;On His strength divine relying,He is all in all to me.

By the crystal flowing riverWith the ransomed I will sing,And forever and foreverPraise and glorify the King.

I miss you Grandpa!

Help my Pants are getting Tight!!!

Yes it is happening I went to put on my pants today and they felt a bit snug. I am only 11 weeks so it seems so early. But my mom said she popped out with my sister much sooner then with me and by the third she pretty much wore her maternity clothes from the start. Man when I was pregnant with Cortlyn it was my first so I was so excited to get into maternity clothes but this time around I am like NO! After Cortlyn's birth I lost a whole lot of weight and was so happy and now its back on. Right before I got pregnant I bought a couple of pairs of super cute capris and I want to wear them more. And I lent most of my maternity clothes to my neighbor who is smaller than me and wearing them now. So I guess I will have to go out and get some maternity jean shorts. Other mommas out there did you have to break out your maternity wear sooner with your second baby?? Advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

In Loving Memory of my Gran!

I thought since it is Fathers Day today I would honor the memory of my Grandpa we called him Gran. Yesterday marked the ten year anniversary since his passing away. He was a great man of God and loved his family a whole lot. When he passed away we were all on a family trip to Williamsburg, Va which he planned and payed for the whole family. He was so excited about that trip and while there he suffered a major heart attack and passed away very suddenly. It was a great shock to our family but it was a blessing that we were all there as a family at that time and he was the happiest around his family. Now my Grandpa wasn't a huggy type Grandpa but he was very loving. My fondest memory is of their house in Ohio. It was a huge house with a great big yard with a pond, tree swing, sandbox and even a golf tee. My grandpa had an awesome garden and you could always find him there. Every single one of his grandchildren can remember taking rides on his tractor and helping him in the garden. It is a very special memory for me. I miss you Gran and know I will see you again in heaven!!
