Baby Knight no 3

All is fine and well with baby Knight.
Healthy, growing at the right speed.
Good heartbeat.

When you have lost babies, 
it is such a relief and a joy to see that scan,
to see the little heart pumping.

I Thanked God yesterday,
For this beautiful gift,
I am excited to meet him/her now.

 Chronicles 16:27 

 'Splendor and majesty are before him;
       strength and joy in his dwelling place.'

There is Joy in his dwelling place.
Like a fountain,
of living fresh water.
When our lives are dry and Joy is not present,
we can go to God,
sit at his feet,
love on him,
cry our tears,
pour out our complaint
and sit and rest 
in Him.
In His presence we can find his Joy. 

Jeremiah 31:13 

 13 Then maidens will dance and be glad,
       young men and old as well.
       I will turn their mourning into gladness;
       I will give them comfort and
joy instead of sorrow.

we have a lot to be joyful about.
We are children of God,
loved and cherished by him,
blessed and filled with purpose,
we are filled with destiny,
we are royal,

Get a dose of Jesus today
and be renewed with his JOY!

I read this today,
please pop over and join in,
reading Gods word together.

Remind me who you are....

do you love me,
even when I can do nothing?
do you love me,
when its a struggle just to get through the day?
do you see me,
when my heart is quiet
and resting?
do you know me,
when my hands can not accomplish,
as much as they could?
do you still hold me,
in my weakness?

I Do.

When you're low.

Honestly, things have been tough recently.
I'm used to doing things,
 cleaning the house, 
cooking the meals,
washing the clothes,
bathing the girls,
bedtime routine,
studying for my degree,
getting out...

Not recently!

Being pregnant has knocked me sidewards,
well, horizontal anyway!


I am so tired, nauseous, dizzy,
breathless and plain out of shape for most of the above!

My Husband has to work,
I have a friend help me by doing the morning school run.
When James is home, he's having to do a lot of my work,
watch the girls,
sometimes prepare meals,
plus He has other work he needs to do in the evening.
We are both shattered,
for different reasons!

I don't know if you remember the Crocus 
picture that God gave me,
well I kept thinking on it.
One night I just got so fed up,
I had been crying,
tired of not being able to do anything,
I was angry,
I felt that God had mislead me.
" I cant cope! You must have been wrong!"

James came in,
also exhausted,
frustrated with all the extra things.
But we sat and spoke.
"Its not the end of the world, that we are behind on the laundry,
Its not the end of the world, if the kids are a bit out of routine,
Its not the end of the world, that I don't get to cook every night...
God has prompted us to walk in this direction,
to have another baby,
So it is what we are doing,
and in his strength we will get through!

I felt a silly hormonal woman..
which I am ( !!)
but sometimes,
We worry about the silly things,
rather than just seeing it all as a season,
one in which we need to rest.
Enjoy the fact we are a family,
and we are looking forward to having another addition.

The next morning-things were lighter,

I wrote this song today,
I am putting it to music,
which is another thing I haven't done in ages!


Why did you take your eyes off of me?
why did you make them focus on the storm?
Don't you know that I'm your Father?
And I take, great delight in caring for you.

Wont you lean into me.
Wont you lean into me.
Wont you take the weight off your own feet,
and lean again on me.

You started out well, so full of faith,
You placed your feet out upon the waters.
You never once broke your gaze with my eyes,
You stood, You walked on water.

Why did you take your eyes off of me?
Why did you make them focus on the storm?
Don't you know that I'm your Father?
And i take, great delight in caring for you.

Wont you lean into me.
Wont you lean into me.
Wont you take the weight off your own feet,
and lean again on me.

There has been a reason I have been away...

I haven't been at my blog as much as I used to,
I have been a bit pre-occupied with other things!

Yes, We are expecting our 3rd baby.
I am almost 11 wks now,
and hormones are and have been raging!
I've been quite poorly with it.
But am feeling a little less tired now.

So forgive my absence,
I have other things keeping me busy for a moment.

Appreciate all your prayers though.

A few weeks ago,
I was drifting off to sleep.
As I did,
I had this sudden image of a lovely purple flower on a mountain top.
I don't know how,
but I knew it to be a Crocus.
It was a strong image,
and as I studied it,
its surroundings began to change.
The flower remained,
As the mountains it was rooted on,
turned into the heat of a vast desert!
The sand blew to and fro,
around this Crocus.
Then I saw snow fall,
Then the winds came, 
they blew hard and fast around this flower.
the sun shone,
and hard.
The flower 

I felt God whisper into my heart.
"You are like this Crocus,
When the storms come,
you will not be shaken,
when the heat is on,
your faith will remain.
When the drought comes,
when you can not feel my presence,
you will

I was so moved by this word to my heart,
I had to find out more about the nature of a Crocus.
I got up,
and looked it up.

'The Crocus is considered a hardy plant.
Hardiness of plants is a term used to describe their ability to survive adverse growing conditions. It is usually limited to discussions of climatic adversity. Thus a plant's ability to tolerate coldheatdroughtflooding or wind are typically considered measurements of hardiness.'

I did not previously know this about these flowers.
I was taken aback by the accuracy of the word.
I was also encouraged to hear these words of comfort,
for when the tough times roll in,
and they do!
I take hope in the fact that,
if our foundation is firm,
if our feet are on the rock,
we shall remain.

 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
       out of the mud and mire;
       he set my feet on a rock
       and gave me a firm place to stand.
Psalm 40:2
