Merry Christmas! 2018

Hi everyone!,

I hope that you had the best Christmas Holiday that one could ever hope for and imagine. I spent Christmas this year with my husband’s family. We enjoyed eachother so good- the Lord is so amazing. Our “Uncle Mayne” (my children’s Uncle) took a beautiful video for our family’s time together during Christmas. My heart is so full!!

Upcoming Labor and Delivery – GOD With Us

jehovah-shammah

Praise the Lord.

Daniel and I are so close to the birth of our third son. God has been so gracious to us throughout this pregnancy. I have told everyone that it has been the most easy, stress-free pregnancy out of the three that I’ve ever had. Is it because of the summertime? Or, is it because the Lord is with us? I believe that Jehohovah Shammah (“The Lord is There”) is with us.

Yesterday before bed, hubby felt a leading to pray over me, and anoint me and my belly where my dear son is. It warmed my heart to know that he wanted to pray over us, and ask the Lord to give us a touch and a safe delivery. He anointed me and my belly; he prayed and I prayed with him. We prayed together unto the Lord.

Afterward, he went downstairs to grab our Prayer “Bread Box” that his father gave to us when we first got married. The bread box contains a row of scriptures, or manna (bread) for one to pluck and read both front and back sides. He picked one – I picked one.

Mine said:

“In the day of my trouble, I will call upon thee:Β  for thou wilt answer me.” -Psalm 86:7

“When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee.” -Isaiah 43:2a.

God is so amazing. He is alive, living and active in the lives of His children. These scriptures that the Lord allowed me to pluck, were just for me. Just for me and Esriel. It is referring to my upcoming childbirth. I never ponder labor and delivery until the actual moment, as to not become anxious– but the Holy Spirit says here, IN THE DAY OF MY (YOUR) TROUBLE, WHITNEY– I WILL ANSWER. Hallelujah – He has me in the palm of His holy hands. He will protect me.

The second scripture is REASSURANCE that HE will be protecting my baby Esriel throughout our labor and delivery. When I saw this scripture, I nearly cried. I felt chills and knew that the Lord was Jehovah Shammah, GOD WITH ME – for HE IS RIGHT THERE! “WHEN THOU (ESRIEL) PASSETH THROUGH THE WATERS (CHILDBIRTH), I WILL BE WITH THEE.”

My Lord, He is so good. He has blessed us- He calms my nerves, HE SPEAKS TO ME. HE KNOWS MY EVERY NEED, MY EVERY ANGST, MY EVERY CONCERN! Glory, Jesus!!!!!

You call me worthy, worthy of your blessings, worthy of your prayers, Jesus, worthy of your comfort. Thank you for being the God that I so desperately need every day of my human life. There are no words, no gratitude that can measure up to the ADORING LOVE that you have FOR ME and my family!!! You are insurmountable, holy, gracious and righteous Jesus!!

THE LORD IS THERE, Jehovah Shammah!! HALLELUJAH!

Adventures in Homeownership!

We’ve only been living in our new home for 5 months, and the joy that it has brought us already is so astounding!! Here are a few of our portraits in and around our new home. We feel so blessed and thank the Lord very often for this gift of homeownership!

I just adore my sons Daniel O’Brien and Gabriel Elijah. Seeing them every day run around our home, wrestling, running up and down the stairs, climbing on furniture, leaving their sticky hands on the walls, all of it just makes me so joyful (even the aftermath!). I love seeing them happy and thriving, thanks again Jesus.

I love how my husband comes home every day and takes care of the grounds and the grass. He turns his sprinklers on every week to make sure that his grass is thriving. He also takes pride in taking care of our new rose bushes in the front of our home, as well as taking care of a Peace Lilly plant that his sister gave us for our housewarming. He has also adopted a baby tree and repotted her in our backyard. Whoever would have thought that a big burly man such as Daniel would have such a green thumb and a love for even the littlest of nature.

You said that if we are FAITHFUL over a FeW things, HALLELUJAH, that YOU would MAKE us RULER over many! Glory.
