Stephen and I are doing great. Just thinking about how busy things have been for me this month makes me exhausted, which is pretty much how I've been feeling every day by the time my head hits the pillow (if I wasn't already feeling it by about 3:00 in the afternoon). You know the feeling when you have been so wrapped up in projects that by the end of the day you literally can't think straight anymore? Yeah, that has been hitting around 4 pm the last few weeks. I'm not sure if it's more from the pregnancy or just from being so swamped at work. I'm expecting another week or two of the same, and then maybe work will slow down some. PLUS we're going on a little end of summer vacation in 2 weeks, so that's sure to help! I'm definitely needing one right now!
On another note, I got to hear Stephen speak to the youth on Wednesday night. He did a fantastic job and I was so encouraged and challenged by the message he gave. He taught on the supremacy of Christ from Hebrews 1:1-4. It was such a great reminder of the beautiful, mind-blowing act of Christ making atonement for our sins. Just hearing about our great God and the great price He paid to redeem mankind (sinful me) almost made me cry. And then to read in Hebrews 1:3, that "after He had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven" and took His rightful place on the throne, just makes me want to give Him the praise He is due even more. And I can't think of anything more precious than to hear that coming so lovingly, eloquently, and humbly out of the mouth of my husband. I have truly been blessed beyond measure.
Well, more to come this weekend but now I need to go get busy with the things of the day. I took a much needed half-day off work and slept in, so it's time to start moving in that direction. I hope you guys are all doing well!
