That was last Sunday evening. All I could do was pray. Even then, I don't think I made any sense. But God knew my heart.
Mark took Kimmy, who is 14 weeks pregnant to the hospital. I waited anxiously. We had a few text messages back and forth for the next few hours. No news.
While I waited I notice a Bible study booklet out on the table. I picked it up. I read the whole thing, cover to cover. It was about different kinds of courage and how to use them. I felt God comforting me and showing me that I needed to be available for Mark and Kimmy.
To have courage, to do what I can do and God would do the rest.
They came home with no confirming answers but the baby had a strong heart beat.
Monday, Kimmy had an ultra sound and found out she has, mild placenta previa.
Both mother and daughter are healthy! Yes, it's a GIRL! But Kimmy needs to take it easy, and no lifting! Kimmy has more details over at her blog.
So, prayers are answered!
We all plan on helping out. I'm going to be taking a long lunch (two hours) to go and help during lunch and naps. How great is that! I work really close by. It's just minutes away.
Things will be busy around here but I am thrilled that God has a plan and that it includes a healthy, baby girl named Ila (eye-la).

Record low of 14 degrees for Nov. 24 recorded at Sea-Tac Airport
Posted by Seattle Times staff
Information from the Associated Press:
The temperature dropped to 14 degrees early Wednesday at Sea-Tac Airport, breaking the old record of 16 degrees from Nov. 24, 1985, as arctic air put Washington in a deep freeze.
Yes, we are cold! And another NO SCHOOL DAY (no work)!
This post is for all of you who still have their AC on (and you know who you are.)
How's the weather where you are?

I remember talking to Kimmy, our daughter, when she was first pregnant.
And I will laugh because it is a perfect name for me.
This is the name that my granddaughter has so lovingly has given me.

It has pockets!
When I put it on and danced around the room, showing the dogs and Tom
my new bag, I noticed it was reversible!
Thank You Mary!
Airplanes also have "ordinary" seats that are less or more desirable for some reason:
* seats next to the toilets may be smelly and have lots of people trooping up and down to them
* seats next to the galleys may be noisy especially when flight attendants prepare and roll-out the meals, and surprisingly smelly from steam-heated food
