Update: Overwhelming Blessings

Good morning!

As I write this it is 9:13 a.m. on Monday. I am sitting here thinking about everything that is going on in our lives and just overwhelmed by the blessings of the Lord! The scripture that continues to ring in our home is Proverbs 10:22, The blessings of the Lord, IT maketh rich and he adds NO sorrow to it. The blessings of the Lord are truly reigning in our home! Let me just share what is going on!

Blessing #1 - Trinity Faith McCart is 10 days old today..... and guess what??? She went to bed at 11:00 last night and is STILL sleeping!!!! WOW! UH-MAZING! Being our second time around with a child.... we are doing things a lot earlier that worked with Tyler Junior. For example... last night, we gave her a 3 1/2 ounce bottle (around 9:15) so we could gage how much she was getting before bed, and so we knew she had a full tummy.... not to mention, she did nurse a 3 times before we officially went to bed at 11:00. WOW! It worked! That means mommy & daddy got a FULL night sleep! Praise the Lord!!!

Blessing #2 - I am a milk machine! It's a bit overwhelming.... I have over 100 ounces of milk already in my freezer for Trinity! WOW! And it keeps on coming! For sure an "overflowing abundance!" I think my freezer is more full right now with milk than it ever was with Tyler Junior and we've only officially had Trin home for a week!

Blessing #3 - My parents were here for 5 days helping out!!! WOW! What a blessing they were to us!! Since I did end up having a C-section, it was extremely helpful having them here! My mom cooked UH-MAZING meals for us the whole time.... AND both my mom & dad cleaned our house pretty much from top to bottom while they were here!!! WOW! Tubs, showers, toilet, baseboards, mirrors, dusting, vacuuming, laundry, hardwood floors, tightened loose tables... and the list goes on! Some things I had not done in a LONG time!!! And... my mom woke up with Trinity and brought her in to me so I could nurse her at night. WOW! Thank you Mom & Dad!!! A true blessing of the Lord!! Tyler Junior, Trinity, Timothy & Taylor will really appreciate the standard my parents set! I'm sure I will do the same thing when they are older and married and beginning their family!

Blessing #4 - We are MOVING into a NEW house THIS MONTH!!!! We have been building a house.... it's bigger than the house we are currently leasing AND our monthly expenses are even going to go down SIGNIFICANTLY! Brand new! We walked through it this weekend... the carpet is in, the wood floors are down, it's painted, the granite counter tops are in, the fence in the backyard is up & looks awesome... we are scheduled for a walk-through on Friday & probably closing and moving before the end of the month! It's so fun to see things get done!

Blessing #5 - We have continually been blessed from Tyler's parents with things for the house, Tyler Jr & Trinity! What an amazing blessing! Things we didn't expect or even think about! Thank you Dwight & Jeannine!! Praise the Lord!!!

Blessing #6 - My sister, Angie & her family are coming to visit this weekend to help us pack!!! :) I'm so excited to see my sister!!! What a blessing! It will be a quick trip, but how awesome that they are coming to help us!! AND I get to spend fun time with my sister!! I'm SOOOO excited!!

Blessing #7 - My husband has been an awesome help! He's been great with Tyler Junior, playing with him, rough-housing and making him feel special. I think that has helped a lot with Tyler Jr adjusting well to having a sister in the house... and not acting up. :) What a blessing! Not to mention all the diapers he's changed!! Thank you "Daddy!"

Blessing #8 - Awesome friends! We have so many awesome friends... and family members who have been willing to help on different levels! Watching Tyler Junior, providing a meal (thanks Jilly & Doug!), gifts for Trin... and the list goes on! I feel so blessed!!!

Thank you Lord!!! I could think of more.... but that is just a start to the extreme blessings! Truly, the blessing of the Lord IT maketh rich and he adds no toil with it! Thank you Lord!!!!
