Carry the Fire

For those of you who don't know me personally, you may not know that my parents are missionaries.

They moved from Eastern Washington to Southern Arizona a year and a half ago to become missionaries in Mexico. They love what they do and have seen God work in amazing ways. I am so proud of the way they have followed God's calling in their life and it is fun to see all the things they are doing.  If any of you are interested in following along on their journey, they have started a new website. Their non-profit organization is called Carry the Fire. Check out what they are doing, where they are speaking and ways to help out if you are feeling led to do so. You can also follow along on their blog for more detailed accounts of their work.

What's new here...

Life has just been whirling by in our house lately. The last few weeks seem to have gotten especially crazy. We have had our usual weekly stuff: Kindermusik, Journey, Home Group, Reading Time at the library and church. In the last week and a half I attended 3 baby showers, 2 of them were for me, 1 a complete surprise! My doctor appointments have went from every 2 weeks to twice a week. Last week I had to have two non-stress tests, an ultrasound, blood work, and an examine. I feel like I should get a special parking spot downtown! We are also getting ready for Friday when my parents arrive from Arizona. We are just so excited to see them, it has been over a year. That meant finishing up Isaiah's room (which obviously needed to be done anyway!) so they have a place to sleep and general cleaning and organizing that had been neglected. Of course being 36 weeks pregnant I am really starting to slow down so every project I try to tackle takes way longer then it should. My feet have been swelling something fierce, talking 10 lb gain in one week from fluid retention, so I have to stop and sit with them up for awhile. I feel so annoying right now, I can't help but complain about my ugly and painful feet and all the other aches and pains. Luckily my husband has been great and not only shows me a lot of sympathy but also does his best to help out so I can take it easy. Today I turn in my 24 hour urine test and await the results which tell me if I have to be on some kind of modified bed rest. Praying that that isn't the case but will take it as it comes.

That pretty much covers life in the Lewis house lately. Before I know it I will be posting about our newest little guy's arrival. Getting very excited and anxious for the big day!
