Creating New Life is So Beautifully Difficult.

So...finding the time and energy to blog has been difficult lately. Between constant/nighttime sickness and persistent fatigue, I am spent. Thank God for His promise in John 16:21,
"When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world."
Nearly 11 weeks in, and whatever of "me" that I haven't given to Jordyn is poured into the life being formed inside me. A life that is currently the size of a "cumquat", whatever that is. (pictured above) At the moment, he or she (or they) are already undergoing what would seem to be finishing touches. For instance, the taste buds and fingerprints are forming this week. Also, no more webbed feet and hands. In fact, he or she is basically a smaller version of what they will be. Interestingly enough, Jordyn saw a video of the fetus at only 7 weeks and said, "baby". Isn't that comical? Scientists are trying to decide at what point a "blob of tissues" becomes a "right-bearing moral agent", and my 18 month old recognized that it was, in fact, a baby at just 7 weeks without any prompting. This is what the Bible calls "suppressing the truth in unrighteousness". The willfully ignorant will undergo the greatest condemnation. (Luke 12:42-48)

In other news: we got an iPad Air! Jordyn likes it a lot. It will be, and has already proven to be, a wonderful tool for homeschooling. This means, we now accept iTunes gift cards. Thanks!!

Fun with the iPad:
