~Still nauseated...but loving this baby!~

Just a quick update. Saturday, the Lord helped me to get up and get dressed and go to my fruit/veggie market in front of my street. I haven't been able to go for weeks. On the way walking to the market, Noah asked me if his face was clean? I told him that he looked pretty good. To which he replied, "Good, for when I get to the market all of the ladies are going to say to me, "QUE LINDO.... interpretation...How CUTE!" He acts like he does NOT like their attention, however, he wanted to make sure his face was clean so they would still say he was cute. =D Everyone at the market was happy to see us again. Later that day our friends Carlos and Gloria came over and told us ALLLLLL they have been through here recently. They have to be modern day "JOBS"....for they have really had some HUGE trials here recently. (Their house and most of their things were flooded the other day when their roof FELL IN the other day when it hailed and rained!! Carlos who works as a taxi driver was robbed. Gloria has been SICK for weeks now and can't kick the sickness. Their car broke down. And their NICE piano and other things were stolen from their car....JUST TO NAME A FEW OF THEIR TRIALS!!) If you think of them, please pray for them, they are pretty discouraged. We had a nice visit with them, and they left here a little encouraged.
Since I had a pretty good day on Saturday, I was encouraged that maybe I was getting some better. Well, Sunday morning, I got up and put chicken in the oven to bake, and went into the dinning room and ate my breakfast, and got some green beans ready to cook. I brought those green beans in the kitchen and THEN I SMELLED THAT CHICKEN BAKING AND RAN OUT OF THE KITCHEN AND LOST MY BREAKFAST! UGH! When we first moved here, we thought it interesting that our kitchen had a door on it. NOW, WE KNOW THAT GOD KNEW I WOULD NEED THAT DOOR TO HELP BLOCK FOOD SMELLS DURING THIS TIME OF MORNING/ALL DAY SICKNESS WITH MY PREGNANCY! Our kids and Phillip had 2 good services on Sunday and God helped them. Kimberly and her class started practicing for their simple Christmas program. I was able to watch the Hobe Sound services for my church.
~Sorry to re-post a picture, but I didn't feel like taking any new ones yesterday. Our family, May, 2007~
On Monday, our friends, Jimmy and Farly invited us over for dinner. On Sunday Jimmy had called me to ask me what they should make for lunch so that I could eat with them. I told him that I was sorry but I honestly DID NOT KNOW what I could eat! I told them just to cook what they wanted and I would try to eat what I could. Well, I was sooooo DYING to tell him that I couldn't handle rice right now, but I knew I couldn't tell a Colombian not to make rice, for THEY ALWAYS have rice with almost every meal. (I was afraid that they would make "Arroz con Pollo"...or "Rice with Chicken" and THEN...what would I be able to eat!) So, I just prayed that God would help them make some food that I could eat. When we got there and I sat down to eat, there were some creamed potatoes with some cheese,(that tasted similar to the potatoes I'm used to eating in the USA =) a YUMMY fruit salad, and some good juice that I could drink. They made me some chicken too, but I couldn't eat that. But...I LOVED the potatoes and salad and ate and ate. THANK THE LORD....AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN MAKE OR SERVE RICE!!!! THAT IS AMAZING for Colombians. So, God totally Guided them what to make so I could eat. YEA! God is awesome! We had a nice visit with our friends.
I'm 13 weeks along now, so hopefully I can kick this nausea in the next few weeks. If I'm not better by Thanksgiving, we'll just do something else that day, and I'll made a big dinner for Christmas. I just don't want to get sick on turkey and the trimmings and not want them for many Thanksgivings to come. =( Thanks for your prayers for us. God is helping our people and our churches too. Also, Phillip's Bible classes that He teaches for 3 hours every Saturday are going really GOOD and the students are LOVING learning more about God, the Bible, the Christian family, etc.

You poor thing! You have been soooo sick! I think of you often over there being so sick and so far from home. Too bad someone couldn't mail you some Phenergan tablets! Those are wonderful for people with nausea during pregnancy! Hope now that you are beginning your 2nd trimester, you will begin to feel better!

What a sweet hubby! So glad he did that for you. There have been times when I've gotten discouraged with housework and David came along and cleaned for me and it just sort of gave me a boost of motivation to get me going again.

Heather,
Although I haven't been blogging much lately, I have been thinking of and praying for you!!! I really haven't ever had morning sickness to speak of, but I do understand how it feels to have children in the house when you feel inadequate to meet their needs! Our church mentions you all's name almost every Wednesday evening in prayer meeting. Even though you don't know many of our people, they were so impressed by your family and the calling you are fulfilling. They think much of you and pray often for you. Love you all!

A little boy worried about a dirty face. Count your blessings that he even thought of it.
Hope you feel better soon. We are praying for you.
I'll tell Harold to give you a wave from the choir on Sunday.
