Things are looking up for us! We're going to deliver on January 9th at 5:30pm. The doctor wasn't really happy with pushing the delivery so close, so his people called the hospital people and well....things are now fixed! We can't wait. Kristy's appointments are going great and the baby is progressing well too! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!!
Things are moving along quite well. I miss the doctor's appointments with Kristy due to work, but we're trucking right along. Kristy's sister, Karen, is coming in for Christmas. We are really excited to have her in with us to celebrate. Kristy's delivery is slated for January 12th, but this is up for change since that puts it really close to Caleb's due date. The doctor had originally scheduled for January 8th, but an unexpected meeting came up in Dallas that he has to tend to. We'll see if things will change.... The hospital is booked up solid until the 12th as it stands right now.
I had a dream, Joseph, I don't understand it, not really, but I think it was about a birthday celebration for our Son. I think that was what it was all about. The people had been preparing for it for about six weeks. They had decorated the house and bought new clothes. They'd gone shopping many times and bought elaborate gifts. It was peculiar, though, because the presents weren't for our Son.
They wrapped them in beautiful paper and tied them with lovely bows and stacked them under a tree. Yes, a tree, Joseph, right in their house. They'd decorated the tree also. The branches were full of glowing balls and sparkling ornaments. There was a figure on the top of the tree. It looked like an angel might look. Oh, it was beautiful.
Everyone was laughing and happy. They were all excited about the gifts. They gave the gifts to each other, Joseph, not to our Son. I don't think they even knew Him. They never mentioned His name. Doesn't it seem odd for people to go to all that trouble to celebrate someone's birthday if they don't know Him?
I had the strangest feeling that if our Son had gone to this celebration He would have been intruding. Everything was so beautiful, Joseph, and everyone so full of cheer, but it made me want to cry. How sad for Jesus -not to be wanted at His own birthday celebration.
I'm glad it was only a dream. How terrible, Joseph, if it had been real.

Front headlines on Catholic News Agency this morning... Yet another example of how Planned Parenthood is misleading our youth by teaching them how to avoid the laws in this country. I encourage you to watch this video as it shows a 13 year old going into some of the same clinics in Indiana that are selling the gift certificates out this year from the story I initially sent out...
I'm sorry, but this sinks to all time lows.. Just what one would want for Christmas....
Indianapolis, IN (LifeNews.com) -- In what could easily become the most offensive Christmas offer ever a Planned Parenthood affiliate is offering Christmas gift certificates. Purchasers can use them to give the gift of abortion even though the group claims that's not its purpose or intent.
"Looking for an unusual, yet practical gift this holiday season? Planned Parenthood of Indiana (PPIN) is now offering gift certificates for services or the recipient's choice of birth control method," the abortion business says.
The gift certificates can be purchased in increments of $25 online at the group's web site or for any amount at some of PPIN's 35 statewide facilities.
While PPIN president and CEO Betty Cockrum says they can be redeemed for contraception, birth control and legitimate medical services like breast exams and Pap tests, they can also be used to pay for abortions.
"Why not buy a loved one a gift this holiday season that they really need," Cockrum says in a press release LifeNews.com obtained. "The gift certificates are also a wonderful idea for that person in your life who puts everyone else first."
"Please join Planned Parenthood of Indiana and give the gift of health this holiday season," she adds.
According to Chrystal Struben-Hall, PPIN's vice president, buyers of gift certificates can give the gift of death, too.
She confirmed to WISH-TV that they can be used for abortions, even though that's not the intended purpose.
"They really are intended for preventative healthcare. We decided not to put restrictions on the gift certificates so it's for whatever people feel they need the services for most," she said.
Indiana Family Institute President Curt Smith told the television station he is"appaled" by the gift certificates and thinks a better way to help women is to provide financial support for the dozens of pregnancy centers around the state.
"I think the way to help family planning is to give the money where there's no agenda. So if somebody wants to help a woman at a time of crisis, they can support the life centers throughout Indiana," he said.
Our little girl turned another year older today!
Happy birthday to our little Amber!!!!
