Advice From People In High Places....

I feel so much better after a great weekend! I was really feeling like I needed some comfort a few nights ago, so I went to the scriptures. I said a little prayer that I would be able to find something that would bring me some comfort and I opened up my scriptures and totally started laughing when I read the scripture that my eyes first fell on.

"A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world." St. John 16:22

Heavenly Father really does have a sense of humor, doesn't He! "Natalie, just chill out! After this baby is born you'll feel so much better. You won't feel sick, you won't be a pimple head, you won't be cranky and hormonal, and when you hold that little baby for the first time, all your worries will melt away and you will be filled with so much joy! So, take a deep breath and stop complaining....please. Good grief."

Well, I don't think He'd really say it in those exact words...but you get the picture. : )

You have such beautiful children, and yet another on the way. Congratulations!!!

Don't worry, some day (hopefully soon) even Mike will get his priorities straight.

There is nothing like the scriptures to guide and comfort you in times of need.

Glad you're feeling better. Pregnancy hormones can really mess you up, can't they? And hurricanes...
