Update on us

I'm currently just shy of 38 weeks pregnant now and the jig is up!

My blood pressure is getting worse.
My blood sugars are wack-a-doodle.
I'm old.

The doc says it's time to deliver and I'm not fighting him about it.

Wednesday October 12th is "D" day.

I have to let go of all control and completely rely on God for both our sakes.
He has carried us thus far.
He gave us this gift against all odds.
She shouldn't have survived past 12 weeks, yet here she is!

I told myself that anything past 36 weeks would be gravy...
I feel like my gravy boat overflowing.

Please offer a prayer for us on Wednesday.

The paracord bracelet

My Boy Scout and survival enthusiast, Kyle, recently discovered how to make paracord bracelets.
They're actually pretty neat!

The elasticity of paracord and its ability to withstand immense weight makes it a very useful tool during emergency situations. Paracord is a must-have in every survival kit. Paracord can be used as bootlaces, clothesline, pet collars, emergency tourniquets, knife handle sheaths, belts and gun straps.

He's spent the greater part of two days making them for his friends and Scout troop.

He's really quite good at it and is considering selling them online!

I just don't have the heart to tell him that its just like knitting...
but for dudes!

Sometimes I like a little artsy with my fartsy...

Strange artwork is showing up all over the Creamer household this week!
Like this masterpiece on the family note board:

Pictures of guns on the bulletin board

(ha ha, get it? BULLET-in board!)

It's even showing up on the FURNITURE!

Thank goodness for washable markers!

But this one is by far my favorite:

Right to Life Sunday

Yesterday we participated in Right to Life Sunday. It is a peaceful and prayerful presence in our community to protest the horrors of abortion and pray for an end to abortion in our country.

Some stood in silent prayer:

Others held signs:

Even the littlest ones understand that the womb must be protected as one of the safest places on earth.

Because if abortion isn't wrong,
then nothing is.

Thank you good Father, Gabriel Espinoza, for organizing this event. And God bless the parishioners of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and Holy Family Catholic churches.

Please pray for an end to abortion.
