Hello Third Trimester!

Today I am 28 weeks pregnant! Wow! I can not tell you how fast this pregnancy is going compared to Lula Mae's! Dr. Erickson won't stop Jayce from coming once I hit 36 weeks so I am possibly 8 weeks away from delivery! Although I am 12 weeks away from my actual due date. I must say that I did not go full term with Lula Mae and I don't think I will make it there with Jayce either. He is much bigger and stronger and my belly is HUGE! Well, it is huge compared to what I looked like at 28 weeks with Lula Mae. Maybe it is because my body just knows what to do this time around, I am not really sure! So, what will the next 8 to 12 weeks hold for us? Lots of alone time with Lula Mae (for both Charlie and myself), lots of budgeting, lots of cleaning, lots of organizing, lots of praying, lots of preparing Lula Mae (trying to at least) and lots of anxiety. Yes, I know "be anxious for nothing", and I pray about that every day, but I am only human and I do worry and have anxieties. I hope that everyone will pray for us as we come to the end of this pregnancy. We are ready for this little guy to get here, but at the same time we aren't... I know that sounds confusing but any parent who has welcomed their second baby into the family has probably had these same emotions.

Now I need your help. I am having the hardest time deciding on a bible verse to go in the nursery. I have it narrowed down to a few and I would love to see what everyone else thinks! Here are my ideas:
  • Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. ( Joshua 1:9)

  • Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself. (Luke 10:27)
  • Be Joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

  • I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always. As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. (obviously this is not a verse, but I love it too)
As you can see there are too many choices!!! I just don't know which one to use! I love all of them... and that is the problem! So leave me a comment and tell me which one you like the best! Also, if you have any other verses that you like that would be good in a nursery feel free to leave that too! I am hoping to get the room painted in the next 2 or 3 weeks (that could be up to my husband and his helper though in all honesty)! I am ready to have the decorating behind me so we can all sit back and enjoy it! Thanks for all your help!
