What He Does

He brings me joy
He brings laughter to my heart
Which he has stolen.

It sounds crazy but I don't think
Two people were more meant for each other

He knows my weakness
He knows my strength
With who He finds the same strength in.

The Lord knew what He was doing
When He brought us together.

He loves who I am
He loves who I want to be
More like Christ.

I will love him as much as I can
With the time God has given us on this earth.

I love you Lennon. Like we have said to each other before, I am glad we didn't end up with anyone else but each other. You are the love of my life and I am better with you than without.

Yes He is back! Our little Ranger has been found. We put an add in the paper and it came out just yesterday. Then after church we got a call saying that they thought they have our dog that was in the paper. When we got there to pick him up he was so excited to see us and how much I wanted to be upset with him for getting out but I just loved on him. So now no more wondering...thank the Lord. We are a complete family once again. Here is an older pic of him at 6 months, he is now 10 months.

Lost Puppy

The Noland family is sad today because our beloved dog Ranger is lost. He got out of the dog pin somehow last night and have not been able to find him. Please pray that we will find him soon or that he will come back. We love this dog. :(

Sweet Moment

Last night, during out usual routine of settling into bed, I was reading out of one of my pregnancy books. For some reason, I skipped towards the end when it talks about labor and delivery (kinda scary to think about). One section was talking about the part where the baby arrives and is cleaned and all. The book suggested that the "coach", Lennon, tell the mom how great she did. So out of nowhere I looked at L and said, "OK, now after I have the baby the book says you need to congratulate me on how great I did giving birth" and he said with a huge grin on his face "Of course I will tell you that, you will do great". For a split second we were just grinning from ear to ear (I was getting a little teary eyed) and thought about that moment to come. Wow! How amazing it will be....

The Fog Has Cleared

It's been too long between blogs. I will shape up soon as a blogger...

These past few days have been tough (on my body and mind). I can breath better now. My prescription has helped clear the fogginess. Now all I have leftover is a cough but even that is feeling better. Being at the edge of my second trimester I feel the energy coming alive in my veins and I feel ready to do more. Praise God!

Working at The Salvation Army, you see a lot of people at their lowest point. It makes you realize how good you have it and so very thankful. I admit I have been upset that I have not been my good feeling self lately. Its' definitely worth it for this wonderful baby but I just wanna feel a little like myself. Now I can see that light at the end of the tunnel.

So I just want to share my joy of coming out of the haze of sickness and getting ready for the "most wonderful time of the year". At the same time I feel the Lord nudging me to wake up more often thinking about how can I help someone besides myself today.
