Prayers...

For this reason we never become discouraged. Even though our physical being is gradually decaying, yet our spiritual being is renewed day after day. And this SMALL and temporary trouble we suffer will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory, much greater than the trouble. For we fix our attention not on the things that are seen, but on things unseen. What can be seen only lasts for a time, but what can not be seen lasts forever. 2 Corinthians 4: 16-18

We are fixing our attention on things unseen. God's plan is the ultimate and I KNOW with all of my heart that HE will provide and take care of us.

I have been having a LOT of early contractions and had to be admitted into the hospital twice during the past week. I am on meds that are somewhat controlling the contractions. I am on bed-rest and will be until these little angels arrive. I am trying to stay focused and controlled and non-emotional, but it is hard. I know that the more I am on an even-kill, the better it is for the babies. I am trying to be solid and calm. I take that back....God is being solid and calm through me, because without Him, I would be a total mess. I have a feeling that this whole situation is harder for the people around me than on me.

I am just asking for your prayers. Please pray that Jack and Lucy stay safely inside until they are full-term and healthy. I am 25 weeks and 1 day today....my Doctor is setting short-term goals for me- so the BIG goal as of now is to get to 28 weeks. So, 3 more weeks, then when we get to that point, we will set a new goal, and so on.

On another note: Here are some new pictures of the nursery in progress.... I obviously can't work on it anymore, so I am so thankful that we have gotten done what has already been done. Check out the furniture that my mother-in-law glazed for us. Isn't is gorgeous?!? I am LOVING the nursery! I love to go in there and just sit and stare. The curtains will be in next week. I am covering lampshades in pink toile for Lucy to match her bedding, and one in blue toile to match Jack's bedding. My sweet sorority sister, Christie, is painting canvases for above their beds with thier "master circle" monograms. Also, I am looking for some little hanging coat-racks to hang above their night-stands and lamps for thier "coming-home" outfits. Also, we (Cal and my mom and dad) are putting an extra shelve under the changing to table to put slide-in baskets for all of the changing equipment. I am so excited to see it all coming together!

Hi Adair. Delurking. I've been following you since seeing you on TTCYFC on ivillage. You may or may not remember me. I love your positive outlook on life. You never complain, only always hope and pray for the best. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I really hope and pray that Jack and Lucy stay put for a few more weeks at least, hopefully more.
