So Cute

Okay, I know I'm going way overboard, but I can't help it. Look at the swing we bought for the baby this past weekend. Isn't it the most adorable thing? We probably could've gotten by with our old swing, but every little girl needs a princessy-looking swing, right? Hopefully she'll use it a lot, is all I can say LOL. We have an ultrasound to see Cecily again tomorrow, which I'm very much looking forward to. Oh, and tomorrow's the Inauguration, of course, which should be quite exciting. And this is a bit off-topic, but I wanted to share: the message in church on Sunday seemed very timely. It was out of 1st Thessalonians and Pastor Dave spoke about cultivating an attitude of gratitude despite circumstances. I felt that spot-on for these tough times. 1st Thessalonians 5:14-21: We exhort you, brothers, admonish the disorderly, encourage the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient toward all. See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good, for one another, and for all. Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you. Don't quench the Spirit. Don't despise prophecies. Test all things, and hold firmly that which is good.

That is the most precious swing, Cecily is certainly going to look like a princess. Can't wait to see ultrasound pics!
I am so proud to be around to witness history in making, the inauguration of the first black man to hold this office, President Obama. Hopefully this will be a healing time for our country. I do love what your pastor said about the attitude of gratefulness, how appropriate!
