Yes that is right, I am expecting. After two years of trying to have a baby the Lord has smiled upon us. Did you know that the bible says children are a reward. We are so happy!!!
Here is some history of us. Before we were wed I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and they told me that they didn't think we could have children but if we wanted them that now would be our best shot. ( I had just had a surgery that burned most of the endo they had found.) So we walked away alittle overwhelmed but knew that we both wanted children and also that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. So we were married a small humble wedding. Afterwards we had a church pray over us and within 3 weeks we were pregnant with our daughter who is now 11. When Malia was 3 mths old my endo started coming back and the docs just told me it was depression. We went ahead and started trying for another child in fear that we would not be able to have another child. Since my doctor would not listen to anything I figured it was time to move on. Ladies let me tell you this always listen to your body and the Holy Spirit let it guide you and do not let any doctor tell you that you are wrong, or crazy, or depressed. After 2 years of searching for a new doctor I found one. His name is Doctor Rojas and his office was in Inverness FL, He was the only one that was willing to listen to me and he put me in for another surgery. Sure enough he found endo and he burned it off for me. He recommended that I start a pretty serious medicine called Lupron that it could possibly stop the endo. I had to take this medication for 7 months and it basically put me through menopause. When it was over my menstrual cycle resumed to normal and with in 2 mths of going of the meds We got pregnant, ( a time period of about 4 1/2 yrs had passed since the birth of our daughter.) We found out at 6 weeks that we were pregnant with twins, it was very exciting. Unfortunately it just wasn't time for that. I miscarried both twins at around 9 weeks. That was hard. I cannot even describe how it feels. Praise the Lord that 3 mths later I was pregnant with my son who is now 5 yrs old. So now we can almost come current. We moved to Tn from Fl when my son was 2 and when he turned 3 we started trying for our 3rd child. It took two yrs but we are now pregnant. Words cannot express how excited we are. Keep checking the blog because I have a feeling there will be a lot of pregnancy and baby files up for freebies and for sale in the VDBC store. Thanks for reading and sharing in my story!!!

Exciting news!!!!!

I have some exciting news. I have just become the latest designer to join the VDBC team. If you aren't sure who this is or what this is, it is Visual designs by Chris. This is a website that sells digital die cutter files and also has many neat little extras like challenges and a cool Bingo. These are files that can be used with most of the die cutting machines out there. For Example KNK Craft Robo Wishblade, Pazzles, and even Cricut. Isn't that exciting. Ladies do you realize how convenient it is to buy files instead of sitting at your computer trying to think up what font your going to use or which image you want to cut. You know as well as I do part of one of the goals of scrapbooking is finding a way to get great pages without spending 2 or 3 hours on one page.This really helps eliminate some of that time.Another thing is think about how you go into the store like any one of the craft stores out there and you search for that perfect sticker or die cut to add to your page. You finally find it pay anywhere from 2.99 -5.99 and up go to the register buy and then go home and use it. Thats it. You can only use it once. Or you could go to Visual designs by Chris find the category you are searching in, choose a design, purchase it, download it and then it is yours to make again and again for your pages or cards or projects. There are endless possibilities and it is a one time purchase. I think it is awesome and I am so thrilled to be able to offer people fun , cute , and creative die cuts. If anyone has any ideas of things they are looking for let me know. Thanks to everyone at VDBC

The Goodness of the Father & Apology for my absentmindness

God is so awesome and he once again proved it to me this morning. Not that he has anything to prove to me. When I got online this morning right there on Yahoo was pictures of the two journalist Euna Lee and Laura ling being reunited with their families. I clicked to watch the slideshow of pics and my heart just broke and the tears started slowly flowing down my face. How joyous of a moment that must have been for these woman. I sit and think about what they must have faced while they were in N.Korea. I cannot imagine the thoughts they must have pondered about their future. In the article it talked about that Laura Ling said they thought they were about to go to a hard labor camp but when they got to where they were going they looked up and seen Bill Clinton. Can you imagine. Some people would say that this has nothing to do with God, but I disagree, God's hand is on these woman and he saved them from the fate of a hard labor camp or even worse death by execution. Thank you Lord.

Now I would like to make an apology to all of the people who posted comments on my blog last week. See I am new to the blog scene and I just found those comments today!! Oh isn't that sad. I will be getting back with you all and showing my appreciation for your positive feedback. Thanks to all and keep reading, just keep reading, just keep reading!!! LOL!
