My cup overflows

I'm in a Bible study that meets every Monday morning at a friends house, we've been meeting for 3+ years and it has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. It's a group filled with women from the ripe age of 20 to 80+, the wisdom that flows and the joy that is amongst us is a gift in itself. They are the kind of friends you can call anytime of the day, no matter what. They know my strong points, my weaknesses, my greatest joys and always know exactly when I need a little encouragement. 
This morning I was blessed beyond what I deserve and my heart is still rejoicing over the gift that today was. They threw Will and I the most beautiful baby shower. The words and verses that were prayed over baby Will were enough to keep the tears flowing. I was completely overwhelmed, I started crying before anyone even started sharing! The gifts were so generous and so much appreciated. 
I cannot tell you how excited we are to meet this precious bundle in just two short months. Having this shower made it seem so much more real. Thank you to my amazing friends Sarah and Rachel for hosting such a beautiful day and to each one of my Monday morning girls for blessing my little family with so much love. I am beyond grateful for you and the support you have given me throughout the years.

Each friend wrote down a word of wisdom or a Bible verse for my precious boy



They are so good to me
I left my beautiful shower with a leap back in my step. I love how the Lord always knows exactly what we need. My heart was encouraged and I have been filled with strength which I've been praying for. The thought of having two little ones and meeting each one of their needs and doing it well is overwhelming. Not to mention the sleep deprivation and temper tantrums that comes along with it. Lots of deep breaths, quiet time with Jesus and time to just be still. I can do this and quite frankly, I can't wait. God has been so faithful and I know that He will continue to give me all that I need to be a great mom to my precious blessings. 
Thank you Jesus for dear friends; for their love, support, encouragement, gifts and loving me though all my tears.
My cup is overflowing.
