A New Week & A Busy One....

Wedding plans are in full swing here and so far I'm doing okay. I'm not eating much...partly because of being so busy that I just haven't taken time to do that and partly because my nerves are beginning to act up a bit. I'm really praying and asking the Lord to help me with my nerves. I don't want to be a bundle of nerves and be sick to my stomach as a result.

Last week didn't allow me for much posting on any of my blogs. For that I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know you are coming by to check on things and there isn't anything new to read. I will tell you today that at weigh-in yesterday I had lost 3.2 lbs. for last week. I really didn't watch what I ate. We had three showers between Friday night and Saturday night for Jessica and Ronnie. And at showers you know there is always cake and other goodies. So I didn't eat really healthy...but I guess I didn't eat enough to have gained. I really do need to do better with my water intake though. I haven't been.

I'm not sure I'll be posting anything the rest of this week. I'm working on Jessica's wedding veil today and then I have a secret project that I'm working on tomorrow and then I have Ronnie's bedroom to help him get packed up and his laundry to get all washed and then help him pack his bag for his honeymoon. I'll just pack the main things and I'm sure he'll add his own little things to it to take with him. So please pray for all of us. The rehearsal will be Friday evening at 7:30pm and the wedding will be Saturday at 2:30pm.

Have a great week....and I will be praying for each of you till I return next week!!

Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Sis. Julie, You can do ALL things through Christ and He will help you. So I am praying that your nerves don't take over and you really enjoy this time. I am praying for you. It is very good that even though you had acess to so many sweets that it did not cause you to gain. Glad for you. Have a great wedding and you will have some wonderful memories to look back to. I am praying for your son and Jessica also. connie from Texas

Sis. Julie said...

sis. connie....thank you so much for your encouraging words. I'm finding that the closer it gets the more emotional I'm becoming and the more my nerves are flaring up. I'm just that way though. I want everything to go perfectly for them on their day. I know it is in God's hands...and so are Ronnie and Jessica....but I'm a momma I guess. Thank you for your prayers. I sure do need them.

Love you!!!

PS...I know the Lord is helping me though because if He weren't...I'd be a T-Total basket-case!! LOL!!

I'm sure these next few days are going to be filled with all sorts of emotions!! I'm so excited for you & Jessica and Ronnie.

Sis. Julie said...

sis. pam...Amen!! In fact....the closer we get to Saturday the more emotional I'm getting. Saturday will be really bad for that I'm sure.

Wow, I can't believe tomorrow is the wedding! There are so many praying. I'm sure it will be beautiful and meaningful! Enjoy yourself and by all means have some of that Krispy Kreme cake. Your son only gets married once!

Congratulations on losing weight this week, too! Way to go!

sis. karen....I sit here with tears in my eyes at the thought that so many have been and are praying for Ronnie and Jessica and their families. The lives that these two and their testimony have touched is amazing. The prayers have been needed and appreciated. The next 30 hours are when those prayers are most needed. My son is getting married!! It is really beginning to sink in now and I'm so excited for him.

Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement. They mean so much to me!!
