Okay, call me crazy. Maybe I am. Clif and I went to a revival meeting last night. We have heard the gentleman that spoke (Will Galkins) several times before. He actually spoke at some of the youth advances that Clif and I both were saved through.
Anywho...the last time I heard him speak was like five years ago. And he only had one child at that time. He now has five.
Before I go any further, I have to tell you guys this. Clif and I of course have been talking and dreaming of more children. We have been discussing a name that we want to use if God were to bless us with another baby girl. The name that we have been talking about, it's not because we have heard the name other's strickly because of the meaning. =) I love it.
At the beginning of the service, Will introduced his family. His middle child's name, Lilly. I don't remember his oldest girls name, or either of the boys...but the youngest girls name was...well, I can't tell you. =) But it was the name that we've been talking about for a girl. Then he turned and introduced his partners and their children...and referred to their children as "beans". That was it. I was sold...and so was Clif. If we have another baby girl, we already know her name.
=) On to other subjects... I had lunch with a new friend today. "K". It was a really really good time. I enjoyed it, and can't wait to do it again! It's so nice to have something to do on my lunch break, and have someone to talk to that can halfway relate to what I'm going through.
Don't get me wrong....I LOVE my "old" friends, but I think that making new ones is really good for me. And that's something that I used not to do very well...
So, "K" if you're reading this...I really enjoyed our time. And I am so thankful that God brought you and your hubby into our lives.
Hope everyone is having a fantastic week. And for those of you that struggle to keep your chin up from time to time (like me), remember... TRUST, oh and... Let go, and let God. =)

I love when it seems as if God is handing us a sign---so now I am stuck here wondering if our next baby girl's names are the same, as it's been chosen for it's meaning. I'll put mine out there---Eliana Grace. (He has answered with grace)

Lots of love to you. xxx

You know...I'm being told to TRUST like you wouldn't believe.

Talk about signs. Look how you ended your post.

Seriously...He's telling me something.

I have names for Matthew's brother or sad is it that I am afraid to use them because I'm afraid I'll never get to use them?

Can you see why I am being told to Trust?

Lilly is the most beautiful girl's name. You have great taste in names, so I know the other name you have chosen will be beautiful, too! If we had been blessed with another girl, I wanted to name her Grace. It has a beautiful meaning, too.

Before I even got pregnant again, I had another little boy's name picked out that I knew I had to use(it wasn't Mingo!!) and I finally got my hubs to agree on the name! Yay!
