Walker family updates

I know it's been forever since I posted something personal. I have been dealing with morning sickness that lasts all day and fatigue that never goes away, no matter how much rest I am able to get! Oh, the joys of bringing a new life into the world! Truth be told, I wouldn't trade it for anything, but it has been a rough several weeks.

I am officially at the end of my first trimester. Little baby Walker is growing like crazy and soon, I'll be able to feel him/her playing around inside of me.

At ten weeks(I'm twelve now) I had my first sonogram!!! It's so awesome to see that tiny life inside of me, the heart beating so fast, the teeny arms and legs moving around!!! What a miracle this being pregnant is!!! The Lord is amazing in His creations, especially in His creation of human life! I am so blessed to be able to be a mother again and experience all of this wonder for the third time!!!! It isn't always fun or easy, as I've found out the hard way these past 8 weeks, but what a joy it is to know that with the Lord's blessings and grace, I will hold my little one at the end of all this hard work. Children truly are "an heritage of the Lord" and a blessing to be treasured always.

On other fronts, my parent will be getting back from the mission field in two weeks! It's been two and a half months since they left this time and I'm certainly looking forward to having them around again!

My younger brother has been serving in Iraq for the past four and a half months. He's coming home today!!!! I'm so excited and so very thankful that the Lord was merciful to him and kept him safe through it all. I'm looking forward to giving him a HUGE hug to welcome him home!

My husband's little brother is headed back to the war on Monday. Please pray for him if you think of it. David will be over there until next October. He's been home for the last two weeks, but it's the last time we'll see him until he comes home again. Things are so dangerous for him! Please pray for his safety and the Lord's protection over him through this next year.

Well, this is about all the time I have for right now. I hope to be able to post more often, but I never know what will happen around here! I'll do my best to keep everyone up to date with the goings-on of the Walker family!

Rebekah, I praise the Lord for the little life inside of you! :) I'm sorry about your sickness, extreme fatigue, etc. :( If I lived closer, I'd love to help out by watching Ryan for a few hours while you got rest.

Yay for your parents coming soon and Stephen coming home! what a blessing.

Will be in prayer for your bro-in-law- tough situation. I can't imagine.
