I would satisfy you...

IF my people would listen to me, IF Israel would follow my ways... I would satisfy you.
Ps 81:13&16b

At first when I read this Psalm, it stuck out to me that "I would satisfy you" and I pondered on that asking the Lord to satisfy me. Then I went back and reread it, realizing it is saying He would satisfy me. Wait, why would? Why not now?

Because our satisfaction is dependent on us. If we listen to Him (His word), if we follow His ways (in His word)... we would be satisfied.

I confess I am not satisfied, but I am not always listening, I am not always following His ways. But when I have, oh it is sweet.

Taste and see that the LORD is good... Ps 34:8a

It's time...

For an update.

It's been way too long hasn't it? I apologize!

Some may know, we are expecting a little blessing in our lives. Due 13 July (one month from me!)... so for now I'm 14 weeks along... and definitely feeling pregnant. Between random food cravings/aversions, lightheadedness and the joy of morning sickness :) -- O yes, not to mention tired (ability to sleep for 12 hours), and headaches. But I've been promised that it'll all be worth it... in 26 weeks (ish).
A preview of our little one at 13 weeks. It'll be another 7 weeks before we get another ultrasound, as well as the infamous GENDER determination.

I suppose that is the biggest piece of news for now... More to come later!

11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. 12 I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds. Ps 77: 11-12
