Thirteen Weeks

Filed in PersonalTags: Family, Fatherhood, Photos

As of today, we are at thirteen weeks; we are now into the second trimester!

The nausea of the first trimester seems mostly to have passed, though it still returns on occasion - possibly due to the prenatal vitamins. Not too many esoteric food cravings so far, either. Though, I did have the pleasure last night of making a grocery-store run at 9:30 in search of a cream cheese danish - thankfully, Entenmann's makes something that fits the bill, that I was able to find.

Please tell Steph how great she continues to look:

Now, we begin looking forward to our first ultrasound and finding out the gender of our baby - though, Steph is convinced we're having a L'il Chip!

Today´s reading:
OT: Jeremiah 37-38
NT: I Timothy 6
Ps: Psalm 89:38-52
Pr: Proverbs 25:28

Today´s notable verse:

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

I Timothy 6:6 (NIV)

What an eloquent statement of the Christian worldview: constantly pursuing the betterment of one's character, while always being content with one's circumstances. In so doing, we allow God to work through us freely, and not only thus participate in the advancement of His kingdom here on earth, but store up eternal reward for ourselves. Love not the pursuit of money, but the pursuit of the character of God.
