Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

My First Visit to My Midwife

I am so elated right now! For the first time I heard the baby's heartbeat! God is so good!
I am greatly anticipating the day that I get to hold this new little one. I know the baby will be here in the blink of an eye, but I am soooo anxious!

Little fingers,
little toes,
little mouth,
little nose!

The tiniest cry you've ever heard.
Such peaceful sleep,
more powerful than words.

This little being sized just right,
fits in you arms,
So hold him tight.

God gives precious gifts,
with arms of love,
and hands them to us
from Heaven Above!

I am so amazed at the wonderful gifts that our children are to us. It amazes me, still, that God has chosen to bless me in such a way!
