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

She's Here!!!

Yesterday I unexpectedly went into labor and delivered a healthy baby girl!!!
She was born at 5:04 p.m, August 7, 2007.
She was 6 lbs. 1 1/2 oz. and 19 3/4" long.

I will post pictures soon and a birth story!!!

Although she was 4 weeks early, she is healthy and has not had any breathing difficulties. Please pray that she will get the hang of nursing.

I am very thankful for the safe delivery and I thank each one of you for your continued prayers!
