Let me 'Bee'

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer." Proverbs 9: 9-12

I’m meditating on this portion of Proverbs today. I’ve been trying to read one for my son but mama ends up learning a whole lot from them. I also pray these things over my son, that he may be seek wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One.

Today’s been interesting. The weather is lovely, I met a great friend for lunch, we went to a natural bakery (yum). I appreciate homemade bread. I ate a mozzarella Panini on organic spelt bread. It doesn’t get better than that! I bought a loaf to take home, let’s see if Zeke likes it. He surprised me the other day when I bought a ‘homemade’ (at Wal-Mart) white bread. He said if it’s not multigrain, he’s not into it. I said, ‘glory!’ Me and my house will not eat white bread!

I also spoke to several Brazilian friends today. I should see childhood friends next month, I’m looking forward to that.

This week has been a good one when it comes to exercise. I’m not killing myself – I have the tendency to overdo my walks and my child is getting heavier, so the last thing I need is to strain my bones or muscles – but I’m staying active.

I’ve been working on my mental well-being as well. For 7 months people have been poking me, looking for something wrong to talk about when it comes to my pregnancy. I try my best not to be a downer. I don’t deny sickness and disease but I do focus on God’s healing power and when it comes to my own life, I focus on ‘this too shall pass.’ I cultivate gratitude as an attitude, so you can’t get me to join you talking about all the possible side effects that a woman can have during pregnancy. Sometimes words to hurt: I don’t want to be called fat (trust me, I've been called fat a couple of times), I don’t want to know about horror stories and I don’t care how much your baby bothered you with the kicking. Again, let me enjoy my experience please! I’m sure all of this is increasing my faith in God cause every time I hear some odd comment I go against it in the name of Jesus. I also try to be sure not to repeat bad things to others when they get pregnant. Prayer is the best thing I can get, not unsolicited advice but good prayer that’s prayed in the name of Jesus.
