Faithful and Steadfast

Oh my! My DH is so goofy with the link to the short bus he posted below. Lol! It's true, we are looking for a minivan these days. If anyone happens across one at a cheap price, let us know! We are excited though because some baby things are already showing up around here! We already have two car seats, a high chair, countless preemie/newborn/baby clothes, and it looks like the possibility of two cribs! Many thanks to those of you who have given us those items. We really appreciate it!

I'm also excited because my good friend, Courtney, was in town this weekend and she completely redesigned our blog header! So exciting! She even scanned the babies ultrasound pictures with her phone, uploaded them to her computer, tinted them, and then put them in order: Baby A, Baby B, Baby C, Baby D. If you have a chance, take a look at it! I think it makes our blog so much more fun!

What I especially like about the header is the Bible verse that is listed. It's not just some random verse we yanked out of the Bible and threw up there. The verse talks about the Lord's steadfast love and faithfulness to all generations. It means so much to me, not only because I'm working on the entire next generation of Ishums right now, but also because my name, Rebecca, means Faithful and Steadfast. It's like God decided to set it up long ago that my name would be a daily reminder of His character. Do you know how many times a day I say my name? Well, let's just put it this way. I'm first on the phone where I work and every time I pick it up, I identify myself. And that's just me saying my name. If I figure in all the times everyone else says my name per day...Wow! It was a pretty neat moment when I realized the parallel. :) God is good even when we have no idea how this is all going to work out!
