Simon's Heartbeat ~ our gift today!

Today we heard Simon's heartbeat.  With each beat Simon is fighting and saying, "I'm in here!"  I am so thankful for each day we have with Simon.  Living in the moment is pretty hard for me, but Simon is teaching me to enjoy and give thanks each minute as tomorrow is not certain.  Thank you, God, for allowing us to hear Simon's heartbeat today.  Tears of joy and relief streamed down my face as I heard each sweet beat.  It was such a gift.  Enjoy these few verses which are encouragement for me today.  The video of his heartbeat is also below (features my bump too!).

Matthew 6:34
34 “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Psalm 118:24
24 This is the day that the Lord has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it


Isaiah 41:13
13 For I, the Lord your God,
    hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
    I am the one who helps you."

Isaiah 12:2
“Behold, God is my salvation;
    I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God[a] is my strength and my song,
    and he has become my salvation."

Philippians 4:6-7
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
