Cardboard Testimony

On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.  But go and learn what this means; 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but the sinners." (Mt. 9:13)

Then He said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well."  Luke 17:19

Does someone need a hug?

Remember on Elf when Buddy finds the raccoon on his trip to New York City?  
Buddy, "Does someone need a hug?".  
Racoon, "Rrrrrrrrrrr!"  

Well....this raccoon was not getting a hug!

Lex had a near death experience last night.  He got home from work at 1:20 am and found this beast of an animal in our garage.  We have a very old school garage with rafters and wood walls everywhere.  That thing was right over his head.  He thought it was Olly at first and then realized it was like 2x as big as Olly.   Our cat escaped death as well b/c he had been inside with me since 10:45.  If he'd been in the garage he'd probably have gotten punked by this raccoon.  The weird thing is that as soon as I pulled into the garage Olly came right to the door and we went in.  I closed the garage immediately since Olly was in.  That means the raccoon was already in the garage when I got home and was hanging out there until Lex discovered him.  More often then not, I will go to my car to put stuff in there for the next day or take out the trash.  I'm so glad I didn't go into the garage last night.  Who knows what could have happened.  This thing was HUGE!!!!!  It was so freaked out.  It couldn't figure out how to get down.  After scaring it with the flash from my camera and the garage door opening/closing we left it alone.  Olly was standing at the door trying to protect us from it.  He was doing this deep growl thingy that was hilarious.  I was like, "What are you going to do cat? You have no claws and that thing would cut your head off in one swipe with those claws!" It's claws were like 4 inches long!!

It didn't look like a raccoon at all, but a small bobcat.  I wish you could tell how big it was from the pics.

Lex got to feel Annerson move for the first time last night!!  It was such a special moment.  When I got home from work last night I told him that it would be any day now and he'd feel her.  I knew it was going to be really soon.  We were praying and he had his hands on my stomach and all of a sudden she moved.  I think she was giving him a high five! He got to feel it 3 or 4 times. Strong thumps against his hand!!   

We're 22 weeks today.  I'm growing a ton.  She's moving a lot more throughout the day and the pressure is intense down there after I've been at work for a few hours.  I love it.
