I'm putting in an order!!! :)

This is a Great Man.

His statement on returning for another season in 2008: (Yay!)

"I wouldn't come back if I didn't think we had a chance to win and that I was the very best person for the job," he said. "I wouldn't shortchange my family and I wouldn't come back if my wife and children were not for it."

But there is something else that must be emphasized, and it has little to do with football. The fame of winning a Super Bowl has given him a platform for faith. Not many coaches use it as he did. That, too, would be hard to let go.

"I look at this as a job," he said, "but I also look at it as a ministry ... I might not have as effective a ministry as I have right now."

The Lawrensons

These are pictures of Gwyneth. The second is her hand and her daddy's finger. She was born on January 8th, at 24 weeks and 5 days... just 4 days more mature then the little girl I am carrying inside me now.

This is a picture of Nate and his 25 year old wife, Tricia. Gwyneth is their new baby daughter.

Tricia was born with Cystic Fibrosis... and up until the discovery that she was pregnant, she was on a transplant list, praying for a match that would grant her a double lung transplant and save her life. After finding out about their pregnancy, Nate and Tricia opted to not have an abortion. A decision that the medical community discouraged and a decision which forced the removal of Tricia from the transplant list.

As Gwyneth grew... Tricia's lungs were inevitably compromised further by her growing uterus, and on Jan. 8th, her health had deteriorated so much, that she was placed on a ventilator and taken to surgery for a tracheotomy. It was the only way she would be able to continue to breathe. Subsequently, she was so unstable that doctors were forced to deliver baby Gwen prematurely.

Both Gwen and Tricia are doing ok for the moment. Nate is a worship leader at their church, and he has begged anyone who will take the time to pray for his wife and daughter... as well as spread the word that even more prayer is appreciated. He has a fantastic blog that can be found at:

Please take the time to read some or all of their story... leave them a comment of encouragement... or just let them know that you are praying. I promise you will be incredibly blessed by the faith that this family has.

Baby Bedding

I just got a fabulous Ebay deal on this set and I'm SOOO excited! The colors are exactly what I was looking for and couldn't find! Not TOO pink... not too cheesy... I've been drooling over this very expensive set for quite awhile... and suddenly this morning someone put a brand new set on Ebay at a great price! The best part: Eric said to me, "you better hurry up and get it before someone else buys it"!

I love my husband.

New Blog Address

Sorry to switch blog addresses on everyone... but a recent "issue" made me feel that it was necessary. These blogs are wonderful... but sometimes I do worry about the amount of information that we put out there for the world to see. I try to leave out too many details about exactly where we live, etc... but I'm sure if someone wanted to track us down based on what I have said... it could be done. And with a baby on the way... I'm even more cautious. Perhaps the time will come when this blog will be by invitation only... (some of you already received emails since at first I chose to do that)... but for now... we'll try this.

Hope everyone's still able to find us!!
