Adding on :)

Wow, has it really been almost three months since I updated this!? Definitely not as on top of this Blog as I would like to be :)
Well things in the Worth world are great! :)  God has continued to prove His faithfulness to us over the last few months. The new year has brought with it many joys and challenges. Mark's new job is going very well. He is enjoying it, and is continuing to learn more about technology (Our computer has become his guinea pig for testing out new things!). There have been discouraging days since he began in January,but all in all he is thankful for the ability to learn a new skill!
Substitute Teaching has really picked up for me. I usually have a job 4 out of 5 days a week! God has been so good! It was discouraging at first because  it took me a while to get things rolling. However, now I am enjoying subbing and the opportunity to be in a variety of classrooms :).
Not only did we switch "Careers" in January, but we began expanding our family :). We officially found out on February 3rd that Baby Worth was on the way!!! Many of you ladies understand the thoughts and emotions racing through you the moment you see a positive test result! I couldn't believe it! Although, I had my suspicions before that day, it still was thrilling! When I finally KNEW I still had conflicting emotions. For those of you who don't know. God blessed us with a child in the Fall, but His will was not for us to keep that little one. Through the heartache of losing a child, God taught us that we needed  to cling to each other and to HIM! He was faithful in showing us love and giving us strength through the storm!
So lets just say finding out less than 3 months later that I was again expecting, brought worry and joy. Could I really get excited for this Little One? Did God have another agenda than I did?  It has been a few months since we first found out the joyous news!! Mark and I are happy to announce, the pregnancy is going well so far!! I am 16 weeks TODAY!!! :) We heard the baby's heartbeat a few weeks ago. A beating little heart, how precious!  It's incredible and unreal to think that there is a little person growing inside of me.We are sure God has a plan for this little one too! We are looking forward  to meeting him...I mean her....actually it's going to be a SURPRISE! We hope and pray that the Lord will allow us to bring this child into the world. However, losing our first one is definitely a reminder that life doesn't always go as planned, but we can be sure God is sovereign in all situations! The Lord already knows the days planned out for baby Worth, and we are looking forward to parenting our blessing from above!!
Please be in prayer for us as we prepare for parenthood. Mark's job is pretty stable at the moment, and his healthcare is great. Those are two big blessings in the light of  many doctors appointments and future baby expenses. I however, need to find another job for the summer. I need a full-time job in order to help us meet our financial needs each month. Also, after the baby is born I will have to go back to work Substitute Teaching or doing something else. We would love if I could stay home, but financially we can't afford to do so.
God continually reminds us that He provides what we need, when we need it! HE is big, and we are looking forward to seeing His provisions in the coming months!

We'll hopefully be updating the blog more often...and letting those near and far from us know how our little family is doing!

Blessings!
Katie & Mark
