God's Plans

Let me just start off by saying that our family believes with every ounce of who we are that God's plans far outweigh what our human minds can possibly fathom.  We do not always understand His ways~but trust Him fully to fulfill the purpose He has for each and every one of our lives.

Each day, each moment of our lives is just a brush stroke of the picture He is painting.  How awesome to watch things unfold and see just how God works, through trials and blessings.  Through what He gives and what He takes away.

Our sweet baby is resting in the amazing arms of Jesus tonight.  I went for an ultra-sound this afternoon and the baby did not have a heartbeat.  I am supposed to be 11 weeks + 2 days but the baby only measured 8 weeks.  I am scheduled to have a D & C tomorrow morning at 7:15.  Please pray that there are no complications and that God's hands will be with the Doctor.  The same Doctor that has delivered all 5 of our precious boys will be doing the procedure. I am so thankful for an amazing, Christian Doctor.  We love him more than words could ever say. 

We are very sad that I have miscarried, but we know God is in control of ALL things.  We feel so blessed beyond measure in all things that He has given~and even in the things He has taken away.  We have an amazing hope in God's plan and HE gives us a peace that passes all understanding. 

All of my life,
In every season,
You are still God, I have a reason to sing.
I have a reason to worship.

Praying for you and your family today!

I know the feelings that you are going through today as I had those same feelings 11 years ago this month. I have a baby waiting for me as well in heaven that was 11 weeks and 3 days old when I miscarried. I didn't have to go through with a D&C. I am so thankful to God for that time in my life. It was difficult to get through but at the same time it didn't take me long to get pregnant again, instead of having a baby the following March, I had Timothy the following September.

God is with you!
