this week...

So, this week has been interesting.

First, we are getting ready for our annual benefit dinner. Lots of work! I think I have already put in my 20 hrs and it is only Wednesday.

Second, I have spent a wonderful time with our friends the G's (www.sharonandadam.com). Both our husbands are away, and they just added the 3rd child to their family 2 1/2 weeks ago. What fun has it been to be with a family full of children!! It has also assisted me in my discernment of our family. I have always had "my plan", and just hoped God would fit in.

Yet, as our desire for a family grows, we must look into other options. So, this week has taught me that babies are wonderful and beautiful, but older children have much to offer and bring so much love to a family too! Even more to think about!

Please pray for us as we discern how God is leading us.

Prayers for your continued discernment. Sometimes it is easy to surrender to God's will, especially when it aligns with your own. But when He has other plans, esp. those you never thought of, it makes it harder to trust and more complicated to discern! Hope the benefit goes well, I don't think we'll be able to go this year.

Prayers for you both... I have my own crosses but absolutely cannot imagine the pain of infertility and repeated miscarriage. Hang in there! I can't wait to see what God has in store for you.
