Yesterday, I thought long and hard about the blessings in which the Lord has bestowed on me. In July of 2008, I had been on a journey. One that I spoke of in this blog post "I've been on a journey". I wrote about a journey I was having to the valley, the valley in which I was speaking of was a miscarriage. Our 10th child went to be with the Lord on July 7th, 2008.
When thinking of those valley days I thought of the deep pain and loss that I felt. And how I wondered if the Lord would ever see fit to bless us with another child. In the days/months that followed the Lord spoke peace and comfort to my soul, and carried me as the healing took place. I think of our baby often who is now in the arms of our Lord. One day we will see our baby face to face. I will be able to hold our baby in my arms just as I have my other children...what a glorious day that will be!
Now, today I sit with 2 precious girls on my lap, and my heart is filled with gratitude to our Lord for His wonderful gifts! For I am unworthy of such blessings....Praise the Lord for His love!
But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.
Last year Arthur and I attended the Baby Conference in San Antonio, TX put on by Vision Forum Ministries. Doug Phillips held a session on miscarriage and it was wonderful and very encouraging. If you would like to hear Doug speak on this topic he has a CD available, you can purchase it HERE.
