10 MONTHS...

Today marks 10 months of waiting- WOW! As I have struggled lately, I have had constant reminders that we are NOT walking this path alone. I am thankful for that because...this is a hard path to follow at times! When things don't go the way I want or think they should I tend to start looking for an easier "better" way. I start looking for better solutions to what we want. I keep reminding myself that this path was not necessarily a path that we chose but was chosen for us. We are not walking it alone but are carried through most of it! Do you remember the footprints poem? I feel like that is us right now...we are being carried through this most difficult waiting part! I do love getting those gentle reminders that the path we are on is the right one. Like sitting in Church yesterday and hearing the sermon knowing God planned that just for us! SO..even though my heart aches for our little guy, I know that God's plan is going to be wonderful and we will be so blessed by it.

Have a blessed day~


One night a man had a dream. He was walking along the beach with the Lord and across the sky flashed scenes from his life. In each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one made by him, and the other by the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the worst times in his life.
This bothered him very much, so he asked the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I've noticed that during times of trouble, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why you left me when I needed you the most."
The Lord answered, "My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial, when you see only one set of footprints, that's when I was carrying you."
