Prayers for Today

Well, as most of you know, this baby was quite stubborn for our last ultrasound therefore we will be redoing it today. Our appointment is this afternoon at 4:30 and we would really appreciate your prayers. We know that we will love this baby no matter how God has knitted him or her together but in all honesty we are hoping and praying for a healthy baby and good report.

I have been feeling very at peace lately. Despite the fact that my placenta is anterior, I have felt the baby moving quite a bit lately and that is reassuring and amazing. I have even browsed a few nursery bedding sets online. The thing is it only takes a moment of letting down my guard for that fear to begin to creep in. I have many chores to get done today and my sister in law is coming over with her little guy so the boys can all play and have lunch so my mind should be pretty busy today. The trouble is that often when I see those boys all playing together I am also reminded of the two boys who are not running along with them. Kind of bittersweet.

Anyway, thank you all for your prayers, you have no idea the peace they bring to us. We truly feel blanketed in your prayers and it is an amazing place to be. I am so grateful to experience the body of Christ as we have in such a tangible way. I will try to post an update when we get home, but again , we will likely eat out tonight since the doctors office is 45 minutes away and right before dinner time. So do not panic if it isn't until later in the evening! :-)

Keeping you in my prayers today and that the baby will be a little more cooperative today. God is watching over you and hearing the prayers. Hope the boys enjoy their playdate and you find peace within the day.

"I wanna sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath, here your heart beat
This love is so deep, it's more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it's overwhelming"
I don't know if you know this song, "The More I Seek You", but I thought of it when I read your blog today. I pray for your peace. Drink it in today. Looking forward to hearing the results of the ultrasound. Have a great day!
Blessings,
Christy

I will surely be praying for you. You don't know me but what God has used your words to uplift me. I found your website when I was looking for moms that have lost their little ones. My daughter Samantha went to be with Jesus almost 2 months ago. I was a day shy of 6 months. Thank you so much for being brave and sharing all that Jesus has done in your life.
