I Love Those Dear Hearts...

So, once again we are overcoming a miscarriage. We were so very excited this time. I almost wonder if I may have been anticipating it more than any of the others!

So hormones are everywhere. The church has been pouring food into our house. They have been offering up prayers, offering to help with the boys, supporting my tired husband, staying at the house in the middle of the night while we were in the ER. I am overwhelmed and even feeling guilty for not offering similar help to others who have gone through this. I had no idea.

So, thank you everyone. We praise God for his amazing goodness, that seen in all of you. May He continue to bless you so you can continue His good and loving work, shining His light!

Oh, Amanda, I'm so sorry. That's such a hard thing to go through. Know that I will be showering you in prayers. We love you and pray for healing physically and emotionally.

It really IS something-else-again to find yourself on the receiving end of Christians' overwhelming generosity, isn't it? I, too, have experienced guilt over not only 'consuming' these good people's resources, but also over not having performed similarly on other occasions when I could have.

Each time this occurs it reinforces my determination to proactively identify opportunities to be a tangible blessing to as many as I/we can! :)

One way this has manifested for us is that I often cook more than necessary so that I can either freeze some to give away later, or search out someone who could benefit from the blessing right now.... It's a work in progress.

Meanwhile, we just praise God that He blesses His people so richly, often through others of His people! I'm thankful for the overflow of affection you are receiving!!! I pray it helps heal your mind, heart, and body.

Amanda,
I'm just catching up on your blog and am sorry to not have responded sooner. I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm excited to read about you thinking about adopting and will be praying about that as well.
Your boys are getting big and it looks like they had fun sledding!
Sending you love and hugs!
