My Blessings

I am beyond grateful for these 3 precious blessings that God has given me. Although it is not the family that I envisioned for myself, these are the children that He knew I would carry within. . . And while I am beyond grateful for the gift that I was given, the gift that some may never have, I still mourn what I will never experience again. I know that the pain will get easier. I know that I will realize over time WHY this is my cross to carry in life. I know that HE and HE ALONE knows the reasons for this and I must fully trust in that. . .


  1. I was thinking about this the other day. I wanted to tell you that the best way you will get through this is to focus on all that you have instead of what you won't have. I think that if you focus on what you won't have in a few years you will kick yourself for not fully enjoying this time with ALL that you do have. They are beautiful and precious and just what God wanted you to have all along, right? I have to learn this lesson in a different way, but the same lesson. God has blessed me with four boys, even with all of the challenges that come with that. Some people don't even get what we have. I know you will do great and we will both eventually learn why we have been given what we have been given.
    Don't forget these scriptures:
    Jeremiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
    1 Corinthians 1:3 "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of ALL comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as he suffering of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows".
    You can do it!!!
