Psalm 57:1

Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me:
for my soul trusteth in thee:
yea, in the shadow of thy wings I will make my refuge,
until these calamities be overpast.

This is a verse that Mikayla's Aunt Laura shared with me and Joseph today, and I thought I'd share it as well. What an appropriate and wonderful verse it is. Of course it's not a "new" verse, but it's interesting the verses you can tend to overlook, and then when the time is right, it becomes precious to you. Thank you, Laura D!

I think you all know by now that I've officially had a miscarriage. In the morning I have a D&C scheduled @ Brownwood hospital at 6:15am. I'm SO thankful to be getting this done in such a timely manner. That is indeed an answer to prayer! Thank you all for your prayers and for the love shown to me (and my family) at this time. It's unreal to be shown kindness in so many ways. I'm in awe of how the Lord's been using others to help and encourage.

We're doing pretty good. Like my sweet mommy told me today, our babies are in God's hands. And Lord willing, someday we'll meet the ones we never got to meet on earth. The Lord does ALL things well and whatever He chooses is perfect. It's such a wondrous thing to be able to rest in that.

Hope you are all doing well. I appreciate so much the comments left on my previous post. Good night, dear ladies.

"Although the fig tree shall not blossom...yet I will rejoice in the LORD." As I sit here crying and mourning the loss of my tiny baby grand, I rejoice in our God, who does all things well. Blessed be the name of the Lord. May our dear God grace you as never before, and may you glorify Him. How I love you and Joseph and Miggy and our baby.

My dear friend,
I have been in much prayer for you and your dear family. I'll continue to pray. My parents also send their regards and wanted me to let you know that they also will keep praying for you and Jody.

May the Lord continue to give you much grace and peace throughout this process of mourning and healing. Indeed, the knowledge that our children are with the Lord is a GREAT comfort. One day we will get to meet them face to face and worship Christ together with them!!!
Love you!
