So many of you have email and even a few commented because of the the comment I left at Bring the Rain.... and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank each and every one of you for sharing your stories with me and for praying for us- sharing again with me the hope we have in Christ. When I got online this morning I was humbled beyond measure at all the people that had stopped by my blog, and took the time to email, leave a comment and even those that didn't. I never imagined in my blogging so many would care.
I want to share with you that we are doing better. We have re-plugged in to a local church. We attended there for about a year- we have been welcomed back with open arms and loving hearts. God will heal all our wounds that have been there recently God will heal in His time. We are in His care. Ultimately this was His child, on loan to us- we will meet this little one when we step into Glory. And until then the little one is safe in the arms of Jesus. I have only one photo of the little miracle, taken probably days before we lost him or her.
We are back to homeschooling full time again. Most of September was half days. I just didn't have the strength to do it all. I bled for over 2 weeks, had 2 emergency trips to the ER complete with 5 bags of fluid (grand total) , paperwork was drawn up for a transfusion but one never came to pass. I know there was a time where Frank was concerned he was losing me too- it was a frightening time for us. Arianna is back to a volunteer schedule once a week, Micah just began his violin lessons yesterday and we are busy.
Frank and I are doing better as well. That initial reaction to him was frightening to me. We are working diligently at not pushing each other away. In fact we made a faith choice to continue to trust God for our family size and needs despite the miscarriage. I know I am still scared, about losing another, but I know God is bigger than my fear.
Life goes on out here in the middle of nowhere, a Marine goes back to work, we fall back into school and feeding horses and day to day chores- and we thank you. each of you. for all your kind words and reminders in Scripture. God Bless you.
