On my knees & praying....

I read Jenn's blog just about every day. I don't comment much because I am often too busy getting the girls out of things or feeling guilty about being on the computer so, I usually shut it down and go play with them. Today, I am SO grateful that God gives me the conviction to do just that. First, of all, let me say that I don't understand why the baby I am carrying is (so far)healthy, even though I worry(as I know I shouldn't) until every ultrasound is complete and things are said to be progressing normally. I don't understand why I have two healthy precious girls when others cannot even conceive or they lose their precious babies. I have been in both categories and I have to say that the pain of losing your child is undescribable and horrendous. It is a torturing pain that you never forget and you just pray that you will endure.

When I read Jenn's post this morning,(please read all of the following links to get a better understanding of what is going on with this family) I clicked on the link to Audrey Caroline, and tears poured out of my eyes and I could not breathe. Angies, the mother's, pain is so raw but her faith in her Lord is there. Unmistakably she is tired right now and she is hurting but she is holding on and all I can think right now is that I am SO happy that Jesus is holding her and that she knows that. I have been there. I do not wish to EVER visit that place again but right now if the Lord asks it of me, I will travel this road with anyone who needs me and if it should be this baby who HE in HIS all knowing will chooses to carry home to HIM, then I will have to walk the road again,myself. And thankfully, because of you and many others, we will have many awesome prayer warriors to hold us up.

Pray please and pray hard, pray on your KNEES for this mother who so desperately needs you to hold her up right now. Pray for all of those who are suffering in such agony. Please, I beg of you, to pray with all the faith you have. We are in the family of God to help and lift up one another so, let's do so.

May you be blessed today & always,

Love,

Julie
