Special Requests...

My weekend has been pretty boring. I actually made it to church today for the first time in several weeks. I've been sulking, and I've been mad at God for making me go through this valley (that at times never seems to end). I realized something while I was sitting in the sermon. I had channeled my anger at the wrong person. I should be angry with Satan who has attacked this battle against my life, my marriage, my whole being. My preacher also stated that it wasn't the circumstances that would make or break a Christian. It was your REACTION to circumstances that would determine how strong your faith is. So, I'm fighting back...Satan is fleeing me and God is surrounding me with his love and protection.

One of our fellow bloggers is experiencing her first miscarriage and could really use our prayers and encouragement. Please visit Amanda at http://waitinginline.blogspot.com and send her some support. If you have experienced a miscarriage yourself, you know first hand the heartache that she is experiencing right now. You could perhaps use your experience to offer her some comfort. If you haven't had a miscarriage, then she could use your prayers. My heart really aches for her and her family as she is going through this time. I know all too well the emptiness she is feeling as I have had 2 miscarriages within the last 4 years.

Also, please see Rebecca at http://wishinghopingandpraying.blogspot.com. I convinced her this blog was much better than a previous blog we were on together because of the encouragement and prayers I have received from this site. Rebecca is ending her 2ww and could also use some optimism from those of us who are privileged to be on this infertility roller coaster...together. I have found that it was worse when I felt alone.

Elaine,
This is Pam I got your blog from Deidre hope it's ok that I visited, Just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you and K. I first hand that I don't know what you are going through but God tells us as sisters in Christ to bear one anothers burdens. My younger sister when through 2 miscarriages, one time the baby didn't form, and she had a baby boy that was stillborn, and a baby girl that died a few hours after bith, then she now has a son who is 9 years old, but he was delivered at 6 months. So through her I have seen the pain all this brings. As hard as it is sometimes to understand we just have to have faith in GOD that he has everything under control. I hope to get to know you better at Bible Study.
Pam
