Faith

FAITH-the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).  I recall learning this definition as a child and it seemed so simple. I also recall the infamous illustration of a mustard seed and thought “piece of cake.” All I need is faith the size of a mustard seed (which is really small) and I’m set for life in the faith department.

Little did I know that as an adult my faith would be challenged time, after time, after time, in an area that seemed so SIMPLE. A husband and wife come together and a child is born right. WRONG!!

Although we now have three beautiful children the faith walk is not over.  Everyday we all must walk by faith (parents and non parents).  If you are believing God for a child take it from me-you never know how long it will take to have a child/ren.  You don’t know what you will have to go through to get them here.  You don’t know what conditions they will have once they get here. You don’t know what they will develop along the way after they are here.  Are you ready?  Are you ready for yet another faith walk?  Begin praying, fasting and believing now for the best possible outcome.  I understand why many parents pray for their children everyday before they leave the home.  I understand why parents pray for their children every night before they go to sleep.  We never know what tomorrow holds.  Thus, I’m glad I know who holds tomorrow.  I’m praying for you.  I’m praying for your situation. I’m praying for your children. Please do the same for me and mine.  And remember, without FAITH it is impossible to please God.

A Father’s Love

Happy Father’s Day!  Today is filled with love and laughter in many households. However many children will never utter the words Happy Father’s Day and many men who would make good fathers will never hear those words.  There is no love like a father’s love. Although men don’t sit and talk about it, there is such joy in being a father and many good men are waiting to experience that joy. Today I salute all the fathers and pray for those men who are still waiting to experience fatherhood. 

I thank God for allowing me to bond with my father for 38 years!! I love the relationship he had with my first born son and hate that my twin boys wont be able to meet him. Missing you dad!! I know you are in a better place.

Almost Here

I can’t believe it.  Our little guys are almost here.  On Tuesday, June 3rd, I will be 37 weeks pregnant with twin boys.  I can hardly wait to meet them-Caleb and Kyle.  As happy as I am that they are almost here, I also have to admit I’m a bit nervous.  See it’s hard to believe that I will have a total of three boys after having three miscarriages.  This has been a very difficult journey not because of the physical toll of carry twins, but because of the mental reminder of my past.  Everyday I should wake up excited to be carrying twins, but that is not the case.  I wake up praying that there are still two heart beats. I keep cold water by my bedside so I can constantly feel the kicks every time I take a sip.  I hold my breath and say a prayer every time I get an ultrasound.  You may be saying hey what is wrong with being prayerful—-Nothing.  However 90% of my actions stem from the fear of my past.     But every day I am more hopeful.  I am constantly quoting the scripture, “I believe, Lord help my unbelief” Mark 9:24.  The closer we get to a full term pregnancy the happier I am.  I believe that soon and very soon I will be writing a post about my happy, healthy baby boys Caleb and Kyle.  Pray for me on this journey and I will do the same for you.
