So this post is a little out of the ordinary, I’m going to warn you now that this post has absolutely nothing to do with deals. So you might just want to skip it. This is mainly just me sharing the craziness of my day.
I don’t write personal stories very often, but to me this has always been a personal blog. I started this site to share deals with Friends and Family Members and I still feel like all of my amazing readers are Friends and Family. I love getting up each morning to share deals with all of you, and I love celebrating with you as you have great shopping trips, and even sharing in your frustrations when trips don’t go as planned.
I had every intention of writing a different kind of a post this afternoon but, well I know now that God had a different plan.
We found out a few months ago that our Third Child was on it’s way! For those of you who haven’t been following my site very long we have a 3 Year Old and an (Almost) 2 year old. Both are amazing sweet kids that we love so much. This morning we went for our 19 week Ultrasound, the post I planned on writing would be to announce this and share the gender of the baby. Without sharing too many details I want to share my heart with you because, well that’s about all I can think about right now. We learned this morning that our baby no longer has a heartbeat. I don’t know too many details yet but we do know that this is Gods Plan and that His ways are so much higher than ours. I want to ask you guys to pray for our family the next few days. Our sweet little baby will be born tomorrow a few months earlier than we had planned, but I know it’s Gods perfect timing.
I have an amazing team of ladies that are going to be helping me with the blog the next few days, so don’t worry, things around here won’t change much, but I just couldn’t go on tonight without sharing our day with you. I know so many of you are going through tough times right now weather it’s financially, in a marriage, sickness, family members and so much more. I wanted to share some things that have filled my mind today. Honestly I typically try to make sure things have a “Theme” or Go Together when I post them on the site, but these are just some of my random comforts from today.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1,26
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know [this] very well. Psalm 139:13-14
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
From: Bring the Rain by Mercy Me (This is just the part running through my head)
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It’s never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there’ll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain
From Blessings by Laura Story:
‘Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
