I'm the One.....

I am the one that has a miscarriage that lasts 41/2 months to complete, I am the one that has a son that gets cancer, only 600 cases in a year and we are one of the 600, I am the one that has two positive pregnancy tests last week now having some bleeding and another test taken and it shows negative......what is going on?????????? I do not know!!!!!!! Possibilities are... the baby did not implant. Now the waiting game again or rather I should say an opportunity for patience and then I will get experience and then comes hope! Of course we are disappointed but once again trusting the Lord knows what we need and when. It seems the phrase "thy will be done" is getting said alot more, it should be said all the time but its sometimes hard, isn't it? I 'll keep you posted when something changes, now we just wait and see what happens.

Now....the pictures tell what we have been up to over the weekend! We went to my dad's in Hot Springs Ar., on Friday and we have returned back home this morning! We have not been there since Joel and Josiah were 9 months old, so it was long over due! My dad and Shirley were so hospitable with wonderful meals, snacks and great fun on the lake. They have a house right on Lake Hamilton. The children were in the water constantly. Josiah was so brave to swim all around with his life jacket on, this was his first time and he did great! The bigger ones had a great time tubing, knee boarding and wake boarding. My dad had a boat full and pulling some and the the big guys had his other boat full and pulling another load! I would see one boat zip by and then here comes the other one! To me some of the things they were doing looked rather dangerous but they said it was sooooooo fun and the faster you went the greater crash opportunity you had! Caleb and Daniel really got the wake boarding down really well. Later in the evening last night my dad's neighbor took them out in this high powered boat and they were zipping back and forth till almost dark, Micah had to get a flash light and wave them to come in out on the dock. We enjoyed the time with my dad and Shirley! He was so excited we came, it was kinda spur of the moment! The four older ones also had the opportunity to play at their church on Sunday, they did a great job and the congregation gave them a standing ovation! I had to brag about that:) We are thankful too for safety and the van working well. we got up and we were on the road going there and coming home at 3:00 AM because of the heat, so most everyone slept. Now we are home and getting regrouped, and I am feeling tired so I might have to sneak a nap in! The one picture with Bethany, Caleb and my dad, I took on their dock, their house is in the background so you can see how they live right on the lake!!

Thanks for all the wonderful and encouraging words about the pregnancy, all I can say is the Lord knows and cares and he will once again see us through.

Mrs. Morris,

I have read this post over and over and just can't believe what I am reading. A miscarriage has never seemed so real to me. I guess it's so hard for me to think that it JUST read positive while I was there and now it's negative? How can that be? :(

I am praying for you!

"The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the hornof my salvation, my stronghold."
Psalm 18:2

"Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning."
Psalm 30:5

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
Psalm 73:26

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
Revelation 21:4

Love you!

Looks like ya'll had a marvelous time!
I am praying for you! Here's a quote that's encouraged me lately: "God is too good to be unkind. He is too wise to be confused. If I cannot trace His hand, I can always trust His heart." C.H. Spurgeon

Okay, sorry, another quote. But this one has to do with your saying some of what your youngsters were doing looked dangerous. I just read this and it reminded me of what you said. "Boys [should be] inured from childhood to trifling risks and slight dangers of every possible description, such as tumbling into ponds and off of trees, etc., in order to strengthen their nervous system... They ought to practice leaping off heights into deep water. They ought never to hesitate to cross a stream over a narrow unsafe plank for fear of a ducking. They ought never to decline to climb up a tree, to pull fruit merely because there is a possibility of their falling off and breaking their necks. I firmly believe that boys were intended to encounter all kinds of risks, in order to prepare them to meet and grapple with risks and dangers incident to man’s career with cool, cautious self-possession..." —R.M. Ballantyne, The Gorilla Hunters
I'm praying for ya'll and hope you have a blessed evening!

Your Lake Pictures look like lots of fun. They bring back memories of our California trip. Swimming sounds refreshing in this Oklahoma heat wave were having.

Thinking of you!
