completely identify with you. Been going through something similar myself. :) Your in my prayers. :)
Ooooo ok where on earth is an apple orchid!!!! and can I go! That be an incredible spot to do pictures too ;-) Ive never been to one, but would love too.Hope you feel better soon.I dont have the weight to loose, but Ive been in the same state of mind you have been... and know how hard it is.We have to wait right now too... Not because of health reasons.. but because of jobless health insurance reasons.. and part of me wants to think, well the Lord will provide regardless! But at the same time I know we are taught to be wise... and use wisdom... and I know during this time at City of Refuge we should really set aside time to work on our marriage... our future ministry... and not focus so much on having more babies :) - as much as Id want too... Its never fun or easy to wait.Hang in there!Let me know if you ever want to just get out and let the boys go bananas :)Heres some scripture I clung to today..."Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Look on my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins... Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, LORD, is in you" -Psalm 25:16-21Its on my blog side bar too, I turn to it a lot.
I love how honest you always are! Hang in there! You're a machine! ;)
Uhm ... it should be illegal to look that fantastic. Especially on a Wednesday.Praying for you! I really want to get pregnant again, too, and I also have to wait. Not so much for weight or health reasons, but the insurance plan I'm on doesn't include maternity care. We've got to wait until the beginning of the year. Which I know is not a big deal, but it is for me.Here's the verse I cling to:Psalm 37:3-4Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.Blessings!
Thank y'all so much for your words of encouragement and scriptures. Really encouraged me.
Candra, don't give up! I know what you mean about eating less=grouchy. I've put on a few pounds since getting married, and then being home in the States didn't help. I weigh more now than I ever have, but I'm working on it with the help of an AMAZING book my friend lent me--The New Optimum Nutrition Bible. I'm eating much less than I was before but I'm never hungry and my mood is stable. I know you're a busy mom but you'll thank yourself. Jeeze, it looks like I've just written some cheesey advertisement for this book. I'm gonna stop now. Good luck!
