Happier post.

I have not had much to write about over the last couple of days, but just couldn't stand for the sad post to be on top for any longer.

We really, really appreciate all the prayers going out for us. We certainly feel like God has been near, comforting us, encouraging us, and keeping us from sadness. I especially feel like all this could have been much worse. I'd say that I thought I was dealing with it well, except I do not ever deal well with trials, and so my only explanation for not dissolving every day into a pool of tears is that God is here with me, taking away all the sadness. I can rest knowing that God will use all of it to bring glory to his name.

Overall, I'd say in some ways we were actually encouraged last month, just to know that it is possible for me to get pregnant. And that maybe we won't have to pay a lot of money to have a baby.

I've been hearing this hymn play in my head a lot recently. I (sadly) don't spend lots of time these days memorizing scripture (though I really should) but songs have a way of creeping into my brain and sticking there, which I guess is the next best thing.

His Love Can Never Fail

1. I do not ask to see the way
My feet will have to tread;
But only that my soul may feed
Upon the living Bread.
'Tis better far that I should walk
By faith close to His side;
I may not know the way I go, But oh, I know my Guide.

His love can never fail, His love can never fail,
My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail.
My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail.

2. And if my feet would go astray,
They cannot, for I know
That Jesus guides my falt'ring steps,
As joyfully I go.
And tho' I may not see His face,
My faith is strong and clear,
That in each hour of sore distress
My Savior will be near.

3. I will not fear, tho' darkness come
Abroad o'er all the land,
If I may only feel the touch
Of His own loving hand.
And tho' I tremble when I think
How weak I am, and frail,
My soul is satisfied to know
His love can never fail.

I hadn't yet read sad post. I'm so, so sorry. You, precious soul (and Jeff too), will be in my prayers.
