thank you

I just wanted to say how thankful I am to all of you that have commented on my post below and also to those of you who have been praying for us. The power of prayer is amazing and we have really felt your prayers during this time. God has given me the strength and the attitude to get through this past week and a half and I really am thankful to him for that.

The last 10 days have been interesting and full of varying emotions from - 'totally lost it I can't speak' to 'calm, collected, at peace with God and his will for us' (praise God that this one has been the one I have experienced most).

This whole situation has taught us a few good but hard lessons. Thanks for praying for SP too as I think it can be so hard for the husband as the experience of early pregnancy - where you can't see or feel anything and you don't go through any of the physical changes the wife goes through - makes it not very tangible. He also had such a tough week at work last week and has been so stressed - he needs prayers for this too.

This week is going well and I am feeling pretty good, church prayed for us on Sunday night - we weren't there but we have since received emails, text messages and phone calls from our lovely church family sending love, prayers and support. This has been so nice, we feel very much loved and taken care of by our church.

If you get a minute here are a few prayer points:

- That God might be glorified through this whole experience.
- That we might continue to trust God and his will for us.
- Praise God that my body seems to be getting back to normal.
- That God may bless us with a healthy pregnancy and baby next time around and that it wouldn't be too long before that happens.

Thanks again to all of you for being so great!

Oh, Nixter. I feel so bad that I didn't notice your message below. I just figured out something was going on today. I have been distracted with sad business myself. I'm glad that you have felt God's presence so strongly. Love you.
