The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Update and a request for prayer

Well it has been a while for me..... honestly I just havent either had time or just not in the bloggin mood :( I have been keeping up and still reading all of yours though!! Sam has been busy playing fall ball and recently this Labor Day weekend getting over double ear infections and some kinda viral something. It was yuck and SCARY, his fever reached 104.5 and it has never been that high before. I was in panic mode, I just knew he had the flu but he tested negative for that thank goodness!! There is just so many cooties (as Joy would say) goin around for it to be so early in the school year. So anyways he is much better now after about 3 days of it.
We did enjoy watching the most AWESOME BAMA football game Sat. it was a little nerve racking but a great game.... ROLL TIDE! No pics of Sam in his jersey since he was sick but we'll get those next time!!
I have also been busy getting ready for AWANA's which starts tonight at our church and I am teaching Cubbies (3-5 year olds) with a friend. Gonna be lots of fun. Chad and I painted the Cubbie room and got everything ready to go. Will take pics of the room and share I think it turned out really CUTE!! Sam is excited to move up to SPARKS!! My baby is just growing TOO fast!

As far as us and the fertility issues, we are just in constant prayer right now. Waiting to see how a medication is gonna work before we do anymore IUI's. Dont have another appointment to be rechecked untill DECEMBER :( It makes me so sad to even think about another year has almost passed us by and still NO pregnancy!! Im still faithful and know my GOD will provide. It was amazing when I went to the Beth Moore event a couple of weeks ago it was just like God was speaking right to me.... Jennifer be patient, be faithful, rely only on me, and I will give you the "Desires of your heart" Her topic was Psalms 37:4. It was just an AWESOME time and I needed to hear every single word that she said!! So, I so appreciate all prayers, it would just be so AWESOME if it just happend.... without any extra help between now and our visit back to the Dr. in December.

Last on a very sad note I recieved some very shocking SAD news yesterday. Tim Nash whom I have known since the 7th grade, only 31 years old passed away. Although I have not seen him in quite some time he is just one of those people you never forget!! He is leaving behind a wife and 2 little girls under the age of 4. Oh how they need our prayers, I ask you to join in with me and just pray that God will guide them through this very tough time. I have heard they think it was a heart attack, which is just so scary, he was just too young! We must always remember God has a plan and reason for everything we are never guranteed tomorrow here and we must treasure each and every day with our loved ones!

Oh and Laura, I know you read... thanks for "brightening" me up yesterday!! I am lovin my hair :)

Just added a new song to my playlist Lay em' down by Needtobreathe check it out, its the first song on my playlist.... I am lovin it!!
