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

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding

First of all let me start by saying if you have not read "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers.... you so need to!! It is the best book evah!!!!!!! I am so thankful for my sweet friend who let me borrow this book and how it was at such a perfect time in my life to read this book!! "It is a powerful retelling of the book of Hosea in the bible... Redeeming Love is a life-changing story of God's unconditional, redemptive, all-consuming love"!!! I just finished reading it last night.... towards the end of the book there was that popular verse "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding".... as I was reading it I was just thinking about our situation and how at one time it was so hard for me to do that but now how that is becoming easier and easier for me. Just trusting in him and knowing he has a plan!!! I will say I still dont know why or understand why we have to go through this fertility struggle but I do know God has a greater plan and thats why with my faith I have chose not to give up . God has given me no reason to give up. He is always faithful to me!!

Fast foward to around 8:30 a.m. this morning........ my nurse practicioner called me with Chad's results (if you read my last post you knew he was going to be rechecked)
She wanted to just give me the results even though my Dr. had not seen them yet, she wanted to go ahead and share them. Wow, Im still blown away..... the results were GREAT this time compared to all the others!!!
Since Feb. 2009, which was when we discovered Chad's issue, and being checked several several times since then, all of the numbers have improved!!!!!!!! It has been 5 months since the last test. I had told you in the last post Chad and I had just put it on the back burner, Let God handle it, no vitamins like the Dr. had recommended, nothing has been done different. And now his results have changed completely for the good this time...... wouldnt you just say GOD IS SO GOOD!!!!!! The Drs. had no explanation as to why his results were abnormal to begin with, there was never a "diagnosis" made......
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding".
I feel so positive right now...... all morning I have cryed and cryed everytime I even think about it. When you experience something like this and you can just see God answering your prayers, its just SO REAL. So many emotions I've just been holding in and now God has showed me now more then ever..... Be Faithful!!!
So as of now I dont know what our next step is, I am waiting still to hear from what my Dr. recommends. But for now I will just keep on repeating this "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding"
Thank you Lord for answering prayers..............
