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

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always Psalm~105:4

Today I went for my cycle day 11 ultrasound and blood work. The words out of the nurses mouth as she did my ultrasound were "Whew, girl!!!...." I already had a feeling, as I have felt fullness and crampy the last 2 days. She said I had a "whole crop" of follicles on my ovaries!! 10 of them on my Right side... So after 7 nights of fertility shots, they have done their job to say the least!! Wednesday will be the day for the IUI..... I appreciate all prayers from you guys!! I have enough fertility meds for one more cycle after this one if this doesnt work. After that we are done with the treatments.

"You can have as much of Me and my Peace as you want, through thousands of correct choices each day. The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose, to trust Me no matter what. I am an ever-present help in trouble. Trust Me, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. Psalm 46~1:2

These are words from my devotional that I read for Saturdays devotion. What a peace I have right now. I may never ever know why God has brought me through this valley of infertility but I know one thing, through it HE has brought me closer to Him. I cant explain how Faith, my Trust, it has never been stronger. It has gotten so much easier to let the worries go. I wont say that they arent still in the back of my mind and yes, if it doesnt happen again this month I will be let down and discouraged but today I know I trust him. He is ever so present, He has already answered prayers by showing us improvements in some of the issues that have caused us to be unable get to get pregnant to begin with. As I continue to wait I choose to trust Him and not worry. He has got this, I know!! and no matter what the outcome I will still trust Him.

God is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine. Ephesians~3:20

Fun Day For A Field Trip

Sam and his class have been learning all about the solar system since the beginning of January. Sam LoVeS science, so he has had lots of fun doing a science project this month on the solar system and getting to go the Space and Rocket Center this month on a school field trip.
I know I have said this before, but I am so thankful that I get to go and be with Sam to all of his school activities and be there for all those memories. I know it probaly wont be to much longer that he'd rather not ALWAYS have this crazy moma at everything with my camera in his and his friends faces all the time :) Luckily this year his teacher has asked me to come and take pics of all of the activities so I just use that excuse as far as the pics :)


{silly boys}

{getting ready to do the rock wall climb}

{whoo-hoo Sam, you made it to the top}

couldnt leave this one out... {best buds}

{and last, the science project}

Siesta Scripture Memory Verse Team ~ Verse 3

Time to share verse 3 for the LPM Scripture Memory Team. This is a verse that I have read many many times over the past few years as we have prayed and endured the long wait for another child. This week I actually went back to my fertility Dr. after about a 4 month pause in treatments due to cysts that wouldnt go away. All the cysts were gone and that was nothing short of an answered prayer. I started my fertility shots on Monday night {no fun at all} and this verse is gonna be great for reassurance and ecouragement as I dwell on it daily!!

But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed. Habakkuk~ 2:3
