Isaiah 40:29 - He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

We are all truly a group of courageous women! It is courage why we brush the seat of our pants, and jump on the TTC wagon again. It is courage why we think of even having other children. It is courage why we refuse to give up. It is courage why we educate ourselves even though that knowledge can scare us. It is courage why we try every means necessary to have the family we desire.
I used to think of myself as a coward, but now I know it is not so. I am afraid of needles, but I had two spinals and an epidural. I am afraid of pain, but I went through labor twice. I am afraid of another loss, but I am willing to jump back on the horse and try again. This my friend is courage.
After all that we have been through, we have all come out even more courageous than we started out. I can only attribute this new trait to our Savior. I also grudgingly accept that I had to lose two babies in order to realize it.

I am reminded that I am not alone, and he will give me the strength to be courageous and overcome all adversities. What an amazing God.

Where is my expected end?

  3. Marie, thank you for this post. I was feeling sad this morning and this helped. :)
