My Thoughts Are Higher than Yours (Part II)

God's Word spoken in Isaiah is still true, even when, especially when we don't understand. As many of you know, we are not in Texas. I am not teaching school. In fact, we don't even have adoption plans anymore. I feel like I'm writing a story about someone else. All the events since my last…

My Thoughts Are Higher Than Yours

God’s Word spoken in Isaiah has been proved true once again. My sister and I talked about the fact that we like things to fall into place perfectly before we believe it’s God’s Will. We wondered if that was something we needed to change or if we were just expecting perfection of an already perfect…

What Can my Heaviness Do?

My heart has been heavy today as I thought of all the children/women enslaved. I don’t know what to say or what to do, but the heaviness caused me to seek information. And the more I learnt, the more I realized how incredibly sad it all is and how my life is so easy compared.…

The Dictatorship of the Customary

This is a post I'm writing on the 21st of March, 2020 but I actually have no idea when, or even if, I will post it. We've dreamt of so many things that we haven't been able to fulfill but often we had shared our dreams already and had to do so much explaining when…

Lovingkindness

In going through my old drafts, I came across this post that I wrote quite a while back. It resonated with me again when I reread it so I thought it was probably better of published than hidden away in my drafts folder. Hoping it can be a blessing! Lovingkindness. Somehow this word puzzles me.…

My Psalm

Dear Lord, I realize once more that You have a plan for our life and that it’s so different than that of our friends’. You have put infertility into our story and it’s affecting every aspect of our lives. I thought maybe it had already affected every thing possible but I am face to face…

Apologetics and Me

My first real introduction to apologetics was Nabeel Qureshi's book Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus https://amzn.to/3ej6UuN. I was fascinated. But I wondered, "Why does this fascinate me?" I've believed in God and…

Growing Thoughts Towards Infertility

I guess this will be Part II of my series this National Infertility Awareness Week. I've discovered some amazing community online and some of them shared some pretty thought-provoking stuff this week. One of the things that stuck to me was this: Infertility is my diagnosis, it's not who I am. The reason I think…

Sharing Some of my Thoughts (NIAW)

It's National Infertility Awareness Week, and as I read other peoples' stories, I am overwhelmed because I realized how blessed we've been. Did I just say "blessed" and "infertility" in the same sentence?! Truly though, we have been blessed. We made mistakes along the way, I'll be the first to admit that, but we didn't…

Just Do It!

We came home from my parents tonight and I told Jon I needed to write. "Just do it," he said. And so I did. I'm so grateful to have a husband who encourages me to write when I need to, even if it means he has to go to bed alone. ❤️❤️ We're still talking…
