Our Precious Five

The title says it all...
At the begining of this year we found out that the Lord has blessed us to call another little one our precious. We are thrilled at the miricle of life and the Lords faithfulness.
Monday we went in for an ultrasound and found out that we were having another Glory Baby. God is so good and faithful. He has given us so much grace. Yes there is definately grief and a huge feeling of loss, a total loss of a dream to hold, have, enjoy a newborn agian. Everyone knows how sweet they are! And for that I ask your prayer. That is the biggest loss to me. Anyone how has known me knows that I have always wanted a big family. Darrell and I always said that we wanted to have 5 children, but we were going to trust God for His will to be done in our lives. Today I started reading a book that I read in middle school, called Absolute Surrender. Its been amazing... I want to leave you all with a phrase that gripped me.

" If God allows the sun to shine on you moment by moment, without intermission, will God not let His life shine on you every moment? And why have you not experienced it? Because you have not trusted God for it, and you do not surrender yourself absolutely to God in that trust."
" Such a life has two sides - on one side, absolute surrender to work what God wants you to do;on the other side, to let God work what He wants to do."
