A Day To Celebrate!

It just so happens that my new blog was opened on a very special day!  My oldest son's birthday!  I still remember the day he was born just like it was a matter of weeks ago.  I'd just been through two crushing miscarriages when I found out that he was on the way. 

I was so afraid of losing him too.  I fretted everyday that I would start seeing the signs of miscarriage.  I prayed so hard that God would allow this pregnancy to be healthy.  Then, the dreaded day came.  I was around six weeks along and started spotting a little.  I was devastated!  We had just started revival at church and the preacher's wife was due around the exact same time I was so I'm sure she could feel my fear.  People wanted to pray for me but I told them it wouldn't do any good because I just didn't feel like I had the faith believe.

There is a special thing about our God, however, that I was failing to see at that moment.  God is like a parent.  He wasn't angry with me because I was scared.  He wasn't mad that I didn't seem to have abounding faith when I felt so low.  In fact, He understood and He cared.

I knelt down before Him with a broken heart and something amazing happened!  My faith began to rise and so did my hope!  People began praying for me while my Lord embraced me in His love.  Within 24 hours everything was completely normal!

Now, 14 years later, on this exact day, I'm celebrating the life of a handsome young man that God gave to me even though my faith seemed gone.  Now, I realize, I didn't lose my faith at all, I had just lost sight of it!

Happy 14th Birthday, Son, you are truly our precious gift from God!  We love you! 


I find joy in writing!  I find self expression in writing as well.  I feel that it is a gift from God that allows me to share with others what's inside my heart.  Many people view me as an introvert, but that is only because they don't read my writings.  I'm really a person with a full heart that loves and cares for everyone.  I really feel that I'm inspired in some way every single day.  My faith inspires me, my children inspire me.  I'm convinced that if a person learns to open their heart that they can see life through the eyes of inspiration and faith.  This blog will be dedicated to families and families of faith. 

My postings will cover many topics.  Some may include: Marriage, parenting, homeschooling, crafts, health & wellness and of course, faith.
