Be Still...

We are in that transitional period where we are standing still.


Our home study is complete and waiting. Our fertility treatments are on hold until we can save more money. And although I know this is JUST a transitional period, it seems like an eternity.


I must admit that the holidays are the worst time for people suffering from infertility. But I'm trying to make sure that I spend the holidays being thankful, enjoying family and friends, and praising God for the wonderful blessings I do have...instead of sitting still and dwelling on what I don't have.


God said, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth" in Psalm 46:10.


So I'm choosing to be still...to quietly wait, to patiently listen, and to trust that this transitional period will soon me over.

Always praying for you friend! I am thankful for you "friendship" in the blogging world.

You should let me know when you come to Texas to visit. Maybe I can drive half-way and we could meet sometime?

Also, the "MckLinky" host...is just in a town about 10 minutes away.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love that scripture. Sometimes I have to try really hard to 'Be Still' and put all my faith in God.

The holidays are hard, but you're right, we have to be thankful and count our blessings.

Just wanted to share that when we were doing fertility treatments, we also had to take a month off to save money and I ended up pregnant that month! It was a complete shock and never in a million years did I think it would happen. anyhow just wanted to tell you to keep your head up. Anything is possible!

Thank you for the reminder. I really need to be reminded about being still and waiting during this stressful time in my life and in my family's life.
