Deepest Wounds...

I saw this on quote on Twitter the other day and it really made me think about our journey and how it not only affects me, David, and our immediate family, but also how much it affects other people...

"What if our deepest wounds are the very places through which God's mercy flows through others." ~Sheila Walsh

I continue to believe that God chose this path for our lives to not only open our hearts and minds, but also to teach us about trusting Him and His timing. I've received so many sweet emails and comments over the past 7 years about how much our story has helped others, how our faithfulness is inspiring, how our strength is amazing...and the reality of it all is that MOST of the time, I feel that I am lacking faith and that I am meek, impatient, frustrated, and ALWAYS questioning God's decisions.

But this quote had me thinking that this journey isn't all about David and I...it's about all those watching us as we experience this journey and how our deepest wounds could help others overcome their greatest fears, losses, or frustrations.

I think the wound of being infertile is one you never forget. Although I was eventually able to have 3 daughters who are now grown(the first by adoption and 2 by birth),I am a much more empathetic and patient person because of our 8 years of waiting to have a family. I have been able to help others going through this process and appreciate my children in a way I could have never experienced otherwise. You truly have to trust in God's timing and when you look back you will marvel at how perfect that timing was. I will keep praying for you.
