A Tough Year

It seems I always have the goal to keep this blog up to date and then life happens. In the last twelve months, we’ve gone through two births of twelve week old gestation babies, fully formed and dead in our hands and the death of my mom. Part of me says, no one wants to hear this, it’s depressing. Then I think about how I’ve been helped by those that don’t exclusively share the happy times, but reveal that they too have suffering and struggles. I am not alone. We have also recently left our church which is a different kind of grieving, but has left us broken too.
All this to say that all these things have not left us hopeless, but since we know who God is, through His word – the Bible; we are all the more hopeful because of what He has produced in our lives because of these sufferings. We have found the sweet times all the sweeter. We have found His word all the more satisfying. We have found the hope of 2 Corinthians 4:17 all the more real, that “These light (though they feel so extremely heavy) and momentary (definitely momentary in light of eternity) troubles are producing an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
Thank you to all of you who have walked with us through these times, who have and are praying for us, and for the gifts of many of you who are reading this. We are so grateful for your support and now know better how to love others in hard times because of your example to us.
