Faith In God Includes Faith In His Timing
As many of you know, Eric and I have been trying to bring some babies into this world for quite some time now, without any luck thus far. We have an incredible fertility doctor (which if any of you need one- trust me, you want him!) that we love and appreciate so much. Although we don't talk a lot about whats going on in the fertility part of our lives, and we are generally pretty vague about what is happening with testing and such, we appreciate everyones prayers, thoughts and encouragement, and ask that you keep them coming. :) I know that everything will work out when it is supposed to, and we just have to be faithful and patient. We would absolutely love to be parents, and I know that this trying time is a trial the Lord has given us to help refine us, and I'm sure will make us better parents when the time comes. My testimony has been strengthened and I have grown closer to my Savior through this process. At times I feel angry, frustrated, and sad, but knowing that my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me, and that He knows the desires of my heart, has helped me to have an eternal perspective. He already has blessed me with an incredible husband to be able to spend eternity with and I know that even if it was just going to be him and I in this earthly life, I'm already more blessed and happier than I could ever deserve. I've learned, firsthand, that the Lord's timing and our timing are not always the same, and I know that I need to have faith that everything will work out how, and when it is supposed to.
I plan on blogging our journey and experiences with infertility sometime, things I've learned, how we've grown together, and all the ups and downs, but for now, I just wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They are being felt and I know that they are helping us get through both the easy times and the more difficult times, so please keep praying for us! Whenever the time may be that we are given the blessing of a child, I will definitely be letting everyone know. It may be months from now, it may be years from now, but I know that when the timing is right for us, it'll happen... and those babies will be dang good looking! ;)
