Lump in my throat

Man. I'm somewhat speechless right now. All these years, all this time, I have just lived in this "bubble." You know loving the life the Lord has given to me, happily married with a growing family and a great circle of family and friends. It doesn't get any better...

Since I've entered "blogger world," it has opened my eyes up more than I really wanted them to. I have a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as I read through so many blogs who's families are fighting, pleaing with the Lord to save thier child. I hope and pray that I never join "that club," but I also am glad that these ladies give us a glimpse into thier lives to show us what a testament they are to the Lord. Giving other families who are going through the same situation hope and faith that our mighty and awesome Lord will get them through anything...If they allow him. If I do ever join "that club" - the club no one wants to talk about - please pray that I can be like these women. Women like MckMama and all those ladies who posted comments on her post yesterday titled, "I will never forget." http://www.mycharmingkids.net/.

I know no words that I have will ever seem good enough, but being a mother puts you in this special club....and when other mommies hurt and are grieving, you just want to take it away....you can't imagine if that was happening to your precious baby.... These ladies open thier lives up and bare thier souls...so much so that eventually, in a wierd but good way, you feel like you know them... I feel like I owe it to them to pass thier hope and love in the Lord and thier legacy of thier child onto all of my readers... I pray that thier stories touch you as much as they've touched me....Making me relish each moment with my sweet Cydni and baby bean #2. I also know that none of them read my blog, but I just want to say that I will never forget thier stories, thier children, thier hope and faith.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lord, I pray that you be with each and every one these families who have so much hope in you in such a great time of despair. For Cora, Audrey, Tuesday and all those commenters on MckMama's blog who've laid thier child at the Lord's feet for him to heal them completely... I praise you for the miracles you've preformed in Ben "Shermi", Harper & Stellan. And especially pray for those who are still fighting so desparately, like sweet dancing Abby. I wish I could list all of them by name, but I don't have to... You know each and everyone of them by name.

Lord, I want to pray for all of those women who struggle with infertility. It has to be such a long, exhausting journey for them with peaks and valley's that I can't relate with, but I hope and pray that you will bless them with a child and I hope and pray that they can have a peace that you have a plan....

For all those babies that were born healthy and are thriving. We thank you for their health and praise you for all blessings that come with having a child. And for all the pregnant ladies, I pray for each of you and your unborn babies...

It's in your heavenly name I pray, AMEN!
