all is well

Good news... we went in and were able to see our precious new little life flickering away on the screen, heartbeat and all. Everything is measuring right on "schedule" and we left feeling a load lifted. I prayed specifically on the way there that the Lord would anoint our time, drape it in His peace, and surround us with angels. I prayed we would radiate something 'different', something that would reveal a glimpse of Him to all who spoke with us. Thank you for praying with us today. What might have been an extremely traumatic appointment was actually quite wonderful; the only tears I cried this morning were tears of hope.
More to come...

Boothe,
I have been checking back and checking back. Thanks for the wonderful update. We are moving in two days and I have a ton to pack! I just couldn't concentrate, so I put it on hold. Back to work...

I am so thrilled and thankful for you!

Oh Boothe,

Tears of hope are such a wonderful thing and I am feeling them right along with you. Praise the Lord for His goodness and peace for your time there today. I love you guys and am praying for that little treasure you are carrying right under and in your heart.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

I am rejoicing with you! God is so faithful!

The Lord gave me a song years ago I felt to share with you...

Be still my child
and yield to me
you'll see that I can make you free
I will lift you up
turn you around
and put your feet on solid ground
rivers of life
abundant life...
the desert flower will bloom again
You'll see, that I'll make everything new
I'll make it all so very, very new

(Hoping for that myself in my time of darkness.)

'New' doesn't mean excluding Copeland or leaving her behind, by the way. She will always be with you and will remain your precious little girl forever.

Sandi said...

Praising God with you. I had one of those appointments with the baby I'm carrying right now. We had two losses before this pregnancy, so ultrasounds were so scary. When we saw his little heartbeat that first ultrasound, I sobbed tears of joy, hope and relief. Your post brought me back to that moment. Rejoicing and praying with you.
