a great love...

I will praise you, Oh Lord my God,
with all of my heart;
For great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the depth of the grave.
Ps. 86:12

HERE is a post I wrote 1 year ago. 

 Today, as I  reflect again, 
I can honestly say that I am thankful 
those difficult years.  
The Lord used them in a mighty way 
to teach me so much  
 about His love, grace, and faithfulness. 

And isn't that what this season is all about?

This is an inspiring passage Rene. Yes, that's what it's about. I love your shot, you have such amazing taste. Diane

Oh Rene, I don't know what it is like to be infertile, but isn't it amazing that God loves us right where we are?!! I can't imagine my life without him and I praise Him for His goodness to me.
I was in a mood today because our power was out from about midnight last night until about 1:30 pm today, but got my act together and worked on a sign that says, "Rejoice in the Lord always" so I went around the house just saying it over and over. God is good ...all the time!!!!
Blessings dear friend!

Dear Gracie ~ What a great post! I was thinking along these same lines today.

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

Lamentations 3:22-24

Jesus/God left is glorious estate to be born as a baby in this corrupt world. He died and rose again so that we'd be FREE.

Christmas is a wonderful Holy season. A time to rejoice in His mercies.

Love and hugs to you ~ FlowerLady

Having traveled that
road twice, I can relate
to the sadness in that
post. Luckily, I was blessed
both times with full-term
births, but not until I was
nearly 33. It was a growth
period both personally and
for our marriage. I am glad
that you have found peace
and can mark the day from
a sweet place.

AMEN, Hugs Mary

It is what the season is about. A time to reflect on the greatest gift given to mankind by a loving Father and the cost.
Blessings and prayers for you today.

I was intrigued & read the old post. I see there was sadness in your life then. I can relate to infertility & longing for a large family. after I turned forty I had given up. One day when I least suspected a miracle happened & at 45 I was going to be a mother. Wow. The 3 little miracles.God has a way of taking care of us when he feels it's time. You seem to have come out the other side. so much happiness in your life now, & Oh those little ones. Lisa
