Blog You Should Read

Sometimes I go from one person's blog to the next, to the next, to the next. It makes me wonder, sometimes, how many people read my blog that I'm not aware of. After all, there are several people I've never met that have blogs I read. You never know how God will use something as simple as a blog. I came across one in particular that was such an incredible story I thought I'd share.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the blog of Todd and Angie Smith's young daughter, Audrey. Todd is a member of the Christian group, Selah. The web address is: http://audreycaroline.blogspot.com/

Be sure you give yourself plenty of time to read various posts. I started at the beginning. Their testimony is so incredible and her blog is such an encouragement to me. I couldn't help but sit there and read - crying, rejoicing, and hoping.

In other news, my friend, Cortney, finds out if her baby is a boy or girl today. I didn't expect the emotions this would bring. I'm so thrilled for her. I guess I can't help but miss being in that same situation. Peanut would have been 23 weeks as of yesterday. Shawna finds out whether I'll be getting a niece or nephew on December 3rd. As excited as I am, I'm finding it harder and harder to not feel sad and disappointed as these various milestones continue to pass. Not my plans, God, but yours! Not my timing, but yours! "I'm letting go, of the life I planned for me - and my dreams...." God help me to let go of what I had planned for myself and accept where you've placed me. May I be content with the circumstances I'm in and continue to trust in you.

I have read audrey carolines blog too...only I read it at work - MISTAKE - I had to keep stopping because I was getting so emotional I couldn't not cry.
I'll be praying for you! I'm glad to see that in the middle of this you are willing to talk about it and let yourself walk through it without getting bitter or turning your back on God. He will bring you through!! :) Love you friend!
