Oh Happy Day.

I am in still in utter shock, as the things we pray for and entrust to Him are just like that, taken care of. Our good God has blessed us yet again. Results are in….Stage 1, benign, NO ABNORMAL markers. The tumor did test positive for progesterone receptors, which explains the massive and quick growth at the end of pregnancy. Unfortunately, this means another baby would jeopordize my health, so numero 4 may be outta the picture. Something to be praying about, also something to be praising God for. I am so thankful I feel like there is at least an answer to all this.  You never know how news like this will feel until you really think through how opposite the news could be, and what those implications are. To really think through leaving my family was not cool. This chickadee is praising God for salvation from this trial. Also my eternal salvation, the fact I am His child and He cares for me has gotten us through this year with joy. I wouldn’t trade this for the world.
Anyway. The whole reason for this post is to THANK you, each and every one of you who has offered up a supplication, prayer on my/ our behalf. I know God hears, He answers and supplies us with all that we need for this life, without fail.

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in Heaven. For where there are two or three gathered in my name, there I am among them.
-Matthew 18:19-20

We are so immensly blessed by each of you, you will never know how your love and support has carried us through this time. Each time I stop and think how we are so loved and cared for, tears start streaming-it is highly emotional. We just can’t thank you enough. So praise God for His good and perfect gifts that come in the form of you. xoxo

    That is so cool…That is so cool…That is so cool!! I think I am repeating myself. Did we mention that Patrick and Eliana are adopted (of course we did) so number 4 doesn’t have to come naturally but it can still be ordained by God. If you ever want to have an information discussion about adoption let us know (or all the other couples that you probably know who have adopted) That is so cool.

    Praise God! I’m so excited for you!!!! And, you know, there are other ways to get that #4 kiddo – just saying. 🙂 But for reals, Michelle, this faith journey has been incredible to pray through for you and your family.
    8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
    nor are there any works like yours.
    9 All the nations you have made shall come
    and worship before you, O Lord,
    and shall glorify your name.
    10 For you are great and do wondrous things;
    you alone are God.
    Psalm 86:8-10
