September

For those of you who are struggling with waiting....of any sort...infertility or other, I encourage you to take a look at this post by my friend Stacey. After 12 years of marriage and six miscarriages, Stacey is pregnant and due to have her baby girl in less than three weeks.

Stacey remarks in her post that she and her husband have been waiting for this month for eight years. The month that their baby is to be born.

One year ago this month I labored and delivered my baby girl. I didn't know if I would ever conceive and carry a baby. But I did and in just 10 days she will be one.

Oh Stacey is so right. We don't know the month that our dreams will come true. The month that we wait and pray and hope for.

But God does. He knows if our waiting is nine months or nine years.

I praise God for how He has used Stacey's struggle to encourage others and bring hope to those who are waiting. And I can't wait to celebrate the news of Baby Lily!

Thank you so much, friend! I appreciate your sweet words of encouragement, both now and especially during my years of waiting. Thank you for ministering to me and countless others!
