Sharing Sunday

Today was a sharing services in church. We have never done that before, and it was neat. There was no sermon, nothing planned. The whole services was left up to the congregation. It ended up being 1/2 hour longer than normal, and it was great!

Eric and I shared about our infertility for the first time in church. It was hard. I was hoping Eric would do all the talking, so I wrote down what I wanted to say. But when it was our turn Eric barely said anything and I did all the talking. I managed to get through it without crying, but then I bawled when we sat down. I am glad to have shared it in church, we need all the prayers and support we can get!

This summer our church's theme was "Are We There Yet?" and we studied the Israelites and their time wandering in the desert. I could relate to them in so many ways. I feel like we are wandering the desert too, but rather than looking for a land of milk and honey, we are looking for a land of milk and Huggies. (Although we will be cloth diapering, that just doesn't sound as good! hehe)

I have been learning to praise God through everything. Although sometimes it seems like it just can not get worse, and I beg Him to take me home, God IS still present, real and He loves me. He is blessing me, but it is not always in ways I want Him too! Today Andrew shared a song by MercyMe that I love, and today I realized how much it applies to me. It is my prayer:

So Jesus, bring the rain!
