If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. ••••••••••••
Date night with the beautiful @thecopefarmhouse and some lovely #coffeeart from the kind ladies at @harvestcoffeebar The girls keep asking why we have to go on SOOO many dates all the time when we are already married. I suppose I'll have to explain to them that loving each other isn't supposed to stop once you get married; it means you get the opportunity to show it everyday. 🤔 Crazy girls. 😏💑
Hope y'all are all having a wonderful day. Focus on the good, put away all the evil. He helps. 😊
A mother eagle prepares the nest for her babies with soft fluffy feathers, and soft leaves and anything that makes that baby comfortable. Once the babies are born she then takes away those comforts. One by one until the nest is unbearable to live in. On the edge the baby looks down and is full of fear. But, the Fear of the unknown couldn't be worse than staying in the nest. So they jump. They take that leap of faith and just as the baby plummets below the momma flies down and takes the baby on her wings. So the baby can know what it feels like to soar. And from then on, there is no stopping it. Confidence is built and Faith in its own wings is Seen and Felt.
This is what GOD does for us. He makes the places that we are at in life uncomfortable to where we have No Choice but to take that leap of Faith...and once we do we can Soar on HIS wings and also know what we can do through Him. We may feel like we are falling but He's there to pick us up. Trusting in HIM IS what He wants us to do. My dad told me this the other day and it was the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. Hope it blesses someone else as it did me.
It’s so easy to feel unseen in the midst of this incredibly heartbreaking recurrent pregnancy loss journey. Our eight babies in heaven are unseen, my abdominal scars from two emergency salpingectomies are unseen, and the next chapter of our story remains yet to be seen. While much of our story still feels very hidden and unseen, David and I have felt so incredibly loved and seen by our amazing friends and family, and also by our medical team at the Fertility Center of the Carolinas. The nurses, doctors, and front desk staff know our names and our story, and they have demonstrated a level of compassion and care for us at a time when we’ve needed it most. Our story is pretty unconventional and we aren’t sure if we will ever find medical answers. The medicine just isn’t there yet in so many ways. But words can’t express the gratitude I have in my heart for our medical team there and their willingness to think outside the box, try unconventional approaches, and be open to new research and collaboration on my case. They don’t pretend to have all the answers, but they have never given up on our dream and they’ve treated us with dignity, respect, compassion, and care every step of the way. When I walked in today for my post-op appointment, I felt truly seen. Although my dream of naturally conceiving and carrying a child to term has come to a close, I’m confident this isn’t the end to our story. If you or someone you know is going through infertility, I would highly recommend the medical team at the Fertility Center of the Carolinas. #infertility#miscarriage#ectopicpregnancy#recurrentpregnancyloss#hope#fcc
The Word of the Day for Week 5️⃣ was......FAITH! In Peter Pan, there’s a quote which people love that says, “All you need is faith, trust and a little pixie dust”. One of the reasons people love Peter Pan so much is because he reminds adults and kids alike of the power of seeing the world with childlike faith💫 Will you come and see the world through the eyes of a child on Saturday, 2/24? Shine! Peter Pan is now less than 1 week away! Hope to see you in Neverland🗺✨
