Thankful Thursday

I am trying to count the things I have instead of what I don't in my effort to find joy.  So here goes:

1.  Friends both fertile and infertile who understand the pain of infertility.  Here is a link to a beautiful video called tears and hope.  It captures so well the pain and sorrow of infertility. I was reminded of this video from my friend Rebecca who I have met on my journey. 

2. A wonderful husband who held me as I cried.

3. Scriptures.  This is my favorite scripture this week.  Isaiah 55: 8-13  

  8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
  9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
  10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
  11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing hereto I sent it.
  12 For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
  13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.


  1. I am thankful for friends like you & the support and kindness you have shared with me on my journey!

  2. I love that scripture!
