Is it really tomorrow?

The past two months have sped by at an alarming rate.

Tomorrow is the day of our appointment with Dr. W. I can't tell if I'm nervous or excited or what. I feel a little numb, actually. When I stop and think about it, I'm shocked that we are going to an infertility specialist. Someone who specializes in people who can't get pregnant. We aren't that infertile, are we? The past four years beg to differ.
Before getting ready to leave this afternoon to run some errands, I took one last glimpse of myself in the mirror to tame down my hair and I had the thought, "I don't look infertile." As if looks have anything to do with it. I laughed at my silly thought. "I look like someone who wants to be a mom," I concluded.

Maybe one day I will be.

We ask for prayer for much wisdom tomorrow. Safe travels, too. Distance is not the thing I'm most happy about. Pray that whatever the outcome of our visit, whatever options are presented, whatever the next step seems to be, pray that Christ will be glorified in our lives. And that our hearts would be content with that alone.

I will update later this week.

Hi, Honey

I just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you and William and your big day tomorrow. Of course, I pray for you every day, usually several times a day.

I know you're excited and anxious all at the same time. I know I am! I will pray specfically for protection for your travel, wisdom for the doctors, wisdom for you both as you make decisions, and above all, that the Lord Jesus Christ will be honored and glorified.

Your desire to honor and glorify the Lord pleases Him and it pleases your dad and mom, too. I love you very much and I'll call you later tonight.

I have been and will continue to pray. I am so proud of you and your desire above all else to serve the Lord. I don't know the outcome of all of this but I do know that with God you never lose. Your mom told me once that God is just making you a finer piece of Gold for His Kingdom. Can't wait to hear from you again.

Hi Glenna...Thanks for finding me. By all means add me to your blog roll. I can use any advice and support that is offered, and I hope I can return the favor to you and others. Praying for good reports from your doc's visit today. Meditate on Philippians 4:11.
