Today is one of those days...

One of those days where I type this post through tears. Where there are still more questions than answers. Where I hope I don't sound like a whiner but I need to reach out. Where I know my circumstances are not tragic but somehow are still very difficult. Please pray for me today. My little Mercy feels so very far away.

On a happier note here are some pics of my boys at their end of the school year play. It was sooooo adorable!
Above is my Zion's class
Here is a close up of my wonderful ZZ
Above is Noah's class
Here is a close up of my wonderful Noah
Finally here is a new bird friend that has been fun to watch. I think he is beautiful. Anyone know what kind he is?

Thanks for praying!


  1. I'm always praying for y'all.... hope your day has gotten better! Nice pics of the boys! Summer break is almost here!

  2. Michelle,
    I know the wait is unbearable. I've been there. And to be honest, there is nothing anyone can say to make it better. You just have to find it in your heart to pray yourself to a better place. No matter where you are in the process right now, it's not a good place to be (for your heart and mind I mean). I'm praying for you and for all of us caught up in the mess in Guatemala right now.
    God's gonna get us through this, I just wish He'd hurry up :)

  3. Thank you Pam... I know you understand...we will pray for eachother.

  4. I am so sorry. I know all too well that pain you feel.

  5. Hi Michelle,

    SO GOOD to be with you today! I just read your post from yesterday again and remember 11 years ago, crying out to God hungering for a child. It had been 10 years married without children. Every month I would get my period at my Sister in Law's house...she had 3 children! One day I was home and I was 5 days late for my period. I had SUCH hope and fear at the same time. I went to the Word and opened randomly to Psalm 113. I was desperate for comfort from the Lord. When I got to verse 9,..." and the barren woman will be made a joyful mother of children". I remember screaming at God saying,"I can't believe You would allow me to read that at this moment and not follow through with this promise!" I ran to the bathroom and I yelled at our awesome God again...very very angry, and said, "If I am not pregnant I want to see a red stain RIGHT NOW!! " and sure enough! There it was! = ) How perfectly gracious and kind He is! I had to press myself into that promise of the Lord. And now...5 children later...His promises are true! Jesus has given you and Eric a PROMISE for Mercy. Rest in that promise, press yourself into it and recieve the spring rain from your friends and little ones as you wait for His PERFECT TIMING!!! You know that when she FINALLY arrives, it will seem like there was NO WAIT at all! = )

    I love you, too, my dear friend!

  6. How fun!

    And I venture to say that your blue bird friend is just that, and Eastern Bluebird. They are said to be blue birds of happiness. I would agree, as spotting one (a rare occurence here in CT), surely brings MUCH joy.

    cheers to you;
    mama to 6
    one homemade and 5 adopted

  7. You have a beautiful family! I pray that things start moving for you and all the others awaiting completion of their Guatemalan adoptions. All this pain you feel now is sure to be a distant memory when you have your princess in your arms. Keep holding on. =)


"As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord."
