To update those of you who have been praying for my friend Ashley, who I mentioned here...an active miscarriage started last night. *sigh* Her dr. told her that it was something called a 'missed' miscarriage...I guess her baby had died, and her body had missed it somehow...until now. Please continue to pray for healing for her body, and peace and strength for her and her husband. As I mentioned, this is her second miscarriage in about two years.
I don't want to sound like I'm doubting God's faithfulness and love, because I know He is good and loving no matter what circumstances He allows in our lives...but I've spent the morning in tears and in prayer, asking Him to help me understand why He would choose to allow my friend to go through this pain again. Thank you so much for praying...guess I could use some prayer, too. :)
On this random Monday morning, I am home alone! Hubby took little Z to town, and he is doing our grocery shopping for the week!!! Alone with baby!!! Something I don't even like to do! :) Isn't he a great guy? You should've seen the specific list I made for him...instead of 'canned peaches' it said: '1 can of sliced peaches- no sugar added- store brand'. :) But he does a good job, and I know they will have some great guy bonding time. :)
As for myself, I have been on the internet, spent some (much-needed) time in devotions and prayer (without a chattering toddler trying to grab my Bible), took a nice hot bath, and drank a cup of coffee with a new creamer- White Chocolate Coconut! It is delicious!!! I suppose you would have to like coconut to like it, but I do- it has a great coconut flavor! :)
Now I'm going to make something called 'Fudge Ecstasy Cookies' for our MOPS volunteers for tomorrow! Because after two hours with all of OUR kids...they deserve it - and more!!! :)
