~hope,patience,faith~



..."Be joyful in hope,patient in affliction,faithful in prayer"...
~Romans 12:12~



**** So this is my facebook status tonight. Even though my hubby is at work, and I have been left alone at home with my mind. I have been unexpectedly uplifted tonight.
I have followed Angie Smith's blog off and on for a while. But I didn't really know her story until recently. :) It all started with hearing the song, "I Will Carry You (Audrey's Song)" By Selah over on a blogger friends (Rose) blog...and then it led to like an hour of youtube listening to the song, watching the video of precious Audrey Caroline, and then watching videos from Crosspoint Church, featuring Angie and her husband.
I just want to say it was heartbreaking yet SO uplifting. I feel so encouraged. Hopeful even.
Angie just gave birth to her Rainbow Baby on May 19th, a beautiful little baby girl, Charlotte. :) There is hope.
I am vowing to remain joyful & hopeful, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. I know that God will bless. It may not be in the the time frame I want, and the blessing may not be what or how I want it... BUT... I know that His way is perfect.****

I am so sorry you are there...that place where everything is so overwhelming and out of control. The waiting place. You are not alone. Praying for peace...no matter how small or big.

I follow Angie's blog off and on; I was delighted to hear about her new little one. God's timing is always perfect and his plan always the best. that is an awesome scripture to memorize and remember during this waiting time

Have you heard that song, "While I'm Waiting?" can't remember who sings it right now but it sort of reminds me of that verse...though I'm hurting, I'll wait on you Lord...and I'll praise you.

I try...I try!

I've not been able to bring myself to read Angie's book yet. I will...just when I'm a little stronger!
xoxo
