God moves in a mysterious way

Since my last post, things gradually got worse with regards to my pregnancy. The spotting didn't stop, but rather gradually got worse. We decided to have another checkup yesterday, and found that there was no more heartbeat to be found. My heart just sank when I realized that this was the end of a life, and that once again we had to say goodbye to another little baby. However, God has filled our hearts with exceeding peace and joy, which comes only from His presence, knowing that He is in full control of all things and that He only does that which is good for us and for His glory. So we would like to praise our God, who gives and takes away - our God of love and compassion whose arms we felt through our church family in such a loving and caring way. He continues to be our portion through this dark time, and we are assured of His grace to get through all the trials He brings along our path as more than conquerors. Thank you to all those who were praying for our little baby, and who continue to pray for us as a family. You all mean so much to us!

God Moves In A Mysterious Way

God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs,
And works His sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take,
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.

William Cowper

New Little Addtion - 8 weeks

We had our first gynae visit this morning, and were very blessed to see a little baby being knitted together by our wonderful Lord, and then to hear the heartbeat was just awesome. My estimated due date was the 29th of March, and the estimated date according to the machine, which is still subject to change is the 3rd of April (my little sister's birthday). All is looking well, even though we had a bit of a scare with some spotting earlier today. Our prayers continue to go up before our God, that He would keep this little one safe, and that 'he' would one day know and love our Savior. He? you might say??? How do you know it's a 'he'. Well, we did an early gendre prediction test, and according to that it's a 'he', so until proven otherwise, it will be a 'he'.

Thank you to all those who have been and will continue to pray for us.
