We have just come through a difficult season. We had hoped I would be expecting another baby, but our second try at IVF was unsuccessful and even though I knew that was possible, I was shocked, hurt and disappointed.
Perfect timing – Chad planned a great vacation and I needed it so badly. The first morning I took Birdie to the indoor pool to swim and as we visited with another family in the pool, I felt God gently showing me that none of us are free from pain or disappointment. I remembered the part of Psalm 30:5 that Lynn, my sister, mentioned recently ( while talking me through a big cry / feel sorry for myself phone call)
“… weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning” Psalm 30:5
We had such a great vacation. ( by the way, he is a great planner of vacations – my idea of vacation planning is getting in the car and hoping we come across something great – not great).
He rented a room at Big Cedar Lodge for a few nights and we drove down to the Branson area from St. Louis. The beautiful landscapes and mountain views felt healing and a reminder to my heart of God’s love and care. Matt 6:28-30
I had to see this chapel on the property, when I saw it in the brochure. We were walking through it and Chad said something like ” this looks like you designed it” – what a compliment! I also took some pictures of it, after dinner our last night there.
Blessings to you,
