Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

Eeeek 2 months already!

How did it get to be 2 months since I last posted??? Time really does seem to fly by - I often think back to the days where we were struggling with infertility and how time seemed to go really slow and I would often be bored and struggling to think of something to do - these days I am struggling to fit everything in!! 

I feel so blessed to be busy and although some days I long for some of that "boredom" and time for me, I wouldn't change any of it! 

There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    a time to plant and a time to uproot,

    a time to tear down and a time to build,

    a time to mourn and a time to dance,

    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

    a time to keep and a time to throw away,

    a time to be silent and a time to speak,

    a time for war and a time for peace.

Sometimes we are in a "time" of trial, others a "time" of blessings but through it all God is Sovereign and He will provide what we need, whether that is energy, material things or strength. He is faithful. 

That doesn't mean that we will necessarily find it easy to live through but it does mean that if we remember to keep our focus on Jesus and what He can and has and will do for us we can keep a right attitude and we can be lifted above our circumstances. 

I found this song and wanted to share as it's so encourgaing, if you are going through a difficult time - remember that God is faithful and He's got you!!
