Wow... Now it's Time to Rest!!!

Christmas has came and gone. It's amazing how you wait so long for it to get here and it's over with so fast! It's easy to forget what this time of year is about when all you have on your mind is Presents and food! It's hard to believe the sacrifice that Mary and Joseph both went through to be earthly parents to Jesus! It would've been hard enought to just raise your own child during those times, but to know that you were going to be the earthly parents of the Son of God!!!! Wow!

We had such a great time with our families yesterday! Of course our niece Julie made Christmas fun! We only spoil her a little bit!

We both cleaned up shop so to speak with our gifts! I got a new shotgun from Kenny and Kenny got a new rifle from me! LOL! I also got a new ring from my grandparents and a set of Paula Deen pots and pans from my mother and father in law! Kenny got a lot of cool things too! We just pray that by next Tuesday we will know if we have gotten the best Christmas Present of all!

Here Comes Santa Clause, Here Comes Santa Clause...

Well we are praying that our Christmas miracle is given to us. It is now almost 6 days until I can test to see if this is the month! It would only have taken us a year and 3 months to finally become parents, but it would be the best Christmas present ever. We're praying for a miracle. I mean God is still on the throne because last Sunday at church my Grandparents finally got saved. After many years of praying, the Lord finally answered our prayers. I'm so happy that finally we've received some miracle. We're just hoping that this month we also receive a miracle that we will be having a little bundle of joy!

Where to Begin!

Well I origninally thought about starting a blog a few months back to have a place to put my thoughts with all that Kenny and I have been going through this last year and 3 months. Our lives have changed so much since we first started dating and since we've been married! Life was great when we started out as newlyweds! We didn't have to listen to anyone but ourselves! Life was perfect! Then last October to be exact, we started feeling like our lives weren't complete. We were missing something! We then started praying really hard that God would show us what we were missing in life. We finally realized that we were missing a family. Like a real one, which meant us having kids! I was very scared at first, but since I work with kids all day long teaching them at the preschool, and working with all the kids through our Youth Ministry in the church, I decided that this was what it was indeed! We started trying to have a baby that very month. Well we didn't really expect it to happen the first month, so we just kept trying. July was finally the month that we were waiting for! We had finally gotten a positive pregnancy test! Yay! Unfortunately though, life as we knew it was getting ready to fall apart. Just a few weeks later we had a miscarriage the week of Kenny's birthday. It was horrible and heartbreaking. We pressed on though, and jumped right back on the baby wagon. When October rolled around again, and we still had nothing to show for our efforts, we scheduled an appointment with my doctor. We have since been on fertility medication and every month I have to go in and have tests ran to make sure things are running smoothly. It's been such a hectic road and we are both just so eager for a family now that it's heartbreaking when month after month and time after time we fail to get what we hope and pray for daily. We know that God is going to show us our miracle, and until then we are going to try and be patient. It's been a long road though! This month when I went to the Doctor he did have some very good news and he was very certain that this month our medication would work. We are now in the waiting game... One more week to go until we find out if we will receive a late Christmas present! I know this is kinda random, but sometimes I just need a place to store my thoughts.
