Things Like This . . .

make me sad to be suffering from infertility. Yesterday, I seen an article on new baby things for 2010. I mean ok let's be honest once you start trying to have a baby you start noticing all the cute baby things but for those of you who are walking down the lonely road of infertility cute baby stuff just makes for increased sadness and desire to have a baby. I try to avoid baby websites but occasionally things just pop up when I least expect it and remind me that another year of cute baby patterns and colors has come and gone and still no baby. Nevertheless, I will continue to remain hopeful that this seasons patterns will not pass me by!!

Prayers Please

So i know that normally when I ask for prayers its normally for me or Dalyn but this is an extra special prayer request. Let me give you a little background as to how I know this amazing person. Karen Taylor was my pledge mom the semester I pledged Phi Mu. She thought me what the sisterhood meant and how it could give you everything you gave to it. She was a kind, caring, self-less person, who made my transition into this amazing group of women enjoyable and memorable. To my own fault I hadn't done a very good job in keeping in touch with Karen after I graduated but she was always in my heart and I followed her life a lot through Facebook. I knew that she had found the love of her life and the man of her dreams and that she was set to be married. Yesterday, her wedding day, what was suppose to be one of the happiest most memorable days of her life turned into tragedy before it could even begin. I heard the terribly sad and tragic around 8 pm last night and have prayed almost constantly since for my dear sorority sister, Karen. I couldn't bare to re-post the news article because it was just to sad but I have posted the link below. I also posted their Knot website to give you a smal glimpse into their love story.

Please pray for Karen, pray for her family, pray for his family. Pray for healing, understanding, peace. Pray for her strength as she moves forward in this uncertain time. Pray that Karen seeks the Lord for healing and understanding.

Secrets Prevail

So I realize I have a ton of catching up to do with the blogging world. Life seems to be passing me by in a flash right now. I do have a couple of blogs I'm going to try and get in tonight, but we will see how long my eyes stay propped open. :-)

Of course I couldn't do an update without doing an infertility update. Dalyn and I have decided to keep things over the next few months private. We just feel like this will allow us the additional healing we need to move on with things. It's difficult for me not to write about things because this has become such an amazing outlet. I know though that this is the right decision for us right now. But please continue to pray as we will continue to make our way through this strange and uncertain infertility world. Maybe in the coming months I won't have to update about infertility but instead pregnancy!!!

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
