His Faithfulness

I have struggled to write this post.  I feel like no words can quite articulate the depth of His goodness.  So here I am trying.  
We have known since July 20th that we are pregnant.  I wasn't prepared for the emotion as I stared at the pink positive sign while sitting on my bathtub.  I was thankful, I was scared, I was joyful, I was sad.  
It's an unnatural feeling when you are celebrating the new life within you while still mourning the life that just left you.
We have asked God all along that if He wants us to be parents again, for it to be in His timing.  
As we began to tell people, there was a lot of joy mixed with a lot of tears.  I began to pour out my heart over this child praying every possible prayer over this precious life.  
After early ultrasounds and blood work, all looked good.
I was on my way to meet Nathan for our 8 week appt. and I began praying out loud in the car.  I told God that it's just still really hard.  I told him that I don't even know what it would look like or take to be released from the pain and anguish that still resides in my heart, but please keep showing up for us.  I asked the Lord to make His presence known.
Next thing I know, our doctor, Nathan, and I are crying as we all three are staring at 2 precious little heartbeats on the screen.  
He showed up...again.
We are having identical twins.
I am in complete awe of His goodness and I can't seem to find the words to praise Him or even tell our story.  So for now, I just want to celebrate them and what they represent.  His faithfulness.

    I think I came upon your blog from a link on The Harris Family blog... I have a huge love for AR and dear friends in Springdale. So, we don't know each other but I rejoice with you for God's gift of twins. Can't wait to read about future blessings.

  10. I came upon your blog from a link on another blog. My heart leaps for joy for you. God is SO good. I love reading about the way God blesses those that have been through a great trial. I wanted to share my family's life verse with you because this is yet another example of how blessed we are when we put our trust in the Lord.

    “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8

  13. Amy,

    I have read your blog for some time and continue to be amazed by you and your husband's faithfulness. Your faith in the Lord and His plans for your family are really inspirational not only to me, but to many. Have no doubt, God is using you, your life and your story to touch others....I am just one of those God has touched through your experiences. Please keep sharing your journey, your struggles, your questions and your remarkable faith. Bless those 2 little heartbeats :)

    Love in Christ,
