We all have a story.
If you've lived for very long, you've experienced laughter and tears, joy and sorrow, moments that sear your soul.
Every one's story is different, each plot with its own twists and turns. Always, God is at work, and often we have no clue in the present what He is unfolding for our future.
For the next several Mondays, beginning September 2, I'm going to share part of my story. I want to record the memories for our daughters, to give them all there is to know about their older sister.
The theme of this story is God's grace. While sadness is interwoven through its pages, these posts won't be written for tears. They'll be written to tell how God's grace is evident in every trial - how the people He places in our lives and the circumstances He surrounds us with can always work to His glory.
Other women have carried anencephalic babies. We've all made difficult choices as we walked the road given to us. What I'll share are the choices my husband and I made, the experiences we encountered, and the lessons God taught us on our journey.
Wherever you are in your story, may you embrace it today and seek God's power and strength to glorify Him in its pages.
