I'm so sorry for leading this so late! Work has been crazy busy but I haven't forgotten about any of you. Since my work is getting ridiculously busy, can anyone volunteer to lead next week?
For those new (and lurking) on the board, every Monday (usually) we have a prayer request check-in. It's open to everyone (religious, spiritual, whatever) and all religions. Even if you're not religious/spiritual but would like people to keep you in their thoughts, we'll do that as well.
You can post your prayer request (for you, family, friends, or just anyone really) and a praise report (What happened that was good? A new job? A good doctor's appointment? Even getting out of bed is worthy to be praised!).
We all take turns leading and sometimes share scripture. If there's a scripture you want to share, please post it!
Today's quote comes from Charles Mueller:
?To learn strong faith is to endure great trials. I have learned my faith by standing firm amid severe testings.? ~ Charles MuellerI have to constantly remind myself of this. You never hear about strong people going through life unscathed, right? They have gone through some really awful things but no matter how hard it was, no matter how depressing and challenging it became, they survived. We are survivors. We can and will pull through this together.
Board Prayer Requests:
For all of the pregnant rainbow mamas: I pray you have uneventful pregnancies! There are so many of you now, it gives me a lot of hope!
For the rainbow mamas: I know a few of you don't post here as much as you used to (you have new little ones keeping you busy!) and I just want to say thank you for sharing your story and giving a lot of us hope.
For the new Angel Mamas: I'm just so, so sorry you have to be on this board. I wish you peace and healing as you begin the grieving process.
For all Angel Mamas: Thank you for your overwhelming love and support. Even during my darkest days, you ladies have been my saving grace. I just love and appreciate all of you.
For our angel babies: I know all of our angels are in Heaven playing and getting to know each other. What a wonderful place they are at! I look forward to the day and join our children and play with them.
Last week's prayer requests:
Chels1222: How was this past week for you? With many of us, the resuming normalcy is probably the most difficult part and sometimes you want to the world to stop because you're in pain. Be glad you've made it through a tough week! The first few weeks are the hardest but it does get easier. How's your daughter doing?
nuttycoconut: How were the conferences last week? I hope it wasn't too bad! I'm glad you and DH are reconnecting with your TTC time. That is always such a blessing to hear! Even though I hate that we're on here together, I'm glad we connected in a different way.
ehlersm: How are you doing? What have you been up to?
irichmond86: Did you go in for your appointment? How did it go? It's also very good news that you're having more good days than bad! We're in the same boat together (well, we all are) but for those wondering, irichmond and I lost our sweet boys a day apart.
careyalis: How was the first day back to school? I know your kids missed you so much and I hope there wasn't too much anxiety! Congrats on the pictures! They really are just simply beautiful and thank you so much for sharing them with me.
For my prayer requests and praise reports. I like my veggies before my dessert:
Prayer request: DH and I have temporarily stopped therapy because of the cost and we're still awaiting approval from insurance. Hopefully we can get approved soon so we can resume therapy. I pray that our finances straighten out so can proceed with therapy.
Praise Report: Normally I would complain about how busy and swamped my job is (I'm a legal secretary) but I'm so glad it is. It's been a great distraction. Tomorrow, DH and I are going to the aquarium and I'm so excited!!!
