God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

Faith counting on Him to get us through the Storm.

We received this card from one of our church family friends, and it has touched my heart. This below is what was on the card, it has helped me to get through this past week and I hope will continue to in the future give me hope, I read it every morning with tears in my eyes. Even through I have no hope right now, this below gives me hope for the future.

What do we do when we face
challenges that make
us wonder what’s ahead? The
answers are not always easy,
and the direction is not always
clear. In these circumstances,
our hope is in God alone. Our
lives and our times are in His
hands, and He assures us that
He is the rock we can stand
Upon through the storm.

Believing with you—
In the wisdom of His ways,
In the goodness of His love,
And in the assurance of His presence
As he keeps you every step of the way.

“From the end of the earth will I cry
unto Thee, when my heart is
overwhelmed: lead me to the rock
that is higher than I.” Psalm 61:2
-------Roy Lessin

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.
They are plans for good and not for evil,
to give you a future and a hope. In those
days when you pray, I will listen.
JEREMIAH 29:11 & 12

Carter is dealing with it in his own way right now, he hasn't opened up to me. I think that he is trying to be strong for me. I pray that he can and will open up in time to me with the miscarriage. I know that everyone has their own way of dealing with things and their own time, I have let him know that I am here for him when he needs me and is ready to talk about it, he has been great. I am still struggling with this, I know give it time.

Take your time. Let him deal with it and process through it. Pray often.

Thinking of you both. Thank you for the update and what sweet friends it sounds like you have.

Hi. Continuing to think of you. One thing that helped me.... try to get your hands on the book "Grieving the Child I Never Knew." I tried many after my miscarriages but this one helped me immensely.... helped me to not feel quite so crazy as I walked through the grieving process. She even has a chapter on dealing with the fact that husbands deal with grief differently.... and that's okay. That chapter alone helped me and helped my marriage a lot during those difficult days.

Men process things in such different ways. Women tend to cry and talk about things more while men internalize it all. I think part of the reason they do that is b/c they think that talking to us about it will only upset us more. Just give him gentle reminders that you're there when he's ready. He'll come around.

Ditto on the book "Grieving the Child I Never Knew".

Thinking about you!!!
