Doubting Swizz

DisclaimerIf you are looking for a blog post which is full of spiritual truths and sounds like it was written by Mother Theresa, I can give you some links to a few other blogs.  If you, like me, live life day to day and question what is real, what you think and believe, what others say...then this is the post for you.

I often wonder if I am the only person who does this:

I will be reading the Bible, which I believe to be the infallible Word of God, I do...
And will find myself wondering how they did it.

How did Jesus make it look like he was taken up to Heaven and hidden by a cloud?

How did they make it look like they did all of the miracles?

How much planning went into pulling off all of these Houdini style magic tricks?

I can picture a room full of men planning and scheming.

Coming up with ways to pull off hoax after hoax.

"One of us can pretend we are dying.  Or dead."

"I can act like I'm blind!"

And then it will hit me.


Why would they do this?

What benefit would there be for them?

(um, really?  my mind goes there?  when they were poor?)



To be beheaded?

I will shake my head as I sit reading and realize just where my thoughts have taken me.

And be so glad that the God of the universe understands.

And. Still. Loves. Me.

Still waiting...

The young lady cancelled the appointment with the agency.

No reason was given, so we don't know if she will call back.

Please, please, please
keep praying for HER and for her SON and for the UNBORN BABY!

Our God is bigger than any doubt or struggle we go through.

We just need to trust and obey.

And Believe.

A Possible Child? Or two?

If you are new here and have no idea the roller coaster of our Infertility Journey go click on the tab at the top of this page.  Go ahead!  Grab a box of tissues, read through our journey, then come back and read our latest news!  

I have to admit a certain amount of unbelief.
Did I mishear God when He promised He would increase our family?
Is He going back on His promise?
(I know!  I know!  HE KEEPS HIS PROMISES!  It is ME who has an issue here, NOT GOD!)

He keeps reminding me of Noah.
Who prepared in the face of others thinking he was crazy.

I've often wondered if Noah kind of thought he was crazy, too?

A few days ago a friend approached me and said her Mom works at an adoption agency and there is an 18 month old little boy who might possibly be placed soon.

His mom is pregnant again as well.

HER mom just passed away, and she had been the person caring for the child.

Were we interested?

Are we interested!?!


So right now we are asking for prayers.

Prayers for this child whose world is possibly about to be turned upside down, that God would place him where he NEEDS to be not where we desire him to be.

For the unborn child.

For us to have peace through this process.

And for financial blessing if God wants us to have one or both of these children!

I find it amusing that, like Noah, our blessing might come in a pair!

In the meantime please, please leave a comment, message, or something letting us know you are praying!  It means a lot!

Flu Season

JMonster and I just had a conversation about an illness I had recently.

"Mommy, I know why you felt bad!"

"Why is that buddy?"

"It's flu season."

"Where did you learn that?"

"I saw a sign saying 'Power to stop the Flu' and Aunt Bambi said it is because it is flu season."

"So you need to get a flu shot Mommy!"

"Except, shouldn't it be a STOP the flu shot?"

Have you had your 

(JMonster took this of himself...I think it is HILARIOUS!)
