a little bit of perspective

1-18 051
so now another month has gone by.  i can't believe it.  i was just here yesterday telling you how much better i'd be about blogging.  and really i was just telling myself.  this blog serves as our scrapbook so i'm talking to myself.  and i really do need to be a little better.  just last night harold told me that one morning he decided to go through the archives to look and read about days past.  then he encouraged me to get back to it and reminded me how sweet it is to look back and remember the days we've so easily forgotten.  so i will.  i got a fully charged camera battery and i am determined to get back into the swing of blogging.  not for bloggings sake.  for rememberings sake.  and while we are remembering...

i had a miscarriage 3 weeks ago.  the baby that we thought would grow our family has been taken to heaven already.  what a shock it was to find out at our 12 week ultrasound that georgia's brother or sister wouldn't be coming to meet us here.  and while we are saddened,  we are firm in the mercy and sovereignty of christ.  his is enough and his grace is indeed always sufficient. 

i barely picked up my camera the month of december.  i think i told you that.  there were no pregnant belly pictures like before.  no pictures of georgia in her big sister shirt {that she still wears proudly cuz she's a sister alright...her baby just lives in heaven instead of at her house she'll tell you} no pictures to remember except this one...

so for remembering...december was here...there's the tree lights.  my baby was here...there's the proof.  and now it might be february but guess what...his goodness and mercy follows me all the days of my life.  from decemeber to february and every day after.   

and you can bet your farm on this one.  should god bless us with another baby you'll be seeing lots of us.  lots of remembering and discussing and documenting.  i'm not going to let another season get by me without picking up my heart AND camera to see his blessings through both perspectives!

So beautifully written. I love you. I love your heart for Jesus. And I love that we bounce things off of each other. You are certainly right. Georgia's sweet sibling is in heaven and he or she has good cousins to keep him or her company. :). Never forgotten. Love to all from Colorado.
