This Too Shall Pass... (**updated as of Monday)
So I'm back. I apologize to those of you that check this frequently for updates. I did want to post something new but because I was home sick all week, the only news I could have "updated" you on was the fact that I have blown my nose for the millionth time. Figured that wouldn't make for the most exciting post.
Anyway... I am finally feeling better (only a little "sniffly" now) and Jon and I managed to get out of the house this afternoon, to enjoy some much anticipated sunshine. I've included some pictures for your viewing pleasure :)
The only other thing I have to post right now is a request for prayer. Jon and I are going through a seriously tough time right now and had a REALLY awful day yesterday. I can't get into any details but all I can say is that we would truly appreciate your prayers. I would have to say that yesterday was actually the worst day of my life up until this point and we are under an incredible amount of stress right now. Today was proof to us that God can bring amazing peace even after something as terrible as yesterday, but we still have a tough road ahead. Please just pray that God would bring His wisdom, discernment and healing to this "situation" and that He would just wrap us in his unfailing love. Only He can fill us with the peace we need.
"Yes, he alone is my Rock, my rescuer, defense and fortress. Why then should I be tense with fear when troubles come?" Psalm 62:2
*** Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to those of you that have already been praying for us! Its amazing how we have felt your prayers already. The reason I am adding this little blurb to this post is because I feel I should clarify things a bit. As I said, I can't get into the details of this situation, but I do want to ensure you that the issue is NOT between Jon and I!! Just in case some of you are freaking out that we are having marital problems---that COULD NOT be any further from the truth! We are more in love than ever. We're just going through some INSANELY tough family stuff right now and are praying that it can be resolved as quickly as possible. So...although things are really crappy right now, please rest assured that it isn't between Jon and I :)
Thanks again for your prayers so far and we'd appreciate the continuation of them if you think of it!
