In December, we chatted about books you might want to get for the new year.
And today, my verse of the week.
Last week, I told you guys that one of my New Year’s resolutions was to memorize a verse each week. I thought many of you might want to memorize some verses too, so at some point each week, I’m going to publish my verse of the week here and on Facebook and we can memorize them together this year.
Last week, this was my verse…
…which has always been one of my favorites, but I don’t know that I’ve really committed it to memory. So, last week, I did. This verse always reminds me about my road to motherhood which coincidentally all began ten years ago TODAY.
For those of you who have been reading my blog for a long time, then you’ve already heard this story…but for those of you who are fairly new, I thought I’d share. You can read my post on infertility HERE to get the whole picture, but basically after a lot of trying to get pregnant, one miscarriage and six failed IUIs, I decided to take a break from all of the drugs and fertility procedures (hello, overly hormonal Shay!) and enjoy the holiday season instead of focusing so much on trying to get pregnant. Then, we kicked off 2008 by telling our doctor we were ready to proceed with IVF, we filled out all of the paperwork, we paid the first installment and my doctor told me to begin the drugs to get the ball rolling. She always had me take a pregnancy test before beginning any fertility drugs, so that day at work, I took a test so that I could start my meds and BAM. I was somehow pregnant 🙂 .
So, every year when the calendar hits January 16, I always think about that. I, of course, wasn’t super confident in this pregnancy at the beginning because of my previous miscarriage, but God kept giving me a peace that this was going to be different. Little did I know what my road to motherhood would look like. All of those days I cried over becoming a mom, I never in a million years saw it ending up like this…
So, I love this verse and hope it’s one you commit to memory too. For this week, I selected this verse…
I am just randomly picking verses here and there, but hopefully, they’re ones you want to memorize as well.
So, that wraps up the first Tuesday Talk of 2018! Have a wonderful Tuesday! xo
