A few things I forgot to mention.

As I was talking with a friend of mine today, she asked me about the hemorrhage that threatened to take the life of Joshua at 11 weeks. She asked if there is any concern for me personally when I give birth because of the hemorrhage. I guess that's when it hit me! The hemorrhage is gone! We discovered this at my last appointment down in Indy, but the heart defect has become the focus of my life and not so much the hemorrhage. I completely forgot to mention that! I'm so sorry! :o) With as huge as that thing was, we were all surprised that it's gone! Again, another miracle that God has done. For as much as I hated that stupid thing, and for as long as I bled, and for as much as I started to give up hope that sweet Joshua would live through it, the hemorrhage was a blessing. If it weren't for the hemorrhage, we would have never found the heart defect. Thank God!

Also, I wanted to share another way that God provided for our family just this week. Shane and I have been trying to figure out how we were going to pay for nursing bras for me. I didn't have any left over from either of my 2 other kids, and with having to pump, I needed some. Our first financial priority was to get my new contacts paid for, and then our next purchase was going to be nursing bras/tanks. (Yes, we are that broke that buying nursing bras is considered a big purchase for us.) We have given those burdens over to God because there is nothing we can about it. We feel very strongly that God will provide for our needs at the exact time we need it.

As you all know (or maybe you don't), I work as the director of our church's clothing ministry. We run strictly on donations and we get all sorts of crazy stuff in. Well, this week, someone donated 6 huge bags of children's clothes. Shoved in the bottom of one of the bags were some bras. As I looked closer at them, I realized there were 5 brand new Motherhood Maternity nursing bras. Not thinking too much about it, I put them off to the side to be put out in the store for our customers. I honestly forgot all about them for a few hours. I finally remembered them and went to put them out in the store, when I decided to look at them a littl emore closely. It turned out they were my exact size.

I took them home, washed them, and tried them on. Every single one of them fit, and fit comfortably. Yet another small way that God has provided and reminded Shane and I that we are being taken care of- that we have not been forgotten and that He is faithful.

So God gets 2 yays today! No more hemorrhage, and new nursing bras! :o)

I love how God arranges for even those details of our lives!! I'm so glad that He provided for you in this way, and that He's demonstrating to you in this, that He is in charge of every little detail. :o)
