A Ray of Light?
On Sunday night, up at Cove Point Lodge, we had a horrific thunderstorm come through. It had been a gorgeous, romantic day of hiking, laughing with CJ, and enjoying life with carefree thoughts. We sat in our room, with our fantastic view of Lake Superior, watching the lightening crack across the sky above the lake and listening to the deep, rolling thunder. CJ noticed this beam of light cutting through the storm clouds once things settled down: it was gorgeous -- so I persuaded him to take a picture of it.
Today, Mooshie told me after I told her the news of our *possible BFP*, that yesterday she had a really emotional day -- she had to pull her car over due to her tears and she called out to God for peace. She said a warm peaceful feeling overcame her and she felt suddenly positive about this working. When I shared the pics of the light cutting through the clouds, she said it was to her -- a sign from God that the embies were shining through in dark times. Light coming through the darkness. Could this be our light cutting through the darkness of 3 years of infertility?
As CJ and I were leaving Duluth yesterday, my mom took me aside with a hug, and said she is praying so hard for good news, after all the sadness my family is going through lately. My mom's illness and surgeries, my cousin's recent divorce proceedings, and my grandparents' rapidly failing health. Our family is in desperate need of GOOD NEWS. Maybe this WILL be our ray of light of good things to come into our family. Please, let it be so.
Here are some pics of CJ and I enjoying our hike on the point of the Cove on Lake Superior.
