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.

and look....three little clouds at the base of that light equal 3 beautiful chances at pregnancy...and the light pointing to God shows that you are on the pathway to Heaven--called Motherhood. *sob*

Josh didn't fully believe our BFP until my beta. He wanted true medical proof... dork!

Amy said...

I get chills now everytime I read one of your posts! Congrats again!

My mother used to tell me that the ray of light coming through the clouds was God blessing someone.

or maybe it's hot glue...

either way, you're blessed.

I can't wait for tomorrow's results.
