It Never Gets Easy


Tonight we set up shop in the dining room to record Laura sharing our story from infertility to China to Ethiopia to Brighton to Meron to Brighton Their World to Mebrate to Zechie...

Simple little thing we were gonna do for a church in North Carolina that is gonna share our story with a group there. Simple, right?


WRONG!

Man - this thing never gets easier to revisit. I know God wants us to and I know He wants us to share it and point back at Him wherever we can...

But man - even in the comfort of our own house with nobody to listen but us - it broke me again and again.

And the girls - who we let stay up late cuz spring break kicked in - were being so good and listening so intently.

Then I look over and see little Mebbie - who I don't think has ever heard the whole story shared like this - with tears just streaming down her face.

Broke me again. And again. And again.


Meron is apparently kinda bored with the story cuz this is how we found her afterwards...


Thankful for her though - cuz even in her sleep she helped lighten up what became a heavy night of sharing...

God is good...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your story with us. It means more than words can say. Praying that God will continue to use it to bless and heal and touch lives like it has so many times already. Love you all.

holy moly Shelly... those are some really kind words.

We try hard to point it all back at Him. We miss and fail often - but we do try!

Thank you so much for that encouragement.
