There are words in my head that I enjoy sharing on the Internet.
There are words in my heart that only I will see on the pages of my journals.
Then there are words in my thoughts, and they will stay there.
It has been 20 years this month since we were last pregnant. This story of our life is one God has been nudging me to share.
And one I’ve been avoiding.
Why bring up the past? Why re-live the pain? Why bother?
Will I be able to remember much about this story?
What parts of it do I share?
Twenty years later seems like the appropriate time to write this story. So here I go, joining these words in my head and my heart, words that I thought no one would ever know. It’s not really my story or our story, it’s God’s story. A story of Hope, even when life doesn’t work out as planned.
Many are hopeless. Many have given up. I was so hopeless but God rescued me and filled me with His Hope. Maybe our story will give someone hope. That is my prayer.
2 Corinthians 1:4
