We have made it to 34 weeks! Today, the girls had their first biophysical test. They passed with flying colors. Both Lily and Lauren weighed in at 4 lbs 13 oz. WOW! We are thankful for healthy twins that are growing ahead of schedule. Delivery day is scheduled for June 10, 2010. 20 days and we will be holding our little girls!!!
God has been so good to us…we never expected to make it this far with all the complications. This has been the biggest physical and emotional trial for me personally, but I have really seen God’s goodness through it all. There have been so many people who have reached out to our family, and have lifted us up in prayer on a daily basis. We are so thankful for the support we have received from our family and friends. When fears, doubts, and sadness come to mind, I remember His sovereignty and goodness. I am so thankful for a husband who is always a constant source of encouragement and love. Landon has been a true servant leader, and shown me so much love and compassion. When the physical pain gets overwhelming, I remind myself of the blessing that we are going to receive at the end of this pregnancy. I wanted to post the lyrics to a song that has been a very powerful reminder in my life. When I feel overwhelmed and discouraged, I listen to this song and it reminds me of truth
As Long As You Are Glorified
Shall I take from your hand Your blessings,
yet not welcome any pain?
Shall I thank You for days of sunshine,
yet grumble in days of rain?
Shall I love You in times of plenty,
then leave You in days of drought?
Shall I trust when I reap a harvest,
but when winter winds blow then doubt?
Are You good only when I prosper,
and true only when I’m filled?
Are you King only when I’m carefree,
and God only when I’m well?
You are GOOD when I’m poor and needy
You are TRUE when I’m parched and dry
You still reign in the deepest valley,
You’re still God in the darkest night.
Oh let your will be done in me,
In Your love I will abide.
Oh I long for nothing else as long as You are GLORIFIED
