My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:15,16

Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?"
John 11:40
See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands… Isaiah 49:16a

What to say

 To those of you who check my blog, sorry about the long delay in new posts.
I want to write again, I just don't know what to write.
I have stared at this screen a number of times but the words are just not coming to me.
Partially it is because I have been criticized for being completely honest and open on here and the feelings I have had lately have not always been happy cheery ones.
I don't want to only post when I am feeling sad, though I know that has seemed to be the pattern.

Please know that I am thankful and blessed even in the sad and hard times.
God continues to amaze me and brings peace to my heart.

So, I guess just an update on life for now....
We are enjoying our summer, camping and yard work and playing in the little pool. (well yard work not so much. Shoveling many yards of topsoil is not much fun but has to be done ;o) )
Hopefully it cools off tonight. I have noticed at least a few extra sweat drips with this 41 humidex.
That is all for to you all who follow me and thanks for your patience.


  1. Misha,

    You should never feel that you cannot write on your own blog just because someone rips your experience apart. I know that must have hurt you, but you have lots of people who love and support you, through good and bad times. That is what being a family member and a true friend is all about :)You are richly blessed in faith and have a beautiful family. I have never lost a baby myself, and I don't want to try to pretend that I know what you're going through. One should never pretend that they know somebody else's pain because we are all unique as are our experiences, emotions and pain. It was incredibly insensitive and tasteless to criticize a grieving mother. Remember to weed out the bad things, as they will not help build you up, but good positive love and support will! I love you and am here for you always. xox

  2. I ditto Chrolte's well spoken comments..
    Nobody else is living your life, ergo you are the only expert on it..I must say, you are doing a remarkable job...
    Love you Misha..TC
