Scribblings: Harvest

This weeks prompt on Sunday Scribblings is "Harvest".

Autumn, the harvest season, my favorite time of year.  I was born on Thanksgiving day in 1980.  This year on November 27th I'll turn 30!!  I am excited about a new chapter in my life, and I'm praying that's exactly what it is...  This old season of death and heartache -  I am praying, is passed.

November 25th is Levi's due date, was Levi's due date.  So, I'm a little anxious about this 'harvest season.'  Doesn't harvest mean to bring in your bounty?!?  I would love to be bringing home our bounty this season - but alas, it is not to be. 

However, what we do claim for the next few months (year) is to bring in a new harvest.  We have sown seeds of faith, hope and peace in our lives.  It has been a tough season for us, but we have stood strong in our faith, and I believe that the Lord blesses His children.  We sow seeds of thankfulness in sincere hopes of bringing in a harvest of joy.

 Psalm 126:5  Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.

praying for you too. God sees your faith and I am so blessed by your journey too even though we never asked for this. I pray that it will be a different season next year!

Matthew's Heavenly Home said...

We just lost our baby Matthew at 13 weeks on September 3rd. I, too delivered his perfect body at home and it was so amazing to see your incredible pictures of your boys. I wish we had thought to take pictures...it is a HUGE ache in my heart that we only have Matthew's ultrasounds. That kills me. I was not sure how to write you, but please write me if you can. I have never seen pictures that more closely represented our Matthew than the picture of precious Rowan in your hands. My email address is: katrinalewismail@gmail.com Thank you for sharing your painful journey in this blog...it is such an incredible blessing and gift.
