When A No Becomes A Yes

We are so shocked and humbled. Blessed and blown away. Confused and bewildered, Surprised and in awe. 

The thing that we(and you!) have been praying and petitioning for, for years and years and years, has suddenly happened. 

Our no has become a yes.

Another little Spena is set to arrive in May of 2015!

Psalm 126: 1-6

“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy….those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, will return with songs of joy.”

I’ll be back on Monday with an enormous details post, filled with all of the events that have led us here and what the current status of things are. But, for today, just, someone pinch me because I still can’t believe that this is real.

    Ever since I started following along whenever I read a post from you I would say a little prayer for this! I saw something on Instagram, and didn't understand it because I had not read this yet!
    I know for me even though your journey has been hard, it has been an encouragement.
    We got pregnant so quickly the first and second time (we lost our first), but this time it has not been like that. In my mind I was "supposed" to be pregnant a whole ago. But I am having to let that go. The no may become a yes like you and it may not, and that is okay too.
    Thank you for the encouragement today and congrats (and sorry for the really deep comment today :))

  15. I could NOT be happier for you!!!! So glad God decided your answer was, "wait" and not "no". Can't wait to hear your story and see how things are going this time around. OMG abby is going to be the BEST big sister. Singing a joyful song for you today, girl. What a huge answer to prayer!

  16. I have been off the blogging radar since having my son a month ago, but I just saw this and wanted to say congratulations (be it, a little late!). I am so thrilled and excited for you and your family. God is good, all the time!!! 🙂
