Hope

Overall I've had a pretty good day for a Monday! Had a busy morning at work doing paperwork and charts, but had a good office with Dr. Smith this afternoon. Also, since time changed, Michael gets off work at 6:00 instead of 7:00, so that definitely made me happy!!! Tonight I had to run over to my parents to bring a few things to my mom, so we made a quick Starbuck's run! Forget pumpkin spice, I am IN LOVE with this delicious drink. I'm pretty sure I could sustain on just this for the rest of my life! Ha!
We are now finished with cycle 20 ad we have decided to go a different direction that I will tell you about when the time comes, but just please continue to pray for us and our journey. I still have a lot of hope in my heart and from everything I've been through over the past two years, I've learned if you have ANYTHING, you must have HOPE!

I was so excited tonight when Michael went out to get the mail he came in with this package that was on our doorstep. THANK YOU to my good friend Lauren for sending me this. I LOVE it!!!!! It is already the centerpiece on my wine cabinet! I'm thinking it will be PERFECT in a nursery one day to remind me of the verse that got me through some of my darkest days.

I also found this pretty little reminder to have HOPE Saturday while at Hobby Lobby. I put it on my countertop next to my aspirin and folic acid to remind me to have hope when I take
everyday.

“But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

I've got to try that drink!!! Thanks for posting the verse. I have never come across it but LOVE it! That was the message at church yesterday. I definitely need to share it! And, yes, keep the hope. This is a part of His big plan and I know He has some wonderful ones (plans) for you!
