When it rains, it storms.

First, we had a chemical pregnancy from our March transfer. 

Then we had a failed transfer in July. 

Then the loaner car that we had been borrowing from my mom (until after the next transfer when we could afford a new one) died. We got a new (to us) car on Friday. Complete with our first car payments. 

Then today, Mat noticed a spot on the ceiling. Yep, the roof is leaking. We had a hail storm at the end of June and he thinks that is what caused it. Hopefully insurance covers it and we only have to pay the deductible. 

I just feel like nothing is going right. I know we're very blessed to have wonderful family (including our miracle snowflake!), good jobs, great property, fantastic friends, and our Savior... But sometimes it's just hard. 
So blessed to have this little girl. Lord, help me to count my blessings more than my worries. 


  1. I'm sorry you're going though that all. I know the feeling! But take confidence that God knows the plans He has for you- and perhaps those plans include a sweet spiritual season of trust and growth. You're in my prayers.

  2. So sorry it's been so bumpy lately. Looking in her sweet face has to help. She is growing so beautifully!

  3. Remember that our faith grows the most through our weaknesses and struggles. Keep trusting the Lord's plans. He hasn't forgotten you!
