Retrieval Eve

So I should be in bed right now since I need to get up at about 5:00am, but I am just so anxious/excited. I have been reading this book the last couple days that my SIL just sent me in the mail. The name of it is "The Red Sea Rules"-10 God given strategies for difficult times. I haven't gotten very far into it yet but I am loving it and it is just what I need. Especially during these next couple of weeks. The two things that have really helped me so far are, "The same God who led you in will lead you out"....and Red Sea Rule #1, "Realize that God means for you to be where you are." I guess these things have given me so much comfort over the last couple of days because I know that God has my best interests in mind and that He has a perfect plan for our lives. So the fact that He has brought us here means that there is a reason for it(He means for us to be here), and He will eventually lead us out. I don't know if this will be it, but it could be it and I still don't know what His perfect plans are but I am choosing to trust in His plans for our lives. I hope beyond all hope that this is it, but if it's not, I will be OK.

God, I am so excited about tomorrow. I want to believe that this will be it, but I also know that i don't want something that isn't in your timing. I am going to continue to hope that we will be blessed with a baby from this IVF cycle. But if we aren't, I know that we will be ok because of who you are and your perfect plans for our lives. I just pray that our little eggs will be mature and that fertilization will occur. Please give us peace and help us find our strength in you throughout this process. In Jesus name, Amen
