Merry Christmas Bloggy World!

I just wanted to send my Christmas Greetings and wishes for a wonderful holiday and a happy new year to you all. You cannot imagine how thankful I am for all the wonderful godly women I have met since starting to blog. I have been challenged, inspired, encouraged and supported by so many of you and my heart is so very grateful.

You have not been afraid to share you hopes and fears, your ups and downs, your struggles and your successes. Thank you for being real in your Christian faith. If we all just sat around and wrote about happy stuff and never acknowledged those moments of doubt and weakness or be open and honest then it would all be for nothing. And worse, it would leave many of us feeling alone and thinking that there is something wrong within us. But that is not the case and I just wanted to let you all know that to encourage you all to continue sharing your hearts!

I also wanted to give a few shout outs:

Bouncing Baby Buckeye: You were my first bloggy friend! Thank you for welcoming me into this strange new world. I wish you all the best with your new pregnancy!

Let's Make a Baby, How Hard Could It Be?: Thank you for encouraging me in my darkest times in this journey. You did not turn away and see me as another whiny infertile but someone being open with my struggles and encouraged me to keep pushing in my faith.

God's Faithfulness Through Infertility: All I have to say is, wow. Your steadfastness through infertility is awesome. It has challenged me many times, thank you.

Missed Conceptions: While I just found your blog not to long ago I could not stop reading. Your openness and your literary zeal for seeking out truth in God's word spoke to my heart and has helped so much. Congratulations on your Christmas miracle!

I could go on but these are just a few. Thank you all and I wish you a wonderful Christmas!

Your comment about me means the world to me. I, too, have just begun reading your blog but see your strength and faith through it all. I know God is building up testimonies in each and every one of us. And as we all share our stories (the hard times and amazing times too), He will be glorified in working through it all. I wish you the merriest of Christmas. God bless!
