Terrible News

I don't even know how to write this. I have just learned this afternoon that I have had a miscarriage. I have no words to describe how crushing this is to us, and I beg for your prayers. I know that the Lord is near to us, and I want nothing less than for Him to use this for His purposes and to make me more like Him. I have no choice but to trust Him. If you know people who know that I was pregnant, it would be very much appreciated for you to contact them and let them know this has happened. That would be the biggest help to us at this time, as we want people to know yet, as you can imagine, it is very hard to do so right now. It has been a very dear blessing to already have family shower us with their love and comfort this afternoon, and for that, I am very thankful. Thank you in advance for your prayers...we know God will answer them and take care of us during this very painful experience.
