I am posting another Casting Crowns video, with a song that has been in my heart for the past few days, “Praise You in this Storm.” It just describes so perfectly how I feel right now, and speaks to my heart with what I am going through. This is a live version at a concert, where they first explain the inspiration behind the song, which I really enjoyed listening to.
I also have a prayer request. Tomorrow we will be going back to the doctor for a second sonogram – to make sure there is no mistake about the baby no longer being alive – before they move ahead with inducing labor. From there we will schedule a time for me to go to the hospital to be induced, and I will give birth to this tiny 20 week baby. (Technically, they believe the baby passed away around 17.5 weeks gestation, and I am currently at 20.5 weeks). This is all getting harder, as I realize this baby will be leaving my body, and will truly be gone. This past week has all been a little hazy, as I have still carried the baby, but it is all becoming more real as this appointment and labor approach. I would appreciate much prayer in all of this!
