A few days ago I saw this short (13 minute) video by Mark Mallett. I don't know if any of you are familiar with him, he is a Canadian singer-songwriter and Catholic evangelist...and when he speaks, I find it profoundly moving.
So I thought I would share this video with you because after reading and really reflecting on this post by TCIE, (I just loved that post, TCIE!) I saw this video and just thought that it really related to my struggle with losing babies and not being able to bring home a second child. And sometimes I think, "How can I give thanks to God for this?" And "this" can be many things.
Yesterday, for our family, it was this:
A rock through the sliding glass door; kicked up by the lawnmower. :( Luckily it only went through the one pane of glass instead of both panes, so thankfully there was no glass inside the house (Thanks, God!).
Well, that, coupled with my husband's blown out tire as he was exiting the highway, oh and the cat throwing up on our bed...but the cat throwing up is more of a "common occurrence" in our household....those were our crosses (albeit light ones) yesterday.
My trying to conceive journey however, is a heavy cross, but Mark exhorts us to give thanks to the Lord even when we are bearing the cross through our own suffering. We cannot forget God's blessings! This video will give you encouragement in whatever suffering situation you are going through...not just an infertility journey!

I hope you get as much out of it as I did! :)
