For those of you who were still snoozing during my Blog Talk Radio interview this morning, *here is the link.*
I’m sounding very southern.
Love you all!
Renae, when I saw the link I just had to take time out to listen — and I’m so glad I did! I loved learning more about you, my friend. What a story! At the conference in Sept., you said you wished you had time to tell me about some of the things God had done in your life, and now I’ve heard about some of them! What a blessing.
I’d love to get the e-book you mentioned (ckbarker at gmail dot com), and I’m going to send the link to this post and your interview to someone I think your story would really minister to. Blessings to you!!
Thanks, Cheryl! I will send that to you ASAP. By all means, send it to anyone and everyone who you think will benefit! The link, and the e-book.
Blessings to you, my friend.
I’m like Cheryl, when I saw the link I had to check it out. Thank you so much for sharing. It was such a blessing, and I’m sure there are many more out there who will be blessed by it as well.
Thanks so much, Tori! I hope so. 🙂
I loved the interview. What a blessing to hear your story and how God kept His promise to you in His perfect timing.
I didn’t know you were a singer/songwriter, and you need to keep us updated on your book projects!
Thank you, Lillie. God is so, so good, and He has proven that to me time and again!
Yes, in another life (it seems) I was a singer/songwriter. I’m afraid that’s a rather dormant talent now, though I do still sing on our church praise team.
And to my children.
Thanks for your encouragement!
You did a great job, Renae. And what an inspiring story!
Thank you Renae, good to hear your voice too.
Hi Amrita! Now, if I could just figure out a way to hear YOUR voice! 😉
Blessings to you!
I’m a little bit behind schedule here in listening to your interview. So glad tonight to find a link to it!
Please do send me your e-book! allenbloggermail at gmail dot com.
Recently Jeanette posted one of my songs “We prayed for a miracle” — the “miracle” we were praying for was that God would see fit to save our third pregnancy that was under the threat of miscarriage. We’d come through about five years of infertility and this was to be the third loss in two years. I didn’t know if I would survive the mental and emotional anguish of another loss because my age was becoming a factor! But we felt as if God turned His face away when we prayed because within a few hours of being anointed and prayed for by the elders of our church, I was on a stretcher in the OR — another one gone.
A few days later, my honey put his hands on my shoulders and pulled my droopy face upward to look me in the eye. And he spoke a word of faith into my life: “You know, Carol-Ann, I believe you will be pregnant again by the end of the year and this one will live”!
As I listened to your story, I was just amazed by some of the simlarities. God in His mercy sometimes graciously allows us to “hear” His voice through that confident “knowledge” of something and it carries us through the tough stuff!
I was pregnant by the end of the year — and we just returned tonight from her first orchestra concert in Grade Nine. God’s “perfect timing” for us was that if the pregnancy we had pleaded for had remained, we would not have Kinza today because she was conceived before the expected birth date of her sibling.
Kinza arrived in a 4lbs + a bit and 6 wks early. When she was almost two, the memories of infertility and miscarriage seemed far-removed in the distant past — almost like an unreal story. We decided we better get busy and do the baby thing again as the years were marching on! I got pregnant quickly and that baby also, in the fourth month, was taken away. “No heart-beat”! What dreadful words for any Mom to have to hear!
We knew that would be our last try and my honey knew that he was not up to adoption! (We had the discussion!) He gave me a little ring with a single heart on it and the teensiest chip of a diamond in the center. I believe Scripture consoles us that babies by miscarriages are in heaven, and, like King David, we will be reunited with them one day. Tiny names for tiny little ones, I look forward to gathering all five together one day: Dot, Pip, Chris, Kinza and Pat.
This “comment” has ended up being more like an email, so please feel free to treat it as such as I know you edit the comments before you post them! 🙂
Oh, Carol-Ann! I love to hear stories of God’s goodness. Thank you so much for sharing. I am walking out the door, or I would comment more – I’ll e-mail you later.
God is so good, isn’t He?
Okay, I have been the slowest of all to listen to the link. I do have the ebook already but have not had a chance yet to read it, but the little bit of time I had to look at it gave me a little clue.
Now I am weepy — the good kind, the kind that comes from amazement at the depth of God’s goodness and the unbelievable beauty of the tapestry He is weaving. In our hard times we cannot see the way the dark colors will set off the blazing glory of the magnificent colors to come.
Thank you so much for sharing your story, Renae! What a faith-builder it is! (Ebook, here I come…)
Thanks, Jeanette! You have the “unpretty” version of the e-book. Go ahead and read it, but I’ll also send you the pretty one when Thomas is finished with it. 😉
Yes, God is so good. Even when it doesn’t feel that way! We can always, always know that He is working things out for our good.
I’ll look forward to getting the “pretty” version!
PS: I love your accent!
What accent? 😉
Ha ha! 🙂 The one that makes you sound “very southern.” (and I quote!)
