When I first started blogging the purpose was to share moments, pictures and stories with family. It slowly evolved into a place to vent, become transparent and meet people. The amazing world of blogging allows you to tear down the walls of your personal bubble and meet women from all over the world.
In sharing our story of struggling to get pregnant and our two losses, I have been able to "meet" women who have walked that same road. Back in august I was reading through my comments when I came across a woman who became very transparent in her comment. (I tried finding the original comment but was unsuccessful) She shared how her and her husband had been struggling through infertility. I went over to visit her blog and was always sure to check up on her story. She became pregnant and she was pregnant with twins!! I was elated for her! That was back in September. I knew that she was going yesterday to find out the sexes. I went to check to see if she had updated. Her update said that they couldn't find their heartbeats. Both babies had passed away. For a moment I stopped breathing. My heart physically ached for her losses.
Today Jeanna is going to deliver her two babies. Would you leave a kind word of encouragement on her blog. I can not imagine what she is going through at this moment. Please pray that she will have peace and that she won't lose hope.
I wept for her. I wept for someone I have never met in person. I was brought to my knees in prayer for her. That is the power of blogging. That is why I love you and I love the relationships that have been built through blogging. You can reach out to the body of Christ beyond your everyday "real" life. This is more than a hobby, this is a community. A community I am proud to be apart of!
