I have strengthened my faith in god

Postby mrssnailsnail » Fri Feb 10, 2006 11:23 pm

Hi everyone,

I am the only catholic in my family, i chose to become one at the age of 9, the rest of my family do not believe in god. My dh does not believe in god either. I guess that so many bad things have happened in my upbringing (homelessness, rape, abuse etc) that my family can't see that there is a god, they'd be forever asking why these things happen to us. As most of you know I had a mmc in september 05 when I was carrying twins, i was devastated but decided that god had chosen them for something special. I then mc at 5+2wks in January this year, followed by a mc 4 weeks later which i am currently going through. My dh is deeply saddened and feels like we are being punished for something. I still think that my angels have been chosen for a special purpose, that some babies unfortunately just aren't meant to be born. We have a wonderful DD (see my pic to the left) and she is such a blessing, I was told at 15 that I wouldn't be able to concieve due to endometriosis, however, it seems that I can concieve fine, i just can't carry. Don't get me wrong, i am increadibly upset over what has happened but I don't believe that I am being punished or god is being cruel. If it weren't for the heartache I wouldn't understand the true blessings that I have in my DD and DH, as well as having a nice home etc. I just wanted to say that I stopped going to church as I hated going alone but I shall be going back, i'd gotten to the stage where I only prayed if I wanted something. I want to show the lord that I love him (or her, if we're politically correct) and that I am truly greatful for all of the blessings I have recieved.

Sarah,
That is wonderful! I am so happy to hear that through all your heartache you have realized that God would never make us go through something that we cannot get through. Everything He does is for a reason and I'm glad you have come to terms with letting God plan the lives of your angel babies. :angel: :angel: :angel: All three of them are servants of God!

Your daughter is a true miracle if youthink about it b/c you were told you couldn't have children. :ptl: He is truly wonderous!
