I couldn't have planned this

Nervous, excited, humbled, and nervous.  Yep, that pretty much sums up my feelings right about now. Tomorrow evening and Monday evening, I will be sharing my testimony on infertility at two different women's events.  This will be the first time I'll be publicly sharing these intimate moments, and I couldn't have timed them any better.  

I had been tentatively scheduled to speak at tomorrow's event (Women of Hope) for a couple of months, but I had requested it to be postponed as much as possible in hopes of speaking once the devotional was released.  The second event (The Living Room) on Monday, October 17 kind of just happened.  I had previously mentioned to the director that I would eventually like to share, but we left it at that.  And then last month, at the closing of last month's event, she shared that she didn't have anyone lined up to speak yet and asked if I wanted to share.  

Do you know what happens between these two dates? 

October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which is observed annually as day of remembrance for pregnancy loss and infant death which includes, but is not limited to, miscarriage, still birth, SIDS or the death of a newborn.

In the devotional, I share how our family was affected by fetal death; but that's only part of the story.  I'm excited to share the rest of the story at Women of Hope and The Living Room.

I couldn't have planned this, even if I had tried.  It was perfectly orchestrated.  Only God could had planned the timing of these two events.  Even though I am nervous, I'm trusting that it's His Perfect Timing.

When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them.
