Dwell in Me

Seeking God in the Every Day

Busy Busy (Thank the Lord)


I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. I think it’s because I’ve been busy with all the Christmas preparations. We had a Christmas-party filled weekend that started with a caroling party at our house, his company party, and the church’s Christmas pageant on Sunday. We’re hosting DH’s family at our house on Christmas Eve, and I have been gathering groceries, wrapping gifts, and trying to finish my present for DH. Oh, and I decided in a fit of inspiration (read: insanity) to try to make homemade gourmet marshmallows for the members of his family as Christmas gifts. I’ll let you know how that goes.

I’m so thankful for this busyness. Especially because in the few moments I find myself alone with my thoughts (like waiting in the customer service line at Walmart, ugh!), IF has been starring center stage. It’s worse than normal. And when the radio plays my now least-favorite song of all time (“A Baby Changes Everything,” by Faith Hill), I change the station as the tears start flowing.

Oh Christmas.

I do so love this time of year. Except when I remember that while the whole world is expecting a baby, my womb is still empty.

Merry Christmas everybody. Wishing supernatural comfort, strength, peace, and joy to everyone dealing with hurt and loss this holiday season. I may be back before the 25th; I’ll definitely be back before year-end.

  1. I hate that song now too… ugh. It’s definitely a blessing that things are so busy this time of year and that we’re not fully focused on all of this stuff! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas! xoxo

  2. Merry Christmas to you, too!

    I agree that the holidays are really tough when you’re infertile. They very much revolve around traditional families with children. Wishing us all peace and happiness!

    And, wow, I’m impressed about the gourmet marshmallows- I can’t imagine how you make those!
