Seeing Where this Takes Me

I am sitting on the couch with my laptop and trying to convince myself to go for it. Figure out how to blog, see how it works. Maybe this is what I need to do to start sharing what is going on in my life. This could be a way to start sharing with others how through the loss of a baby I am learning to find the blessings in life, not just in those joyous times but also in the deepest valleys. I'm searching for what God would have me learn and share through this rain in my life. I want others to see how God was at work in my life when I didn't even realize it, how I can look back and see his hands were carrying Madelynn and carrying me. More will come as I try to organize these thoughts. I want to make sure that this experience is pleasing to God and honors the memory of Madelynn Lorene. So, I'm off to figure this out and am anxious to share with you the blessings!


  1. You are an amazing woman, mother, and wife. I am in awe of you. You are a testament to others of pure strength, faith and courage. If I had an ounce of what you exude I'd be blessed. I am thankful I've now met dear Madelynn. The photostory was beautiful. I love you Cousin.


  2. Denise,such beautiful words and a beautiful spirit you have shared in this first blog. I will be praying for you as you continue on this journey that will glorify our Lord in ways we cannot imagine. Don't become weary! Galatians 6:9
